Anyone using Taobao (Alipay)?

Postby hsm » Mon Jan 20, 2014 7:16 pm

Hi

I am having problem logging into the Alipay account to pay for my taobao stuff.. they suddenly 'added' the security feature and i need to change my password.

However the stupid thing is i can't even login to change my password. In order to 'reset', i must upload my ID / passport photo to them..

I'm hesitant to do that.. dunno if they will misuse the information.

Anyone does that?
Need some advise.. i tried the online chat with the Alipay staff.. they cannot do anything!! :rant:

Anyone has advice?

Thanks

maybe you can try switching to Amazon?
Amazon don't need ID/passport photo. Also, there is free shipping to Singapore, just added recently.

How do you know an item is eligible for the global saver shipping without having to wait until you wanna check out then know?

It's rather annoying to check out after spending time choosing items then realized cannot get the free shipping. I attempted a few ways and give up.

hsm:

were your credit card details with Alipay before? Are u using DBS/POSB credit card to pay?

Or using 快捷支付/网银支付/托人代付?These will need extra security layers like passport scan so int'l buyers (esp those in Africa) don't run away w/o paying. Credit card won't hv this prob, cos security checks already done by the issuing bank.

DBS credit is the easiest and most direct way to buy taobao stuffs. But u need to check if seller is "credit card-enabled" or not. Got different buying limits. See link.
