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.
U can add any credit card but unable to do top up

No one mentioned TOP UP of WeChat Wallet using Non-China Credit/Debit Card....
You guys just thought it's so easy......

Like i've said, It's to RECEIVE WeChat Ang Bao.


Edit::

There'll be people in Singapore able to Send WeChat Ang Bao To You.
Then you pay in cash or transfer money to his Singapore Bank Account.

Just like Paypal users selling their credit in it.

I tried opening an acct in Shanghai in Mar 18. Was rejected by ICBC and 2 other Banks. The regulation now is u need to be working in China to do so.

I wasn't able to receive angpow to top up without a locally issued CC even though my wallet is open.

Using SG Wechat. Still trying to overcome the problem and yes, best to have a unionpay CC in China.

Yeah the bank staff took me the audits r strict now. Anyway it seems that if we download Wechat from Taiwan, HK, Macau or China it would allow foreign cards.

Will try it out soon.

You meant you are in Guangzhou and cannot open an account?

Maybe you can try more remote provinces. But if regulation changed, then all banks should be effective.
I couldnt even get a SIM card for tourist there, they need local address. I got my colleague to buy a SIM for me and now i pay a monthly subscription fee of RMB5 just to maintain.

Most major Airport in China have point-of-sales to get local prepaid card.
But it's not cheap, costing RMB 150 or somewhere there....
Didn't went over to ask them before....

Any tourist is able to get a Prepaid SIM from their Main Outlet (旗舰店) or Flagship Store. They are the only ones able to process Tourist's Passport.
