(WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW)

1. Wechat Pay (MY) can only be linked with local issued debit cards
2. Wechat Pay Malaysia Wallet and China Wallet operate separately, so they're both totally different wallets
3. This thread is about Malaysia Wallet, not China Wallet.

I don't know any insider lol, but at least that's what the some news source claimed it to be. Actually, Wechat Wallet is already available for our region, but it's still in testing stage. Fingers crossed for the local launch.

If approved, users in Malaysia will be able to link their local bank accounts to WeChat Pay and pay for goods and services in ringgit.

Does this mean it will support more local banks like cimb?
Or do I just need to sign up for Hong Leong bank?

Most likely more banks will support the service soon, and HLB only got it's approval for the service, but the service itself is still not officially launched yet.

So you shouldn't do anything yet until it officially launches here.

I see, can we also link our local bank to alipay as well once this service is officially lunched?

Alipay and Wechat Pay are totally different services, and from different companies.

Alipay is already available here but only catering to Chinese tourists, the local version will be a collaboration with Touch N Go which also will be launching soon. Don't even bother to try linking to their app, I tried last year and it didn't work.

Yes, that's what we heard... There's no MY wallet at the moment... I thought you have some insider news and that's the reason you're opening a thread about WeChat Pay MY.

The topic is gonna be opened sooner or later anyways, so might as well do it now first, and currently there's no discussion threads about mobile wallets here as well as we already have plenty of them that's established by local firms.

The MY wallet option was only available for certain period of time, that's how you join the testing stage which is already unavailable to join now.

The current QR based wallets available on the market are "half baked" ecosystem... hopefully WeChat Pay / AliPay (Or is it the new Lazada Wallet) will be able to fix this...

One of the main reason it's hard to be accepted by hawker center / Morning market is due to tax issue...

As you know.. All transactions will be revealed once they accept e-payment

Would hold on until it launches here if I were you, no point of wasting money for verification and then waste again for topup using rate conversion.

You sure can link HLB with the wallet? I have HLB and I tried to link before, but it's not supported in the list of banks.

What I saw was UOB and HSBC.

I can feel the pain lol, quite envious when I saw the locals there using Wechat Pay and Alipay to buy stuffs every time during my previous trip in Shanghai.

And to think of our TnG here just makes me wanna puke blood.

I also anticipate WeChat Pay in Ringgit a lot. Part of the reason is I prefer and use WeChat a lot in daily life hehe.

What I read is, when it is launched, we will have different wallet for different currency. So you get 1 CNY Wallet for CNY, 1 RM wallet for RM. Not sure if it will allow conversion though.

News saying that WeChat Pay in RM will be launched earlier this year. Originally everyone (well, OK, me especially, haha) was hoping that during CNY this year can use its Red Packet function, but until now still no news. Maybe will be launched this Raya? Hopefully..

Wechat pay credit is only available in China for now.

If you're using the China version and looking for topup, can do it from them...

There's a fellow LYN forummer here selling Wechat pay credit here

Also found this in a Wechat pay thread here

Ah, I understand now, basically those who have activated their China wallet before are now able to switch the region to Malaysia now.

Those who never activated it before will have to wait for it to appear.

what do you see now in your interface? Can you even access your China wallet?

If not, just ask somebody to wechat you 0.01 yuan Hongbao, then your Wallet function will be activated

I never activated it before, I can access to it by searching it within the app though, but to activate the China wallet, I gotta link a card issued in China and type in the ID which is also only available for people from China.

I heard that it was actually easy to activate the China wallet few years back, and they implemented a stricter rule which made it only available to register for the mainland Chinese people since dunno when.

I tried the hongbao think before, it didn't work, still required for mainland Chinese ID.

I never activated it before, I can access to it by searching it within the app though, but to activate the China wallet, I gotta link a card issued in China and type in the ID which is also only available for people from China.

I heard that it was actually easy to activate the China wallet few years back, and they implemented a stricter rule which made it only available to register for the mainland Chinese people since dunno when.

I tried the hongbao think before, it didn't work, still required for mainland Chinese ID.

I linked my China Wallet using my Credit card. It worked. I did that last year.

You serious? The wallet option still haven't appear on mine yet.

What's your Wechat version btw? 6.6.7?
Same here, probably they're rolling it out batch by batch, just like how phone brands roll out their Android updates.

Yes version 6.6.7, I even submitted my identity verification by upload my IC, need to wait 24 hours for verification to be done.

Entering card info is just to link your debit card to the WeChat Wallet.
Submitting the identity info is another thing. It protects your money from being misused by somebody (by transferring the money into their account). You can find this by following these steps: wallet > tap on the 3 dots on the top right corner > payment management > identity verification

Quick update here, alright here's the thing that happened...

On the first try, this was the interface

Attached Image

After that I tried to log out and re-login again cuz I felt that maybe I need to do this to refresh something, and it froze with a black screen for like few minutes and after that I got the new interface, looks like this is the legit one, now I gotta enter my card info again. biggrin.gif

Wondering if it also enables us to make payment which straight deducts from the bank account.

Btw, I'm waiting for the SMS code for verification, 3 times already and no SMS code received. Damn.

In the Wallet, try looking for the four square thing or check three dots to see if there's any possible option to change the region.

Otherwise, you'll have to wait for a bit.

No you can't. Taobao needs AliPay, they are under the same company. WeChat Pay is the competitor for AliPay, so Taobao will not be allowed to use competitor product on their platform.

I also cannot have Malaysia wallet, I already have China wallet which I do have a couple of transactions over there earlier. Logged out and logged in doesn't help. laugh.gif

According to the popup page in WeChat, the money in our WeChat Wallet can be transferred back to bank account. The scenario is, if somehow some bad guy got out phone and somehow know our password, so he can easily transfer the money to his bank account. If we perform the personal info verification step, then the wallet money can only be transferred back to our own account, and not any other account. It's security purposes la.

Problem is that there's no hongbao option for newly activated users. However, I did see that during the identity verification process, there's the "red packet" option in "Use of Funds". So, I suppose it will be available soon for Malaysia Wallet.

Btw, are you using PC or phone? Maybe I can guide you on how to post images here if you're interested.

Unfortunately no, at least for the time being. China and Malaysia Wallet operate separately as for now.

BigPay is a totally different payment system as it uses Mastercard and it's a prepaid card.

One technique is that, you can ask your friend to send you a Hongbao, once the Hongbao appears at your end and you click on it, the Hongbao function will appear in your WeChat.

Thanks, but it seems that there is no "File Attachment" option in my browser. Dont know why. I have searched thoroughly

By the way, just wanna share that if you still cannot get the SMS reply, try go to the 3 dots > FAQ > Account and Security > overview > "Why cant my friends see the WeChat Pay MY Wallet". Over there you can scan the official Account of WeChat Pay Malaysia, and tell them your problem

Mine is always in Kuala Lumpur but doesn't help. David83 tied his mobile no. to WeChat account but cannot switch as well, so I don't think and hope that doesn't play a role. I'm not a fan of tying mobile no. to my WeChat.

I actually registered my WeChat account when I was in China 5 years ago, I hope that doesn't affect. laugh.gif

For those able to switch to WeChat Pay Malaysia, may I know if you have tied your account with your mobile no.?

I don't tie to any mobile no., not sure if that affects.

oh, sorry about that. I copy and paste here:

Why can’t my friend see the WeChat Pay MY Wallet?
The WeChat Pay MY Wallet is available in WeChat 6.3.13 or above. Please tell your friend to update WeChat to the latest version.
In addition, as required by Bank Negara Malaysia, the WeChat Pay MY Wallet is only available to WeChat users who registered with a Malaysian mobile number or those resident in Malaysia at the time of registration. If your friend has previously used the Weixin Wallet in China, he or she can try switching the Wallet region by tapping "Me" -> "Wallet" -> "..." (in the top right corner) -> "Switch Wallet Region", and selecting Malaysia.
If your friend has done the above but still fails to see the WeChat Pay MY Wallet, please ask him or her to follow the WeChat Pay MY Official Account and select “Support" -> "Enable Wallet" to report the problem to us. Our customer service team will respond within two business days. You canTap and hold the following picture, then select "Follow" to follow the Official Account.

I also enjoy using Wechat more and more now. There are lots of wonderful features inside, and bringing more and more convenience to my life. There are lots of people around me who still do not favour it, partly because they are very used to Whatsapp, and partly they do not know what WeChat got to offer. Everyone has the freedom to choose, but I still choose WeChat, haha. Awaiting the whole-page scan translation function to be avaiblabe in Android.

Unfortunately no, at least for the time being. China and Malaysia Wallet operate separately as for now.

BigPay is a totally different payment system as it uses Mastercard and it's a prepaid card.

Oops, then the usage will be very low at this moment.. no point having a wallet which can’t be use nationwide..

Btw, those who can use MY wallet, r u guys using android phone? Coz my friends who used android can link to MY wallet, but those who using iOS phone can’t link..

iOS wechat latest version is only 6.6.7, but the FAQ shown need to be 6.6.13 and above? It seem the version is so much different

I tried both Android and iOS (iPad) not able to.

It's 6.3.13 not 6.6.13. sweat.gif

I already submitted via Support but didn't submit my I.C., just a screenshot of my Wallet page to show that it's displaying China wallet and the Yuan currency sign. smile.gif

Usage will definitely be low at the moment because Tencent themselves still haven't made an official announcement of the launch here yet, so the awareness is still low. However, you'll be surprised to know that the anticipation for it is actually quite high in our country, pretty sure many are envious about the cashless experience in China, and now it's here, give it some time to grow. So far local e wallet apps suck, basically not worth giving attention to, Boost and Favepay is acceptable but it's far from being decent. If Wechat Pay suffers the same fate as the local ones, which I doubt it will, then we would have to use cash for probably the next few decades lol.

Btw, I'm on Android, I don't think it matters though, I've heard some can activate their Wallet on iOS and some couldn't on Android.

I think that the issue of whether wallet is shown or not is account related and not app or phone related. I managed to get the wallet activated by logging out and logging back in. My friend tried many times and it's still not showing. Updating wechat to version 6.6.7 doesn't give any difference. Then I tried to log in my account on my friend's phone, and I could see the wallet. So I guess it is not the problem of the app but the account.

Unlikely. China wallets are very independent based. Same goes to AliPay, it's only for them while the rest of the population in the world uses international version. laugh.gif

You need a China bank card to activate RMB wallet.

Actually this regulation only started few months ago, my friend still can get RMB wallet when he registered last year, using local credit card.

Top up still has to rely on others to transfer money in, since local cc cant be used for payment.

Agreed. Which is also why I was asking fruitie because she could add BigPay in China Wallet.

It's better to post here.
As above. It seems now no longer able to do it but if can add since last time then it can continue adding. It serves no purpose because we can't use it to do anything.

I am anticipating the face-to-face money transfer function, which is not limited to transfer between 2 users who have each other in their WeChat contact list. A useful scenario would be for Grab drivers, in which customers can WeChat Pay them, without needing the driver and customer to add each other as friends in their contact list before they can perform the transfer.

No charges to transfer back to bank account for cash withdrawal?

If there is the case, I can use BigPay to topup wechat pay money, then transfer back to bank account for cash withdrawal.

Indirectly, I can withdraw credit card money to pay any installments like car loan and housing loan. Earn extra credit card points or cash rebate.

There is so many ewallet payment systems launched for since last year. However I really didn't notice any of these gain any traction support from retailers. Hope Wechat pay could gain more support from retailers.

So far the only one that's progressing the most is Boost, but it's still far from being a proper e wallet solution. One thing in common for local e wallet apps, they only know how to launch their app but don't make it work, the purpose of e wallet is to replace our physical wallet, providing us a convenient way of making payments. I've used the local ones before, they're really shit, there are 3 common things that will happen...

1. Merchant doesn't support the e wallet you're using
2. Merchant is hesitant to let you use it
3. Merchant doesn't support any e wallet at all

We have like more than 10 local e wallet apps running here, so are they expecting people to install 10 e wallet apps and manage the 10 of them?

They only know how to flood the market with their app instead of improving it. Take a look at China, they only have 2 major e wallet apps and people there use it everyday, and it's supported like everywhere.

I hope Wechat can change it, since they have the experience and the budget.

Agree. “Hundreds” of the mobile payment app in Malaysia. Only can see Fave and Boost working to expand their network. KiplyPay, BigPay, TnG, MaybankQR can close their service actually.

Fave doesn't seem bad either, and since they're on some partnership with Boost, I wonder why they don't merge into one service? Surely bigger coverage will lead to bigger community. I have yet to uninstall Boost, since they're from the locals and quite progressive I'm giving them a chance, so hope they can do something before Wechat Pay takes off here.

BigPay is an entirely different system actually, it's a prepaid card that uses the app to track your transactions of what you buy. Other ones like KiplePay, TnG, MaybankQR, vCash, One2Pay, Mcash, you name it...they should just close down really.

Fave will charge very high merchant fees, very hard to penetrate merchant side, but do give cash back to consumer

Seems like you're still on China Wallet, try logout and re-login, you might see a 'Wallet' appear in your 'Me' section.

If nothing changes, wait for their official launch on 11th June.

Wechat pay is not available here. China tourists can use only Alipay here in Malaysia. I have not seen any wechat pay here, have you?

Seems like you're still on China Wallet, try logout and re-login, you might see a 'Wallet' appear in your 'Me' section.

If nothing changes, wait for their official launch on 11th June.
