Top 7 Misunderstandings About WeChat

  1. WeChat Pay is only used in China. Truth: WeChat Pay is now available in 15 countries and regions for payments in 12 currencies.
  2. WeChat Wallet can only be opened and used in China. Truth: Anyone can enable WeChat Wallet, even if they don't a bank account opened in China. How?  Just link your WeChat to your Visa or MasterCard and complete the authentication process
  3. I need to know Chinese to use WeChat. Truth: WeChat has a translation function that can translate 21 languages, so you don't need to know Chinese to use WeChat
  4. WeChat is not secure as the China government can spy on us. Truth: China government doesn't need to spy on Wechat users because Wechat has it own internal audit process that ensures that no WeChat users use WeChat to engage in non-government-approved activities, like HK Independence
  5. WeChat is just a fad and may not last, just like Viber.  Truth: WeChat is not a fad as its user base has been growing faster than WhatsApp and Facebook
  6. WeChat is less friendly as it does not allow us to add people that we don't know.  Truth: WeChat has a function called 'Add Friends Nearby", so you can simply add people that you don't know
  7. Using Wechat will open me to many strange friends and will make me exposed to undesirable activities. Truth: No one can add you on Wechat without your concurrence. In other words, you will not be opened or exposed to undesirable friends, AS LONG AS YOU DON'T ACCEPT THEM.

Most WeChat courses in Singapore are done by China people and they teach in Chinese. Some charge $1,500 for a half day course, while others charge $750 for a one-day course. They are good courses, just that they are taught in Chinese, and most Singaporeans prefer English. We at Asia Coaching Training teach in English and we charge less than a hundred.
