So, what's a VAT, you ask?

VAT stands for Value Added Tax, and it's an indirect tax charged on just about everything you buy in France, but guess what? If you're a non-EU resident travelling in France, you don't have to pay that.

It used to be that claiming your VAT refund was an ordeal and a half but with Wevat, your purchase invoices are automatically organized and your refund generated instantly.

Au revoir time-wasting lineups and papers accumulating everywhere. Bonjour Wevat!

Here's how it works:

Just download your app from the Apple store or Google Play and register. Then, fill in your trip details, select your preferred payment method - a choice between bank transfer, credit card refund, Alipay and WeChat Pay - and you're ready to go!

Each time you shop, ask the sales clerk for your invoice. Take a picture of the ticket and upload it. Then, when it's time to wrap up your trip you can skip the VAT claims forms process by tapping your phone at a Wevat-supported kiosk.

Traveling just got a whole lot easier!

Wevat supports refunds in 50 different currencies and you can monitor the process using the app’s refund tracker feature.

You'll only be charged a one-time service fee and no foreign exchange fees. You can also rely on multilingual 24/7 customer support whenever you need it.

Curious about the brains behind this revolutionary tech sorcery? Raphael Chow, named one of Forbes’ 30 under 30 in 2021, is Wevat's co-founder and CEO.
