We are using Stripe as our ecom payment provider and they offer wechat and alipay, but how can we enable it in our store?

    Hi @jr7sonic,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Unfortunately Alipay isn't available for Stripe at this moment, and we don't have plans to build this for the coming year. Wechat isn't available in the app store at this moment, we have a lot of other chat apps in our app store, please go to Apps -> App Store and search for another chat app which is available.

    I hope this helps.

    Hi Lucien,

    thanks for the reply. The Wechat is not only a chat app but also another payment method just like Alipay. We have many customers from China who want to use Alipay and Wechat pay.

    Do you know will they ever be built into the Lightspeed since they are available by Stripe?

    Hi @jr7sonic, our team is aware of a demand for use of Alipay and Wechat pay and are looking into possible solutions, however there isn't anything on the immediate horizon.
