Tencent has unveiled new measures aimed at improving the payment experience for international tourists visiting China, with a focus on simplifying card linking procedures and expanding integration with overseas e-wallets such as Paynet.

Overseas users can now easily create a WeChat account using their country's phone number and securely register or log in to their account. Linking international payment cards to Weixin Pay requires basic card information, enabling users to safely and conveniently make payments at various merchants across mainland China.
