    paying on taobao

    So I was finally able to select some items from taobao but now I am stuck at the payment stage. I tried to pay but alipay says that I need to have a bank account with a chinese bank so that I can link the account with alipay. And for that to happen, I would need an account with a chinese bank so other banks like shanghai commercial or hang seng arent accepted.

    What can I do about this?
    Is it possible to pay without using alipay?

    Thanks in advance!

    You can also set up your octopus to pay. I did that. It worked but took 24 hours to activate.

    This is an older thread but also had some useful info on paying. There was a really long and very useful thread a while back but I cannot find it, sorry.

    from my very limited Chinese, I think it says that our package has been dispatched and it can take up to 7 working days for it to arrive.
