eWallet ftw!

[sponsored post]

So WeChat invited WomeninTechZA to try out its WeChat Wallet, and buy some awesome stuff with Stuff magazine (which is running a promo with WeChat and Incredible Connection in its latest issue).

3A1E8C20-0E20-43EF-8C74-53B6232AB40AIt was all rather simple – sign up for WeChat (if you haven’t already), go to your profile, and enable the wallet. This requires you to add in some legal type stuff (like your ID no) and to link a bank card to the system.

Then you just get the latest issue of Stuff, have a browse through the Incredible Connection goodies on offer and scan in the QR code using WeChat Wallet – and voila.

I decided to get a Fitbit because I don’t need a smartphone, or headphones, or any of the other cool gadgets on offer. Once you’ve scanned the code you select the payment method (money in the wallet or bank card), fill in your details for Incredible Connection and your purchase is done.  It took me all of 5 minutes, and now all I have to do is contain all the excited ’til my new toy arrives…

Oh yes, if you buy any of the goodies during the promo, you get cash back too. Nice! Try it out and let us know what you think by tweeting @womenintechza and @wechatza.
