Hello, thank you for your question!

 

Creating a WeChat Official Account is free, and WeChat account creation is completed using the WeChat Official Accounts Platform. The account must be a Verified Service Account in order to have full API access. To get your Service Account verified by an authorized agency, the account owner must have a legal business entity in China.

 

For more information on WeChat account creation (and WeChat in general), you can visit our WeChat Community Knowledge Base. There, you'll find useful articles, including:

 

After creating your account, you must connect it to your Sinch solution. Sinch provides support for WeChat through the WeChat channel of the Conversation API. Our Conversation API Getting Started guide details the steps required to set up Conversation API on your account, and our article How do I configure a WeChat channel on the Conversation API? provides instructions for configuring the WeChat channel on your Conversation API app. Our developer documentation site also details this information, along with information on how to configure the channel using API calls.

 

Finally, it is free for users to send social messages between friends and business channels when using WeChat. However, you must have a license for the Conversation API platform in order to send messages on the WeChat channel of the Conversation API. Contact your Sinch Account Manager for pricing information and for any other questions.

 

Thank you again for reaching out!
