The leading cloud-based hospitality distribution technology specialist partnership with Valoot will allow properties on its network to welcome more Chinese consumers who widely use WeChat Pay for their online transactions.
The integration with the most popular and preferred choice of payment for Chinese travellers, WeChat Pay, via Valoot’s gateway services further extends STAAH’s reach, making it more attractive to accommodation providers.
Following this connection, accommodation providers on STAAH’s network will now be able to accept WeChat Pay bookings. It will also enable businesses to create their official WeChat account – via Valoot – and increase their visibility in China. THE most prominent payment gateway and online platform in the region, WeChat is used by more than one billion Chinese consumers worldwide. The channel is integral to increase reach and bookings from the lucrative China market.

The partnership with Vallot to accept WeChat Pay in multiple payment scenarios allows our client properties to provide an integral and seamless payment experience that Chinese consumers are familiar and comfortable with.
