To open a WeChat official account that can be accessed by users in China, you will need to either have a Chinese ID and a business that is registered in China, or to partner with someone else who does.
International WeChat accounts not registered in China can only be accessed by users based outside of China.
A ‘verified’ WeChat account also provides more functionality, such as enabling of the WeChat payment system. Verified accounts are only available to China-registered businesses.
How safe are WeChat accounts?
Message encryption can be enabled on WeChat accounts, to ensure greater cyber security. However, it’s important to be aware of censorship and other regulations in China.
WeChat pay also comes with several layers of security to improve online protection in China. These include passwords, passcodes, and account freezing.
