WeChat launches payment service in Hong Kong

wechatpayWeChat has launched its payment service WeChat Pay in Hong Kong, including the new Wallet in-app payment feature. Wallet allows WeChat users to connect their MasterCard or Visa credit cards with their accounts to allow them to pay for products and services without having to exit the WeChat app.

Users will be prompted to create a six digit PIN that must be input before any payment is authorized. Wallet currently supports payment for tickets, transportation services and travel products, and more product and service categories will be added soon. “We are so excited to bring WeChat Pay, a new mobile experience that allows users to pay on the go in the simplest way, to Hong Kong,” commented Norman Tam, head of the Hong Kong and Taiwan office of WeChat owner Tencent’s international business group.

WeChat has partnered with local merchants to offer Hong Kong users exclusive promotions and campaigns over the messaging service.

“Customized for Hong Kong users, WeChat Pay provides a seamless and secure payment experience to users while providing our partners with the benefit of a direct connection to WeChat’s massive community that other payment platforms cannot provide. This is truly a triple-win for us all,” concluded Tam
