WeChat payment is suspected to launch special scenes such as glass pipes that cannot be paid under t

  According to the mobile payment network, the operation is a jump page after WeChat payment scanning on the offline self-service vending machine. The product is an hand blown glass pipes product, and the payment was unsuccessful because the buyer was under 18 years old.

  It is understood that on the afternoon of November 1, the State Tobacco Monopoly Bureau and the State Administration of Market Supervision and Administration issued the "Notice on Further Protecting Minors from Electronic Cigarettes" (hereinafter referred to as the "Notice"), urging enterprises or individuals that produce and sell electronic cigarettes to shut down hand blown glass pipes Internet sales websites or clients in a timely manner. Urge e-commerce platforms to close e-cigarette shops in time and remove e-cigarette products from shelves in time; Enterprises or individuals that produce and sell electronic cigarettes are urged to withdraw hand blown glass pipes advertisements published through the Internet.

  According to the requirements of the circular, minors under the age of 18 are not allowed to glass pipes for sale while electronic cigarettes are not allowed to be sold online. Off-line has also become a compliant sales channel for electronic cigarettes, and age verification has also become a problem. In the past, when selling tobacco products offline, the restriction on minors was mainly based on the subjective discrimination of shopkeepers, making it more difficult to refine supervision.

  The special scene age verification function introduced by WeChat payment has well solved the problem of minors purchasing "inappropriate" goods through electronic payment.

  The mobile payment network learned from people close to WeChat payment that such schemes provide an official interface for WeChat payment, while merchants have carried out secondary development.
