The China Open is a Premier Mandatory tournament for WTA players which means it's one set below a Grand Slam. So the prize money for the women players at the 2016 China Open is really good. Not as good as the Grand Slam events but much better than almost all WTA events.

In addition to the prize money for each round also listed below is how much the prize money has been increased for each round in 2016 vs what it was last year. The money below is not cumulative. Players only earn the amounts shown for the last round they advance to.
