Tried using my sister's Taobao account to buy something
Don't accept Hong Kong credit cards anymore
Fine, sign up for Alipay. Must use a phone number, cannot use email
Successfully add Hong Kong credit card to Alipay
Scans code - Can't pay for someone's basket using a different Alipay account. Please set up a Taobao account under your name
Fine, let's login using my Alipay QR code. Code doesn't scan, account doesn't exist
Fine, so let's create up a new Taobao account (lost my old phone number)
Robot slider, Sends you a 2fa code
You have to do real person identification
Can't do it on a laptop, fine let's download the app. App wants to paste from Clipboard as soon as you open it.
Login, Robot slider, App sends you another 2fa code
'Have to do real person identification'
App sends you a third 2fa code. This one never arrives
Have taken me over 20 minutes to do nothing. The Amazon onboarding experience is under a minute.

I've given up and I'm taking the MTR to go to my local Decathlon instead.

試著用我姐姐的淘寶賬號買東西
不再接受香港信用卡
好吧,注冊支付寶。必須使用電話號碼,不能使用電子郵件
成功將香港信用卡加入支付寶
掃碼——不能使用不同的支付寶帳戶為某人的購物籃付款。請以您的名義注冊一個淘寶帳號
好的,讓我們用我的支付寶二維碼登錄。掃不出來,帳戶不存在
好吧,讓我們創建一個新的淘寶賬號(我的舊電話號碼丟了)
機器人滑塊,向您發送2fa(使用密碼和驗證碼登錄的方式)代碼
你必須做真人身份驗證
不能在筆記本電腦上完成,好吧,讓我們下載應用程序。應用程序希望在您打開它時立即從剪貼板粘貼。
登錄,機器人滑塊,應用程序向您發送另一個2fa代碼
“必須進行真人身份驗證”
應用程序會向您發送第三個2fa代碼。這個永遠不會到來
我花了20多分鐘什么也沒做成。而亞馬遜的入門體驗只需不到一分鐘。

我已經放棄了,轉乘地鐵去當地的迪卡儂。
