just to SIC with the bros here, Qoo10 got one user NPN doing wechat wallet top up at rate of 1sgd: 4.5rmb .(can use qoo10 vouchers, Exchange rate is favourable 5.2, if you know how to stack coupons and use the most ex voucher) Basically you pay, QR code gets sent to your email, you scan the code and it goes directly to your wallet. (my wallet is registered to my SG visa card only, no local card, no local china number linked to wechat)

very surprised the ang pao didnt get rejected. :X

\\\\NO LONGER RELEVANT VALID AS OF MARCH19\\\\\ (seller on qoo10 explicitly states you need china bank card linked. Not sure it will work for new wallet opening already sorry. Consider this avenue closed for now)
tomb likes this.

No guarantee but you can try the following to see if you can receive money using QR Code.
Me -- Wechat Pay -- Money -- Receive Money.

Try receive small amount first.

This has been in place for a while but YMMV.

My main wechat account can still receive and send ang bao, using it yesterday. But my other two recent wechat accounts can not, including one linked to mainland China SIM number.

I do not know of any workaround now.

As for the money 微信零钱 it can be used to pay for apps like QQ Music VIP and Tencent Video VIP or Youku VIP or things like that. You should be able to send Ang Bao to others as well.

It is true that the DBS card does not support payment.

But I completed the process of adding it anyway and once having done that, status of my account turned to (实名认证) thus I am able to receive / send out HongBao and make payments to vendors using the balance in my wallet.

If you can receive Hongbao 微信红包 or 转账, then you can get friend to transfer money to you as the easy method for top up. I myself use this method.

You can also go through 3rd party services to top up. I have no experiences with this method though.

No idea, you can compare with local service like this one.

http://www.zgspcjsc.com/wechat/templ...tml?v=20180521

S$10.35 for RMB50
S$20.65 for RMB100
S$30.95 for RMB150
S$41.25 for RMB200

At least this one has big supermarkets as the physical presence so should be relatively safe.

http://www.zgspcjsc.com/wechat/templ...tml?v=20180712

Edit to add: supposedly this type of services needs to be regulated, so be careful to deal with individuals offering such service for profit.

你的微信号绑定中国的银行卡了吗?

微信钱包充值目前只适合绑定中国的银行卡或者实名认证的微信用户才能领取哦,而且同一个微信号每天只能领10次


Don't have China credit card....
