WeChat Pay is supported from Android Drop-in version 3.5.0 and later. For more information, see release notes.
Our Android Drop-in renders WeChat Pay in your payment form, and triggers the app switch from your app to the WeChat app on the shopper's device.
Before you begin
This page explains how to add WeChat Pay to your existing Android Drop-in integration. The Android Drop-in integration works the same way for all payment methods. If you haven't done this integration yet, refer to our Drop-in integration guide.
Before starting your WeChat Pay in-app integration:
- Make sure that you have set up your back end implementation, and added Drop-in to your payment form.
- Add WeChat Pay in your test Customer Area.
- Create a developer account on the WeChat Open Platform.
- Register your mobile app with WeChat.
Show WeChat Pay in your payment form
Drop-in uses the
countryCode and the
amount.currency from your /paymentMethods request to show the available payment methods to your shopper.
To show WeChat Pay in your payment form, specify in your /paymentMethods request:
- countryCode: Any supported country. For example, CN.
- amount.currency: Any supported currency. For example, CNY.
WeChat Pay is only shown in the payment form if WeChat app is available in the shopper's device.
Make a payment
When the shopper proceeds to pay, Drop-in returns the
paymentComponentData.paymentMethodto your server.
From your server, make a /payments request, specifying:
paymentComponentData.paymentMethodfrom your client app.
The /payments response includes an
actionobject that contains information about the app switch.
actionobject to your client app.
Check the payment result
Drop-in uses the

Test and go live
WeChat Pay currently has no test platform. If you have a personal WeChat account you can test your integration by either:
- Cancelling the transaction when you are asked to verify the payment (recommended).
- Making live WeChat Pay payments with a low value.
You can check the status of a WeChat Pay payment in your Customer Area > Transactions > Payments.
Before you can accept live WeChat Pay payments, you need to submit a request for WeChat Pay in your live Customer Area.
