  • Why WeChat Pay feature not available for some users?

Currently, only users registered in China’s Mainland, Hong Kong SAR, South Africa, and Malaysia will see automatically display the WeChat Pay feature entry. If your account is registered in a location outside of these regions, you will not see the WeChat Pay feature entry unless you activate WeChat Pay.


  1. You can activate WeChat Pay (China’s Mainland Wallet) by accepting a Red Packet or transfer from another user, then following the instructions to complete real-name authentication within 24 hours and link a debit or credit card issued in Mainland China.
  2. China’s Mainland Wallet, Hong Kong Wallet, South Africa Wallet and Malaysia Wallet are independent of each other and cannot be combined.
  • How to activate WeChat Wallet *for those who have WeChat Pay features:

Steps 1: find the WeChat Wallet “Cards” section

Go to WeChat and click on Me/Wallet/Cards. This will take you to a section to add a Chinese bank card.

Step 2: Add a bank card

Now you can add a credit or debit card to link with your WeChat Wallet.

You will need a Chinese bank card, some countries would be able to use their own bank card issued by their home countries.

Step 3:  done! 

Now you have successfully linked your bank card with WeChat!

For example, in Malaysia, now we are able to add our bank card in WeChat pay without using a Chinese bank account which makes payments more convenient. If you still aren’t able to get this feature in your region, there are changes that are coming to the system but just have to wait. Next time, we will share more about WeChat pay.
