    A good question indeed. Given your current situation, it is highly recommended that you file for bankruptcy so that your debt would stop accumulating and your monthly repayments would be lower. After the making of the Bankruptcy order, your creditors cannot charge interest for the principal sum that you owe them and unlike before, your Official Assignee will decide a suitable amount of monthly contribution that you willhave to make after taking into account what you need for yourself and your family.

    Every transaction you complete using CardUp will incur a 2.6% transaction fee. This can actually add up over time, especially if you’re relying heavily on CardUp. That being said, if your card offers cash rebates or frequent flyer miles, you may easily be able to offset the transaction fee. CardUp works by being a middleman in your transactions. Instead of directly transferring funds from your account to a vendor, you pay CardUp via credit card. CardUp will then transfer the funds to your designated vendor. CardUp charges you a transaction fee for each payment made.

You start by composing a message to them and then add a “transfer” to them. When you click on the “transfer” button, you’ll be asked how much money you want to send to them. Enter an amount in RMB. You’ll then be asked to enter your password. Do that, and you’ll see a reddish-orange “transfer” icon appears.The recipient will see this in their WeChat app, and will then have to accept the transfer. Once they do, they will receive it.
