This new partnership with Tencent Financial Technology expands acceptance of Paysend transfers to Weixin users and underlines our ambition to use the most advanced technology to make payments faster and easier for millions of people around the world.”

Wenhui Yang, General Manager, Tencent Financial Technology Asia Pacific, said: “As customer preferences change, companies like Paysend provide an easier, more convenient, and lower-cost alternative for people to send money to friends and family.
