Recently, WeChat Pay announced that it will charge 0.6% service fee for all businesses from July 1, which attracted the attention of many universities across the country.
Due to the widespread use of WeChat Pay on campus, the implementation of this new policy will bring huge economic pressure to universities. As a result, many universities announced that they would suspend the use of WeChat Pay from July 1.
It doesn’t end there. The incident was widely reported by the media attracting extensive attention and discussion with several netizens expressing their dissatisfaction and disappointment with the new charges . In this situation, Tencent’s WeChat team issued an apology stating that they did not fully consider the user experience and needs and deeply apologizes for the impact caused.
