Payment options in China

Chinese Yuan (RMB) is the official national currency in China. Major hotels and establishments accept payments by cash or international credit card.

People living in China make payments through two major digital payment apps, namely the WeChat Pay (微信支付) and Alipay (支付宝), for almost all purchases.

Foreigners can now download Alipay and WeChat Pay on both iOS and Android phones with their overseas phone number and link them with international debit or credit card to make payments such as transport, accommodation, shopping, dining at local eateries and restaurants, and entry passes to various places of interest.

We recommend that you download the Alipay and/or WeChat app and associate the app/s with your bank card prior to your trip to China.
