I have been Living in Chengdu since 2014 and everything goes well except there is no way for a foreigner to Top up WeChat wallet and Alipay account. You know, WeChat wallet and Alipay are both most popular payment method in China no matter you go shopping online or offline.
And taobao is the most popular online platform for buying products. There are so many products with good quality but cheap. I love it so much. As to WeChat wallet, You will find all seller accept WeChat payment around every corner.
Then my Friend Jania who is from USA, found a website and Recommend it to me. It is www.yayaka.com . Yayaka helps foreigners to exchange money from PayPal to WeChat wallet or Alipay. They will send me red packet once we pay via PayPal or credit card. It helps a lot in my daily life. I always go out for a hotpot, drinking coffee and Take a taxi even a metro. WeChat wallet is the only thing I take when I go out.
Compared with other sellers, I think The price is acceptable, $16.99=¥100, We know paypal charge them 4.4%+$0.3. Certainly I hope I can get a better rate if possible.
