Many customers ask me why they Passport not acceptable by Alipay? I have to explain all here in detail if you want to active your alipay (Not verified, Foreigner cant Verified, Can Only Active):
Firstly, Sign up a Alipay account with your own Mobile Number (Dont Use a temporary China Number when you travel to China)
Secondly, After you Login Alipay in APP, They will ask you indentify Verification. Just go to Verify Face Option to Upload your Passport, If you don’t have one, You try to upload your Nation ID. Remember to upload you photo instead of a Copy from Scanner.
Lastly, After submitting Passport, It shows in Progress with Green Color Text. Just need to Wait For approval within 24 hours
If you not sure whether your acc is actived or not, You can order a test amount on https://www.yayaka.com/product/alipay-gift-card-taobao-payment-agent/ , Remember, Your alipay account is your Mobile Number such as singaporean 65-xxxxxx

There is no doubt that Alipay is more and more popular around the world. And more and more foreigner people would like to buy on Taobao with Alipay if possible because they can buy a very cheap Goods on Taobao.
I know there are many tutorial online say before you verify Alipay account, You must have a Chinese Phone Number, Passport, China Bank Card.
