​​​​​​​EC Weekly Picks 中国旗

Chinese media reported that "WeChat Pay" operated by its competitor "Tencent" can now be used on the app of China's major online shopping "Alibaba's" subsidiary. Until now, many Chinese Internet companies have blocked access to competing sites with their own apps to prevent the use of other companies' services. However, this time, under the guidance of the Chinese government, they will shift to unblocking. As a result, mutual access between Tencent and Alibaba, which are the top two payment services, has been realized.
