Are you selling to Chinese customers?
This is the perfect plugin for business owners or entrepreneurs who want to accept WeChat Pay or Alipay payments from Chinese customers.
Stripe.com supports WeChat Pay and Alipay payments, meaning you don’t have to set up a WeChat Official Account or register your business in China in order to accept WeChat Pay. Now, you can easily charge Chinese consumers using a payment method familiar to them and then have the funds deposited into your domestic bank account associated with Stripe. Simple and easy!
WeChat Pay, Alipay & Credit Card Payments Work Seamlessly
- WeChat Pay generates a QR code for the end-user to scan using their mobile device
- Alipay payments redirect the user to Alipay’s website, which displays a QR code for the same mobile payment process or to login to the user’s Alipay account, then automatically redirects the end-user back to your selected thank you page upon payment completion
- Users are redirected to the Thank You page
- WeChat users must generate the code on another device and scan it with their WeChat app. A notification pops up on the form notifying them to do this.
- Alipay users are redirected to the corresponding payment website on their mobile browsers to complete payment.
- Users are redirected to the Thank You page
