A quick and easy way to claim your tax refund

Once you have finished your shopping in Spain and had your Tax Free Forms validated by Customs, you simply need to visit the airport refund counter at Madrid Airport and follow the below steps:

1. Scan the QR code using your WeChat app. This will open the Tax Refund mini-app
2. Follow the on-screen instructions
3. Choose ‘Immediate refund’
4. Show the barcode to the cashier
5. The refund is paid to your WeChat wallet

You’ll see your refund in ¥ RMB in your WeChat Pay wallet straight away.

The service will be available at additional airports and stores across Europe during 2018.
