WeChat’s Mini Programs can facilitate e-commerce functionality on WeChat and is amongst the most popular in China for social commerce. In 2020, the platform facilitated transactions worth an estimated 1.6 trillion yuan ($250 billion). That was double its 2019 transaction value.
WeChat hosts over 2 million Mini Programs, compared to Apple App Store’s 1.96 million and Google Play Store’s 2.87 million. This platform is growing year on year and has rapidly established itself as a highly effective low-cost route to reaching the China market.
Regroup China has been building WeChat mini programs for many European luxury and high street retailers as well as food and drink brands and developing booking capabilities for the student property market.
China accounted for around 50% of global online retail sales in 2020! As China’s online population is set to increase, this figure will only go up and selling to WeChat’s rapidly-growing audience will become ever more important.
