An enterprising Animal Crossing player from China has found a way to make real-world monies from within the game.
As shared by Daniel Ahmad on Twitter, the player in question set up a store on their island, which sells custom-made in-game items. The money-making aspect comes from the WeChat Pay and AliPay QR codes which the player also designed in-game.
As noted by Ahmad, these codes allow people to pay the player with real-world cash.

Well, that’s certainly a creative way of making a profit from a game. Guess we should all take notes.
