Just back from China today and managed to open ICBC bank account and link my wechat wallet & alipay.
Tried CMB first but they refused and said need local ID to open so walked to ICBC next door and straightaway open the bank account and I just provided hotel address but definitely need local sim.
Hi, did you buy a prepaid SIM card or sign up a plan? How much did you pay for the SIM card? I am going China soon and wish to open an account too

Strange. I managed to open an account with CMB in Shenzhen some time back. The bank staff even told me that I could just use any hotel address nearby, since I was only on a day trip from Hong kong.

Local number is definitely required.

Comfort is going to add Wechat payment to their cabs. Wonder how are they going to charge when its in different currency. Will there be a conversion charge for using that as well...

1. Min amount depends on the bank. China Merchant Bank has a RMB 1K min, below which there is a RMB 10 per month charge.

2. Once a real-time debit arrangement is made between the bank account/card and Alipay, it is instant at the click of a button on the Alipay app or web page In fact, when using Alipay to make payments, there is no need to top-up the wallet first if you set up direct debit.

3. For people without a PRC ID card, can only transfer foreign currency to the PRC bank account.

you cant send and recieve money on wechat without id verification.

I have setup bank acs in china whenever i go to china . but lost the 2 cards and acc no. it has been like 5 yrs , will try to reinstate the account when in china. when ever you visit china , try to register and verify your youku , alipay, wechat pay , your ah tiong music app on hp , cos once you back in SG you cant do anything.

you need open bank account china, 200RMB can open with ATM card liao . before open you need buy a sim card china and find a residential address for application/ the residential address can alibaba one. they even give me a dongle , which i lost everything . their internet banking is very confusing, more confusing then alipay so you can skip that out. just cash in a min amount for more functions in app when u b SG can liao/

Tried and can link to OCBC CARD,no additional verifications, able to receive Hongbao now.
I've Bank Of China Account with a local China prepaid SIM Card.

A friend in SG was able to add OCBC credit card at WeChat Wallet verification.
So he was able to receive WeChat AngBao now.

Do try with your current Singapore Debit/Credit Card.
But you need someone to first send you an AngBao.
Then add in the card.

By Default, Singapore's WeChat do not see WeChat Wallet.
