Instructions on how to sign up for and verify your Alipay account without having a Chinese bank account

Finally, you can create and verify an Alipay account without having a Chinese bank account! Registration for Alipay has always been straightforward, but verifying an Alipay account as a foreigner has proven to be extremely difficult in the past. It requires you to have a Chinese bank card in order to complete the verification process, which is an extremely high bar to clear. However, Alipay has changed its rules in the last two years, and now you only need a passport and a photograph of your face to have a verified Alipay account. It is my intention in this article to walk you through the process of setting up and verifying your Alipay account without the use of a Chinese bank card. Please keep in mind that the Alipay account I mentioned in this article refers to the Alipay personal account, which is distinct from the Alipay business account, which is offered by Alipay to certain foreign corporations.

The Benefits of Having an Alipay Account That Has Been Verified

If you intend to use Alipay on a regular basis, I recommend that you verify your account. You can still shop on Taobao even if your Alipay account is not verified. However, if you have an Alipay account that has been verified, there are numerous advantages:

  • There is no longer any danger to your Taobao and Alipay accounts
  • Because your account has been verified using your legal name, Alipay will have greater confidence in you and will not freeze or restrict your account in an unexpected manner.
  • Your money from your tourpass is better protected.
  • To be completely honest, your tourpass money is no longer secure, and Alipay reserves the right to suspend or terminate your account at any time. Your tourpass will be more secure if you pay
  • with verified Alipay.
  • Verify the validity of your account.
  • In the event that you are using a 1688 account, you can complete the verification of your 1688 account by connecting it to your verified Alipay account. This will also greatly reduce the likelihood of
  • your 1688 account being restricted or being unable to log in as a result of this.

Register for an Alipay account.
It is possible to register on your computer or on your mobile phone, but Alipay will still require you to download the Alipay app in order to complete the verification process, so it is recommended that you download the Alipay app directly to complete the registration process.

Download and install the Alipay app on your smartphone.

You can get it directly from Google Play or Apple's App Store by searching for Alipay() in the respective app stores. It is necessary to grant Alipay access to your camera during the installation process because we will need it to scan your passport and perform face recognition when verifying your Alipay account later. installalipay \sStep2.

Then enter your mobile phone number next to it, making sure not to include the "0" at the beginning of your mobile number.

On the verification code page, enter the four-digit verification code that you received in the previous step. registeralipay3 \sregisteralipay4 If everything goes according to plan, you will be redirected to the Alipay homepage, after which we will proceed to verify your Alipay account.

  • Verification of the passport chip and the wearer's face
  • Check the person's face
  • Bank card for the People's Republic of China
  • Usually, we opt for the most straightforward option – verify face.

It is still the most reliable method of verification to use a mainland China bank card. Once you have completed the bank verification, you can use your alipay balance to receive and pay with larger amounts. However, registering for a Chinese bank account is not straightforward; you must travel to China in order to open an account in person. You will not be able to open a bank account from outside the country. If you'd like to learn more, check out this guide on how to open a bank account in China as a foreign national.

In order to make future use of your Alipay account more convenient and secure, we must set up your Alipay account after you have registered and verified your account with Alipay.  Select the Settings option from the drop-down menu in the upper right corner of your user center. In the settings page, select the first option, "Account and Security," from the drop-down menu. Configuring Alipay2. At this point, we've arrived at the "Account and Security" page. You can customize a variety of aspects of your account right here. I'll go over the three most important ones: email address, Alipay password, and login password. By entering your email address, you will be able to log in directly with that email address in the future. The term "Alipay password" refers to the Alipay payment password, which is a 6-digit number that is extremely important. You must use it when making payments on Taobao or 1688, as well as when making changes to some of your alipay information. As a result, I recommend that you write down this password on a piece of paper so that you don't forget it. Login password refers to your Alipay login password, which can be a combination of numbers and letters in some cases.

A Few Closing Remarks
You should now have a fully funded Alipay account, provided that you followed the steps I outlined above.

You can then go shopping on Taobao or use your tourpass credit to pay for your purchases.
