Businesses will be able to offer this fast and convenient payment option to their customers and also deliver promotions and offers to them which can be automatically applied to purchases made using WeChat.
WeChat, locally known in China as Weixin, is one of the largest standalone messaging apps in the world, with 697 million monthly active user accounts. WeChat supports peer-to-peer money transfers and payments and has become a popular form of payment in China. Users pay with WeChat by opening the app and generating a QR code which the POS operator then scans.
With Vexilor, businesses have many options to accept WeChat payments. Restaurants can scan WeChat QR codes using their portable tableside tablets. Retailers can use QR code scanners with their Vexilor workstations.
"Being able to accept WeChat payment is a must-have for any business in China," says Clayton Gray, Managing Director of Sales, China, Givex. "We're excited to offer this to any business that signs up with us."
