It is learned from Railway Department and WeChat that WeChat Pay has been connected with 12306 railway ticket platform since November 23rd.

After verifying information and submitting the order, user can access to the payment page by clicking "pay", then select "WeChat Pay" to buy tickets. In 12306 official website, user can also buy ticket by WeChat Pay, quite convenient.
In this July, ordering meals by WeChat on the train has been jointly promoted by WeChat and 12306 to provide better experience and service for travelers. Payment modes of buying tickets have been further extended by combining 12306 to WeChat. Users can select convenient payment mode according to their habit. Meanwhile, emergencies including cash-out can also be avoided by the extension of offline payment mode.
