We are delighted to announce that our integration with WeChat Pay via Ksher, is now live.
WeChat is China’s super app. With over 1 billion active users, it is currently the most popular smart phone app in China.
On the surface it works like a hybrid of Facebook and WhatsApp, allowing users to message each other. But it has grown into a market-leading platform that connects people, services and businesses, not just in China but around the world.
What is WeChat Pay?
A feature of WeChat, WeChat Pay allows users to pay for products and services via the app on their smart phone, in the same way as Apple Pay.
Why is this of interest to the UK market?
More and more people choose to travel from China to study, live and work in the UK. Being able to use their WeChat Pay app to buy products and services in the UK, means they don’t have to carry as much cash and gives them access to spot exchange rates.
Which UK businesses would WeChat Pay appeal to?
At Fidelity Systems, we work across the education, student union and tourist attraction markets, as well as others. But it’s these sectors we feel could benefit most from offering WeChat Pay as an additional payment method.
