    Hello,
    I'm not from china but I need to use Alipay to pay a chinese service provider and he doesn't accept any other payment provider besides Alipay.

    Now I downloaded the AliPay App but I didn't find any option to make a payment using my credit card.
    It always asks for a bank card and when I try to enter my cc info it says the card is not supported.

    Is it possible to pay via cc using Alipay or does this always require a chinese bank account?

    Yes you can pay via your cc:
    https://cshall.alipay.com/lab/help_detail.htm?help_id=250041
    What service? It's can't be a virtual product from taobao.
    Also you'll be charged 3% additional fee/expenditure.

    they mean chinese debit card. the number of digits is different from western visa/mc/etc so it will error
    visit some third tier village and you will be able to get away with opening on a tourist visa. shanghai/beijing/etc have become a bit stricter, asking for work permits/tax receipts and such. alternatively you can buy stolen ones but you would need to speak chinese. the sellers usually don't know english.
    this option simply cannot be relied on. a lot of people's cards are outright declined. i couldn't get it to work with any foreign card and i read/write chinese. works fine with domestic chinese visas though

    They should enable paypal on their site. Apply for alipay account and verify it is not easy for the foreigners.
