Yes I am lucky that my main wechat pay account is still working and I can still receive 红包. But I know this may stop working any time since I do not have a mainland bank card.
Indeed it stopped working for me now even though it worked in June. They really tighten up the enforcement if you do not have a mainland bank card.

Anyway I still have RMB2900 balance in my wechat account and I can still use the balance.

Suspect very soon you can't even spend the money in your account... Better transfer out ASAP.

I have local bank card so not a problem.

I do not think that will happen any time soon. Anyway if that happens, I have relatives with mainland China bank card to help as the last resort.

WeChat can only cash out by xfer to China bank account.

When my WeChat is still active, I did try put the amount back into bank, but it didn't manage to work.

Now since my WeChat pay wont work, I've been using Alipay instead.

Another method is to xfer to people can get back as cash from them. Either in RMB or SGD lor.

Alot of users want to have RMB in alipay, for Taobao purchases.

Send back into your bank card tied to your WeChat account, with admin fee chargeable for amount exceeding RMB 1k.

There is a workaround solution to accept Wechat Pay money transfer.

I just top up and confirmed it to be working.

Get your friend/merchant to transfer money to your Wechat, download install Wechat for Windows and click accept.

I do not know how soon they will fix this bug but it will work for now.

Will not work for MAC, need Windows.

Ok I just found out that we can use Alipay in China linked to our Singapore credit cards. So no need the headaches associated with WeChat. This article shows how to do it:

http://www.smartshanghai.com/article...ay-this-is-how

Iíll test in Sípore 1st. If ok, then should work in China. Iíve already successfully added my Visa card to Alipay.
May I check if this still works?

Is there any way to set up alipay or wechat wallet by yourself if you are singaporean?

If not, can we register with chinese banks in sg such as BOC or ICBC and get a mainland chinese bank account for verification in alipay/wechat wallet?

You cannot open a mainland bank account at any Chinese bank in Singapore.
