[Media Briefing][Korea Joongang Daily] Hanyang University Accepts Chinese QR payments

Starting in September, Hanyang University will accept tuition fees via WeChat Pay. The program is being developed with Shinhan Bank, and approximately 900 or so convenience stores and restaurants at train stations in Korea have started accepting WeChat payments. Many institutions including Hanyang University have begun accepting Chinese QR code mobile payments, and the growth of the Chinese payment system is becoming a concern for some individuals. One concern is that since the networks are Chinese, it may be hard to track down the payment records, and that could lead to tax evasion. However, with the growing popularity of direct purchases, many online shopping malls have started accepting mobile payment systems as well. As a potential consequence, this could result in Korean exporters evading taxes. View original article : http://koreajoongangdaily.joins.com/news/article/article.aspx?aid=3057334
