Linked to WeChat Pay in China and Zero Pay affiliates in Gyeongsangnam-do

The Korea Easy Payment Promotion Agency (Chairman Wan-Soo Yun, hereinafter, Gyewon Han) announced that Zero Pay QR payment is possible with WeChat Pay at Zero Pay affiliated stores in Gyeongsangnam-do.

From 2021, WeChat Pay users can pay by recognizing the ZeroPay QR code with the WeChat Pay app without a separate ZeroPay payment app at ZeroPay affiliate stores in Gyeongsangnam-do.

Gyeongsangnam-do is the third region in which Zero Pay can be paid with the WeChat Pay app after Seoul and Busan, which started in November 2020.

Yun Wan-soo, chairman of the Korea Easy Payment Promotion Agency, said, “We hope that the link between Zero Pay and WeChat Pay will be an opportunity to support small business owners by helping various consumers make payments easily regardless of nationality in a difficult time due to Corona 19. We will do our best to help Zero Pay build a cross-border payment infrastructure by expanding and adding Zero Pay global payment companies.”
