Chinese payments giant WeChat Pay can now be used by foreign visitors to pay for goods and services in China.

The Chinese payments giant has partnered with Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover Global Network, and JCB to allow foreign visitors to link their credit cards to WeChat Pay. This marks the first time that foreign visitors will be able to use international credit cards to pay with WeChat Pay in China.

Previously, WeChat Pay only supported users that had mainland Chinese bank cards, savings cards, and credit cards.

To sign up for the newly-expanded service, WeChat Pay users can add international credit cards directly to their digital wallets on the WeChat app.
