173 Xinhua bookstores throughout Zhejiang Province have launched "self-help book buying" services. Once book buyers register, they simply use their smartphones to gain access, with the entire purchase process completed within two minutes.

"After choosing books you want to buy, you just use your smartphone to scan a QR code, then scan the bar code on back cover of the book, which takes you to the payment page. Both WeChat and Alipay can be accepted," a Xinhua consumer in Hangzhou told Zhejiang Online.
