Alipay Account Verification for Foreign Users

Updated on October 8, 2019

Verifying your account helps for a few reasons.

  • You can send and receive money from other alipay users.
  • You can open a store on taobao.com as a foreigner.
  • Verifying adds a layer of security to your account.

Once you’ve officially been verified by the system, your account will display a blue check mark to show you’ve verified your account.

Things you need to prepare for verification.

1. A copy of your passport.(biographical page+stamped page)

2. Bank card issued by banks located in China Mainland.

(Note: You can not use bank cards issued by China bank branches in your country to verify your alipay account.)

Here is a guide on how to open China bank accounts as a foreigner.

  1. Hello, I need to use Alipay to buy something from a chinese game, however alipay requires verification to pay, and I don’t have a passport. Is there a solution I can do to verify my account to buy things with my mastercard?

  2. I create a Alipay account so I try creating a taobao account Alipay but when I’m going to log in in taobao, it says “该账户已被限制登录” (The account has been restricted from logging in)
    How can it be solved? Should I have done first the identity verification from Alipay and then try creating the account?

  3. I already create a account in Alipay so try creating a taobao account using Alipay but when I’m going to log in in taobao, it says “该账户已被限制登录” (The account has been restricted from logging in)
    How can it be solved? Should I have done first the identity verification and then try creating the taobao account?
