Since then, the subway station has been connected to WeChat Pay to allow unconscious payment, so that users can pay the parking fee through “WeChat unconscious payment” and enjoy convenient and efficient smart parking experience.

Since the parking lot of Shenzhen North subway station introduced “WeChat unconscious payment”, users have been able to enjoy the “unconscious payment” experience without “getting a card when entering and scanning the QR code for payment when leaving”. The average time for each vehicle to pass the boom barrier was shortened from 20 seconds to about 2 seconds.

After authorizing the account-binding, the vehicle owner can enjoy convenient “WeChat unconscious payment” at any parking lots that provide WeChat vehicle owner service at one click.
