Shangri-La Group will kick off the launch of WeChat Mini Programme and WeChat online pay services on 1 June 2019. This service will eventually cover all its over 100 hotels globally including Shangri-La, Kerry, Hotel Jen and Traders properties. This makes Shangri-La the first hotel company to offer a range of e-services under the WeChat eco-system including online pay and offline deposit for guests with WeChat accounts. By personalising their experience through WeChat functionalities, Shangri-La guests can look forward to enjoying greater convenience and stay experience, as well as enhanced communications via social media engagement on the WeChat platform. These initiatives are a result of the Shangri-La and Tencent strategic partnership on digital transformation inked in 2018.
From 1 June, WeChat Mini Programme and WeChat online pay service will be available in all 50 Shangri-La properties in mainland China. The full suite of WeChat e-payment functions will be followed in stages for the other properties worldwide. The introduction of Shangri-La WeChat Mini Programme will also enable Golden Circle members to link their membership with WeChat ID.
