JD.com, the leading Chinese online retailer that recently went public on the NASDAQ and Tencent has a stake in, has been added onto WeChat (aka Weixin) as the “Shopping” channel under the tab of Explore (not official translation) —  above the Game channel, and Mobile QQ, the mobile version of Tencent’s flagship instant messaging product QQ.

Payments will be supported by WeChat Payment. Delivery address will be automatically added after you link your JD account to WeChat account.

There are three sub-channels: recommendations (based on user behavior), deals from brands and value-for-money items.
