Why use WeChat Pay?

Connect with Chinese consumers and build loyalty like never before. WeChat extends itself to a variety of rich features and functionality for brands. WeChat verified Official Accounts are public accounts managed by brands, organisations, services and celebrities. Creating an Official Account for your brand will allow you to connect, engage and transact with your audience in a closed, one-to-one environment. Verified accounts protect your brand with name exclusivity.
Purchasers through WeChat Pay automatically follow merchants’ Official Accounts. Users like to share and promote your brand and they purchase throughout their close social network – enabling simple and easy re-purchasing by the network. This creates a powerful sales and marketing multiplier effect. Paylinx can assist you with installing WeChat Pay into your business ensuring you have the greatest success with your WeChat account.
