  1. Recently, I get a lot of questions about Chinese tools like Weibo Ads, WeChat Ads, Icons V on Baidu, Qihoo 360, etc. so I decided to “treat” them as little blog posts. I start with WeChat Ads.

    There are 4 steps to open an Ads account on the No. 1 mobile application in China:

    Have an official WeChat account (and contrary to popular belief, foreign companies can have an official WeChat account! I’m French, and I have one)
    Gather these elements: – company name
    – company registration number

    – identification number of the administrator’s identity card, passport or driving license

    From there, you should have a user number called 服务 号 in Chinese

    Opening the WeChat Ads account next costs 99 dollars (so provide a means of payment)
    Remember to have your last three months of mobile and landline bills (requested as proof)
    You must wait 2 to 3 days for validation of the account by Tencent (group of which WeChat is a part)
    Identity card number, mobile and fixed lines, invoices, company registration, etc. that’s a lot of administrative documents to provide, but it is necessary if we want to get to the end of the process.
