Wirecard offers a merchant app for smartphones and tablets for payment processing China e-payments. Alternatively, you can integrate the payment methods into your checkout system via an SDK or a hardware connector.
Open the merchant app or select Alipay/WeChat Pay in your checkout system and scan the barcode generated by the customer’s app. The payment process is launched automatically.
You can view all transactions in the overview section of your merchant app. Once the transaction has been completed, the sales receipt and a document for requesting a VAT refund at customs are printed.
