I- Wechat wallet linking bank card and buying VPN from ManyVPN as online payment:

WeChat (aka Weixin in Chinese) is a multipurpose social networking app similar to WhatsApp; among its various functions is a ‘Wallet’ setting that allows users to pay for a number of different items through their smart phone, including cinema tickets, taxis and group discount deals. This works even if the users only have debit or ATM cards.

Foreigners are just as welcome to use these functions as Chinese people, although they will need a Chinese bank card. Additionally, although the set-up process is in English (provided you downloaded the English-language version of WeChat), a reasonable grasp of Chinese is required for more complex functions.

Here’s how to link your bank card to your WeChat account; the screenshots are taken from the iPhone version, but the Android edition should be much the same.

 

1.Open WeChat.

2.Press the ‘Me’ button at the bottom of the screen, then tap the ‘Wallet’ option.

3.This is the main menu that you will use to access different options once your card has been set up. Press ‘Wallet’ again.

4.Select ‘Add a Card’.

5.Type in the number across the middle of your bank card; depending on the bank you are using, this may be somewhat longer than those found on many foreign banking cards. Once you’re done, tap ‘Next’.

6.Now type in your card information; it should be the same as the information you gave your bank when opening your account.

Your name should be the same as the full name printed on your passport (including middle names), however in practice it will be whatever the clerk at your local bank typed into their computer when they registered you on the system. Consequently, you may need to input it all in capitals, or all in lowercase, for it to register properly.

You could also try putting it in reverse order (surname, then first name, then middle names), try dropping your middle names, or try typing in your name without any spaces. If you have an apostrophe in your name you could try removing that, too. If none of these things work, go to your bank and double-check how they have inputted your name. It’s possible that the customer service advisor made a typo or other error – and don’t forget to take your passport!

Next, tap ‘ID type’ to select the identification you used to open your bank account – almost certainly your passport (it will be set to ‘ID Card’ as default). If ‘passport’ is not available then unfortunately your bank is not compatible with WeChat Wallet at the moment. Finally, type in the phone number you gave your bank and make sure the ‘Accept “User Agreement”‘ box is ticked. On older iPhones, you will have to scroll down to get to the ‘Next’ button.

7.You will then be brought to the following screen. But don’t worry about doing anything yet, because…

8….WeChat will then send a message to your phone with an authorization code (see image below). This will only work if you give the phone number that your bank has on file; if you put in another number you will get an error message. If you no longer have access to the number that you originally gave to your bank, you will need to change it before you can continue with the WeChat process. If you gave the correct number but still didn’t get a code, there is a link at the bottom of the ‘Verify Mobile’ page (scroll down to find it on older iPhones) that will resend it.

9.Now you need to add a little security in case your phone is stolen or lost. Type in a six-digit passcode that you can easily remember.

different from your PIN code (ATM) password would be more secure

10.Press ‘Next’ (you may need to scroll down to get to that button), and your card will be added to your wallet.

II- Alipay linking bank card and buying VPN from ManyVPN as online payment:

YES, FOREIGNERS CAN USE ALIPAY -- THIS IS HOW

 

The easiest way to order VPN from ManyVPN's website and you can also order McDonald's delivery. And transfer money and everything else same as Wechat wallet adding with Taobao shopping.

Nov, 2015: Alipay recently updated their app with an English language version. It's pretty straightforward and makes linking a bank account a quick and easy process. But there are still some parts of the app haven't been fully translated yet. Here's a quick guide to connect your bank card to the app.

First, download the latest version (needs to be 9.2 or higher) from an app market or through Alipay's website. If your phone's language setting is English, the app will run in English. Sign up for an account with your phone number. Once you've logged in, hit "Me" on the bottom right corner. 

Alipay process same as the preview Wechat payment

Tap "Bank Card Add" and you'll be prompted to enter in your bank card number. The next screen asks for your name, ID, and phone number as it appears on your bank account. This is the tricky part. If you have problems, that means something wasn't written correctly when you registered your bank account. 

If you are not a Chinese citizen, tap "Select ID Type". Strangely, this (crucial) part of the app hasn't been translated to English. The options are the following:

(1) Chinese Identity Card
(2) Passport
(3) Entry-exit Pass For Hongkong And Macau Citizens
(4) Entry-exit Pass For Taiwan Citizens

Select the second option if you are a passport holder. Type in your passport number and hit next. The final process is the verification of your bank's phone number. It doesn't have to be the phone number you are using the Alipay app on, but you'll need to type in the verification code sent to the number registered with your bank account. Once you do, the process will complete and you'll have a linked bank card that you can make purchases with at places like Taobao.
