For example, top influencer Li uses her influence to promote her brand, has also used her following to receive outside investment to fund her product line, but valuation or amounts invested were not publicly disclosed.
WeChat and other platforms have options for users to link their bank accounts to their platform username, which allows them to both buy and earn.
