WeChat Shops REFUSE Foreign Applicants

We’ve been trying to create a WeChat shop to support Expat Rights. We created our shop, uploaded our logo, stocked some merch.  When we went to link our bank card so we could accept payment, there was an option for a passport number instead of just Chinese ID card.  YES!

However, Beijing seems to be becoming less and less foreign friendly due to increased media focus on “bad foreign behavior”.    So, it seems like in […]
