    Easy question, I hope. A friend in China wants to send money to me in the USA via WeChat. When I looked at the WeChat instructions, it seemed to indicate that you need to register your WeChat Wallet ONLY with a Chinese bank. Is there any way around this?

    Can i transfer money from other country to China through we chat?

      I think you can only transfer money from wechat to wechat. As long as your recipient has wechat account, yes you can send him money anywhere. However, if you are looking moving money directly to the bank of your recipient, you better use Transferwise. it has lowest charges and fees. Plus, you can get free transfer for your first 500 Euro transfer. Try it now!

    I never though we can now send money through wechat. However, I am looking for something that can send money direct to the bank. So far, Transferwise is the best when it comes to sending money directly to the receiver’s bank. The charges and fees are really low. Its estimated arrival is 24hrs. But mine arrives within 15 minutes. You can also get free transfer fee for your first 500 Euro transfers. You better check out yourself now!
