No need to worry about that now. You will not be able to carry out any transaction with the SG credit card anyway.

Check you can top up your wechat wallet or not first as the first step. You can try that by receiving Ang Bao from your friends with working wechat wallet.

Mine used to work I had linked my dbs card and still have a balance. I topped up by getting friend's to send red packets. As of today it says must link mainland bank card. I can still send money that is in there out. So problematic

The procedure is design to prevent money laundering. In any case, the WeChat wallet function is catered for mainly Chinese users.

Same same. ICBC or BOC cards issued in Singapore are not useful.

Yes they start the process to tighten the rules from February to prevent money laundering and fund exiting from mainland China. I think it may well be a matter of time that my wechat wallet will suffer the same fate as well.

Anyway, you can still spend the remaining amount.

I have RMB2500 in my wechat wallet and it will last a while as I only pay for apps and send ang bao occasionally.

Same fate. Cannot received anymore funds through transfer or Hong bao already. Sad.

Yes it is the same. You need a mainland China bank card.

In fact there was no loop holes in Alipay, unlike WeChat. But now WeChat plugs the holes.

So if Iím going to Shanghai for 8 days, what should I be using? Wechat Pay?

Or is any contactless payment ok too? E.g Youtrip or any contactless credit card

If you have WeChat pay, then you can use it.

If not, Credit card for hotel or other places which accept that, Cash for places which do not. Exchange enough cash in Singapore because the rate in China is lower.

Is alipay able to send and receive money ? Or only wechat blocked it ?
