It is difficult now to set up a mainland China bank account unless you are working or studying in China.

My workaround is to get the help from a relative in China to set up a proper wechat pay account during my Dec 2019 short trip to China.

So technically it is his account and I am just using it. I am holding the SIM card and bank card as well. I just need to maintain the balance of the phone (RMB18 per month) and bank card (I can use remit service to top up when needed).

The workaround is not applicable to most of the people here...

I have 2 bank accounts that i set up back in 2013. Abc and construction. Abc already frozen cos of inactivity.

But the china number i used to open already long gone.
