Try Alipay Tour Pass, scroll up for more info. Wechat Wallet is not yet working.

Try the following inside Alipay App after you added your Singapore bank card.

Ok. I managed to find it.
At home screen of app, search TourPass.
Click on TourPass.
After keying particulars, you will have a “virtual” bank of shanghai pre-paid card that allows you to make payment via QR code and scan-to-pay.

You can pay Street vendors and apps but not inside Taobao app.

It is like this for new sign-up. Anyway you can not top up now even if you activate the Wallet option (say by asking your friend to send you a red packet and then you add a Singapore credit card, you will most likely see the wallet, but you will not be able to receive the red packet and the money will return to your friend).

Use Alipay better now. Scroll up a few posts for more info.

Or go to the Alipay thread.

Yes but only for limited use case like 12306, CTrip, Jingdong and Didi, not for payment like apps (eg QQ Music) or street vendor. Scroll back a few posts for more details.

Good news is WeChat has activated foreign credit card payment.
Managed to pay起点读书 just now using Youtrip after submitted my documents.

Glad to know that. I still use my balance (about RMB2600 left) to pay for apps and top up my China Mobile SIM card (to register for some apps and receive SMS OTP). Most recently I paid RMB180 for QQ Music VIP (buy one year to get one more year free).

This must be a new development, because it is still reported last Friday that foreigners could not pay through WeChat Pay, only Alipay could work.

BTW, which documents do you submit for 实名认证? Previously no need to submit Passport, only need to add a Singapore credit card. Now it seems to me they need the passport.

Side topic: I use 微信读书and no need to pay as they give you up to 10 书币 for 5 hours of reading and then you can use that to pay for more books.

Thanks for the info.

Yes you are right that 10书币 is roughly good for about 66 short chapters for 微信读书. But I have managed to read quite a few long books without paying for the past few years. But 起点 is also well-known.

WeChat nope. Alipay is allowing foreigners to use it finally. See above few threads.

Few month ago I did the following and managed receive Money.

Open Wechat, tap Discover on the bottom, search Wallet, open my wallet, select Money, select receive money, this will bring you to the ID verification process, select passport select Singapore......

after valification, your wechat now got Wallet function. you can add VISA card to it.

to receive money, log on to Wechat on Desktop computer, ask someone send money to you.

you may or may not succeful.
good luck .

Unfortunately that happens very often for new sign-up now. It happened to me recently as well for one new account I created.

They are very aggressive now in this aspect. I have no idea how they determin suspicious activity when one just created the account and almost did nothing.

I think if you create the account and then immediately verify your account by adding the credit and/or passport info, this will not happen.
