It currently uses three channels to sell tickets, which are Tencent’s two social networks WeChat and QQ, and also its own WePiao app. It also merged with the parent company of another online ticket selling platform, Gewara, last December. According to a post by Tencent’s incubator program, Tencent Open Platform, a program that Weiying is a part of, the company has cooperated with more than 5,000 cinemas in over 500 cities and more than 1,200 theatres, arenas and exhibition halls. And the maximun number of tickets issued by Weiying on a single day was upwards of 3,500,000.
