I have 50,000+ followers on Douyin and want to start a Douyin store and sell products in the future. In order to be able to sell, I need Chinese ID verification and a linked bank account that also is linked to the ID. I have neither.
I'm hesitant to use a relatives ID because all most relatives are old and if they pass away my account might be screwed .
Are there other options for foreigners to open a Douyin store? Move to China and start a company?
