Open a WeChat Official Account

Open an official account and mini-app to sell and market on WeChat.

WeChat is Everything

Perhaps no other app or online medium is anywhere near as important as WeChat in the everyday Chinese user’s life. WeChat is effectively the Chinese version of WhatsApp, Instagram, Paypal, and more. As of 2021, WeChat has 1.242 billion monthly active users, over 90% of Chinese people use WeChat and virtually 100% of Chinese people living in cities use WeChat.

Some of the most common functions include: 1 on 1 chats, group chats, video chats and voice calls, browsing contacts’ moments (photos, videos and shared links), online & offline payments, mobile top-ups, utility bills, rent, Didi (Chinese Uber ride), food and grocery delivery, and perhaps the most important to B2C brands, the mini-programs (aka mini-app).
