Tucked away at the ground level of Peace Centre lies a cozy and intimate nail salon, Black Claws. This newly established nail parlour prides itself on its unique interior, and it is easy to see why. Upon entering the salon, eye-catching furniture pieces such as the overhanging chandeliers and ram skull successfully set the tone for the one-of-a-kind experience to come.
Black Claws offers a variety of nail designs that have been specially designed by their highly skilled nail artists hailing from Malaysia, China and Korea. However, if you have any specific requests, they are also able to customize nail art for you. Pokémon Go fans, you’d be thrilled to know that they are able to do Pokémon nail art as well!
Through FOMO Pay, Black Claws has adopted WeChat Pay for the past two months and has been listed as our most popular merchant this week, recording the highest sales via WeChat Pay. Hence, we sat down with the owner of Black Claws for a short interview.
How has the adoption of WeChat Pay impacted your business?
Despite the short span of time, the store has seen a significant increase in the number of Chinese customers who choose to pay by WeChat Pay. It is easier to pay via WeChat Pay for these customers, especially when they have not brought out cash or cards. After doing their nails here, they would then recommend it to their friends, who would then come down to do their nails. Given the location of the store, we do attract a lot of Chinese customers, so being able to accept payment via WeChat Pay definitely helps.
Has adopting WeChat Pay been convenient for you?
Yes, WeChat Pay is easy to adopt into the system. Currently, we accept Nets, Cash and WeChat Pay.
