All Visa/Master cards should be okay. I am using a OCBC MasterCard myself.

The article has detailed instructions. Try it.

How can foreigners use WeChat Pay?

Currently, the second type of WeChat Pay only supports consumption, and cannot be used for general transfer and sending red envelopes. However, it can be used for making payments to store owners through the static barcode posted in the stores (note: not street vendors, rather those WeChat Partners listed in the wechat app).

WeChat Pay currently only supports overseas credit cards. You need to verify the card number, expiration date, CVN2, and American and Canadian users need to verify the billing address while binding. Then you will receive a SMS verification code on the phone number you just filled in. After verification, you need to create a 6-digit payment password before you can use the services.
I just came across this thread. So going by this news, can I assume that once my Citibank visa has been verified, I can immediately use WeChat to pay if I go to China next week?

Apologies for this newbie question but the last time I was in CN was 5+ years back & cash & credit cards were still widely accepted then.
