I agree it is good to use cashless payment in China. Luckily my main wechat account is still working for wechat pay even though it is not linked to a mainland China bank card. But I am not so sure how long it will continue to work.

Cash is still okay despite the hassle. Anyway Wechat Pay and Alipay are getting more stringent so most of the people here will not get them working. So no choice has to use cash. Frequent travellers can try the dual currency bank card from ICBC and BOC since you can deposit RMB here in Singapore and get RMB cash from ATM in China.

Not sure if 3rd party top up service for Wechat Pay and Alipay are still working for people without a mainland China bank card.
