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'm not 100% sure but I read that asking locals (or whoever that has a full fledged working eWallet) to transfer you 红包 doesn't work for cashless point of sales.

Need more people to advise.

Red packet cannot, but transfer can.
anyway, try on your wechat app to set up wallet. Tap Discover from the bottom menu, and search wallet, open my wallet, add card.

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.

If transfer works for you then it is good for you. It does not work for me anyway.

On the other hand if you have a mainland China bank card to link to, then everything will work.

Yes. I have done that.

In fact both red packet and transfer worked until July 2019 for me. But then it stopped working in August 2019 once the system prompted me to add a mainland China bank card.

May be it could do to the different version of Wechat. you may need to reverify.
Try to do the following;
under Wallet, select Money, and on the new window, select receive money, and see whether you can select Passport for verification.

Been there, done that.

Anyway, no need to convince me. If you looked back a few pages, I was giving suggestions like this to others last year and earlier this year.

But then I know that Tencent is tightening the control and one by one the tricks will stop working.

If your wechat is verified with identity (include Singapore passport and bank CC), you should at least able to receive money on Windows PC version wechat.

Last night, I received RMB100 top-up in my wallet using WeChat PC version. But my friend in China highlighted that I still cannot make transaction if my account is not verified. And you will need a china-based bank card to do verification. I’m heading to China in November.
