    Walk The Chat helped us launch our brand on Wechat China last year. The team was most helpful in the set up our Wechat store and the connector app is useful to integrate to our Shopify Store. This makes it much easier to check on orders and manage inventory.

    The Walk The Chat team has been very helpful and responsive and helped our brand launch in China. The connector has been easy to use, though we look forward to the improvements for sales reporting so that our Shopify $ reporting matches the WeChat RMB reporting.
