It works. I used it in Hangzhou before for shops that accept union pay. Just need to let them scan the QR code in the netspay app.

when did you use it? China changes their rules & regulations often. previously can transfer $ to wechat wallet now can't.

Great if netspay works, I dont mind paying the transaction fee for small purchases so long as it is convenient.

Since last year already can use. But only big stores accept union pay. Those small shops usually don't. So have to still fall back on cash.

Few questions if anyone can contribute.

NETSPay can tie to savings accounts I tried setting up. Seems like I can only add my filed Visa.

Anyway if must be big stores in China, then might as well use visa/master ?

Any advantages with NETSPay ?

use NETS will incure currency convertion fees, and
it is not widely accepted.
top up wechat wallet is a better choice.

really wish that Alipay/Wechat can allow foreigners to utilize the cashless payment modes...it's really such a hassle to transact in cash when the merchants clearly don't favour that.

Foreigners can have Wechat Pay, just need put money in, since foreigners do not have China bank Acc, need to ask someone transfer in.

I believe it will not work if you are referring to ask your friends with proper wechat/Alipay wallet to send you red packets or transfer money to you.

On the other hand, there are various online platforms which seem to be still working. So there must be some ways to transfer money in. I have not tried these online platforms though since I still have enough money in my wechat wallet -- I used wechat wallet balance to pay for QQ Music VIP and Youku VIP recently.
