I see. It may be true that Tencent again tightens the rules for Wechat pay. This workaround worked for me in December 2018.

You may want to try 3rd party service to see if they work for you.

Edit to add: just tried this with my testing wechat account which can not receive ang bao but used to be able to receive money through QR code, the same message poped up. So indeed Wechat plugs the loophole and this workaround no longer works.

On the other hand my main wechat account which can receive ang bao still can receive money using QR code. So this rule seems to only apply to new accounts for now. YMMV.

Not hotel address, I used my friend's residential address and her spare phone SIM card no. lol. They don't verify anyway. Btw I was in Henan, maybe at small cities they are not so strict with the regulations.
is there a min sum to bank in when opening the account?

By right it is 1RMB. Still better to put something like RMB500.

Yup just maintain about 500 RMB inside.

Btw take note that many remittance services now can only remit funds to China accounts registered to mainland China IDs. Before last weekend BOC sg can still transfer to China accounts opened with passports. Apparently there was a new regulation in China few days ago. The ones below will not work:

- DBS China remit
- BOC sg RMB pre-settlement account
- Worldremit
- Transferwise
- Worldfirst

Xendpay still works for now.

Best solution is to get a china friend to borrow you their ID. You will use their ID for the wechat. But it has better to be someone reliable as well.

Either one should be okay if you can get anyone to work.

Personally I use only wechat pay because it works for me whereas Alipay does not work at all without linking to a mainland China bank card. On the other hand looks like Wechat is also tightening so in the end I may need to get a proper bank card from my relatives to set up Wechat pay if it stops working.

No solution for now. Unless you get a Chinese friend to lend you the ID card information or the bank card information. That friend has to trust you enough to do that.

If you have such friend or relative, you can probably ask him/her to set up a bank account and a Chinese SIM card with low monthly charge for you and pass you the bank card and sim card to you to manage the bank card by yourself. You can remit to that account from Singapore using S$ to top up that bank card when the balance goes low.
