WeChat Wallet

Payments have never been this simple.

WeChat, Africa’s fastest growing social communications platform has launched its WeChat Wallet. This new feature allows for a seamless and secure payment facility for friends to send money to one another, cash money out at all Standard Bank ATMs and accredited retailers and make purchases from any SnapScan merchant in South Africa.

WeChat Wallet is a new way for you to manage payments with your mobile phone. You can add your debit or credit cards, get money sent to you from a friend and pay for goods and services at SnapScan merchants across South Africa. You can also buy airtime, electricity and any of the services in WeChat’s growing ecosystem.


The launch of WeChat Wallet has the potential to truly change the way we interact with the app and this is at the heart of the collaboration with Stuff and Incredible Connection. How it works is relatively simple. In the July-August issue of Stuff magazine, there are various tech products available on promotion, with a QR Code on the page. Scan the QR code with WeChat and it takes you to your Wallet. Click Ship It, enter your details, including delivery address and click Purchase.
