Learn Chinese in China

registering Alipay acct overseas

Recommended Posts

Forgive me if this is the wrong forum, couldn't find a better one.


I'm trying to open an Alipay account, so that I can collect payment for people I'm tutoring over the internet. I'm in the UK. I might also find it useful for buying books from Chinese publishers.


You can register with your mobile number or your email address. If I try my mobile, it just says it's wrong. I've tried various permutations of 44 (UK country code), 00, and my number.


If I try to use my email address it asks for my mobile number, and insists that it is a China mainland number.


Is there a way around this?
