LINE Pay Begins Integrating WeChat Pay

LINE Pay Begins Integrating WeChat Pay

by August 20, 2019

LINE Pay Corporation, operator of the LINE Pay mobile money transfer and payment service available on the LINE messaging app, announced recently that its merchants have been integrating WeChat Pay since early August.

Once system integration is complete, WeChat Pay users simply scan a Japanese LINE Pay merchant’s QR code to pay with their WeChat Pay balance. Since WeChat Pay is heavily used in China, the service will be particularly convenient for Chinese tourists visiting Japan.

Merchants with LinePay will be able to accept WeChat Pay and NAVER Pay as additional payment options without additional registration and charges as part LINE Pay’s Global Alliance.

The partnership is a one-way arrangement, LinePay will not be usable at WeChat Pay locations in China
