What is WeChat Pay?
WeChat is a social media and a messaging app widely used in China. WeChat Pay is a payment solution that is completely integrated inside the messaging application which means that there is no specific app for WeChat Pay. At the start, WeChat was a chatting app just like Skype, Telegram, WhatsApp and all the other chatting apps. Later, it developed to allow people to make payments, chat as well as browse.
So briefly, we can say that WeChat Pay is a in-app payment feature which we can use to make payments via the WeChat app to pay. This app will expand into other countries later. WeChat Pay became one of the most famous chatting app and wallet in the world as it reached 650 million Monthly Active Users (MAU). Nearly all the people in China are aware of WeChat and WeChat Pay. This is because WeChat Pay and Alipay both have reached globally and are also very easy to use.
The WeChat wallet option appears on the WeChat application. To go to the WeChat payment option you first have to open the WeChat app. You then have to click on the “Me” button provided on the bottom right of the page. You then have to tap on the wallet button provided in the third row.
