Case Study: Camden Market leads the way welcoming Chinese tourists.

WeChat, owned by technology group Tencent and China’s most popular social media platform is transforming European e-commerce with its payment service, WeChat Pay. London’s iconic Camden Market was the first to launch this payment method at the Point of Sale enabling merchants to now accept payments from this popular payment application.

By partnering with SafeCharge, Camden Market integrated WeChat Pay to merchants’ POS systems to enable them to accept payments from Chinese tourists and the local community. This collaboration will add to the future growth of Chinese tourists visiting Camden Market.

Ceri, the Operations Director at Camden Market says, “Camden Market is constantly on the lookout for new and innovative ways to support their tenants and hopes that this integration will allow merchants to continue to meet the needs of a diverse London”.
