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)

  1. How to unfreeze alipay account? I want to pay at taobao, but I can’t pay because they state that my alipay account has been frozen. For your info, I don’t have any accounts bank in China and doesn’t have any accounts of alipay.

  2. I verified my alipay account using my passport. Now, alipay is asking me to verify my bank card which I cannot because I typed in the wrong code too many times. What can I do to verify my bank card on alipay? The app would not let me and I need to use my money, I cannot withdraw or send money to someone else. I still have the same phone number. Thanks!

      1. Hi,
        I saw your recommendation is to go to bank of China. May I know which part of China as some part of China do reject foreigner to open an account as they required a lot of documentation.
        May I ask, how many 1 China bank account and 1 passport can register how many alipay account?

        1. I suggest you go to big cities like shanghai or guangzhou.you have to try different branches in that city because each branch has different policies.Another bank I recommend is ICBC,they are more friendly to foreigners in terms of documents needed.
