WeChat payment promotion in Hong Kong is very strong. In February, WeChat Pay HK provided a subsidy of HK$10 to McDonald's orders of more than HK$25 per meal, and also distributed red packets worth about HK$10 million during the Chinese New Year.

A survey by JD Power, an international marketing information services provider, shows that while users may be happy with WeChat payments, it seems to be losing Alipay in terms of usage.
In contrast, nearly 30% of them use Alipay, the highest ranking of all mobile wallet.
