"We need to be where our customers are – and as a British-made brand we have a huge following from customers in China. Mobile commerce is vital for this market, especially for the younger urban Chinese shopper. WeChat Pay is essential for targeting this exciting demographic," said Natalie Zhu, China Marketing Manager, The Cambridge Satchel Company. "Our global partnership with Adyen allows us to roll out new local payment methods as they become relevant to our customers, hassle-free."
"We are very excited to support WeChat Pay. When combined with our existing UnionPay and Alipay integrations, it gives businesses access to the world's biggest ecommerce market with a single partner. This is the final key to unlocking full access to the Chinese shopper," said Adyen CCO Roelant Prins. "This is especially appealing to travel businesses and high-end retailers."
WeChat Pay is the latest addition to the constantly evolving suite of local payment methods offered by Adyen. WeChat, originally a messaging app, has evolved into a digital ecosystem featuring payments integration that is already used by half of WeChat's 800 million users.
