WeChat Pay is part of China’s largest mobile instant-messaging app, WeChat, which has over 800 million active users.
It allows users to pay bills, order goods, transfer money to other users, and pay in selected stores directly via smartphone using credit from their personal WeChat Pay accounts.
Under the new partnership agreement, Dusit Hotels & Resorts will be the first hotel group in Thailand to accept WeChat Pay at its restaurants, spas, participating outlets, and for hotel rooms upon check-out – initially at its owned properties in Thailand and subsequently also at its other properties around the world.
Users will be able to pay their hotel bills by simply scanning a QR code to have the relevant fee deducted from their accounts.
Executives from Dusit Hotels & Resorts, Ksher (WeChat Pay Thailand) and Asset Bright meet at the Dusit Thani Bangkok to sign their partnership agreement on Tuesday.
