The company will offer the tax refund service via WeChat for foreign tourists under the partnership with Tenpay, a mobile payment firm of Tencent Group, signed on Friday.
The two companies are currently developing and testing the service with a schedule to open it on Feb. 25.
Foreigners will be able to select WeChat at tax refund kiosks installed at airports and ports as a platform to receive tax refunds by verifying themselves through QR code scanning.
