The service will make it more convenient for Chinese tourists to apply for a Thai visa.

They can fill out an application form and make an appointment via the website thaievisa.go.th. They can also pay via popular Chinese online payment platforms such as AliPay and WeChat Pay. Finally, they have to submit their passport for approval and affixing of the visa sticker at an embassy or consulate.
