@masaccio – this was introduced by FD on 28 June this year and they use the Mastercard rate with no fees for ATM withdrawals. Just used it in China a few times and it works perfectly, although cash use there is much less widespread than pre-covid.

Apologies @JDB for being hard of reading on that.

Last trip I made to China, the people I offered cash to in Shanghai looked at me liked I wanted to pay in gold-pressed latinum. At least we have Alipay and WeChat Pay now.

Travelling in Aug. I tried to link my card last week to WeChatApp and app specifically told me “no as I didn’t have a Chinese issued card”. So I cant link say Chase to Alipay or wechat?
