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)
