the rate sibei lousy sio, 4.2+ Go carousell top up got rate 4.8+

Carousell got few top up providers but no sure whether can be trusted. For what I think just to top up for a small amount to test whether the "wallet" is working so I do not care about the exchange rate.

As compare to those individual top up service provider listed on Carousell, at least this one was reported on news and they promised full refund if in the event the top up can not get thru.

I got a problem.. got someone to send me quite a lot of rmb. But when I use more than 1k RMB, they said my account needs to be verified before any further purchase can be done.

Anyone has any idea how to go about solving it? Now my money is stucked inside...

You can have WeChat wallet but you need to have a valid china debit or credit card linked to receive any transfer or hong Bao

Last year it was still possible to add a singapore credit card until recently or this year must use china credit card le

U can also try this method: if you have a trusted Chinese friend in sg, you use his debit card to link to your current wechat account. Once you can start to use your money, transfer the money to elsewhere.

The big 4: BOC, ICBC, China Construction Bank and Agricultural Bank of China.

They just need you to fill up the Singapore income tax number, no document needed.

Hi Guys

Need help!!
I asked my friend to send me a red packet to enable my wechat wallet.
I went carousell and ask someone to top up my account which was done.

I tried to transfer my money in my wechat wallet to a China seller for my stuff but i cannot transfer as wechat say i need "real name verification". I have added my UOB and POSB credit card.. all cannot. Also have updated my app.

Now I have money in wechat that I cannot spend not withdraw.
How??

Thanks in advance

You can't pay through wechat and alipay till you had done the verification process (china no + china credit card). Your money will still remain at your wechat account.

You will need someone to pay on your behalf, can try wolong or others Alipay service...

Anyway, Non-verified account only can spend 1k at max.. if scared no money sign up union pay credit card. A lot of places don't accept masters or visa.

Now my concern is how am I going to withdraw my money from Wechat Wallet? The money is just sitting in there.

The only way to withdraw is to proceed for the verification with China bank account + local phone no. The confusing part is most of us thought after the local Sing local credit card added up (in this part, we can only proceed to purchase good at Taobao via Alipay, charge through our local credit card),
we are able to top up and transfer via Alipay and Wechat Ang Pow pay, but we will still need to proceed with the verification on China bank account + china local phone no.

If your amount is not that huge, just park it there until you had done on the second part.

Went to ICBC, China conctruction these 2 cannot open bank account for foreigners



Ya cannot..

You have to go and try out different branches. Some branches don't do for you as they never open an account for foreigner before so they will tell you cannot. I have this problem too.

U got let your friend register their card in your wechat? It can work also. Also, I tried using Citibank credit card. It work for me.
