China's Alipay to Be Available in Ten Global Airports

 

(2016-09-28 09:02:56)

Chinese tourists can use China's largest third party payment platform Alipay at ten
overseas airports from next month.

Ant Financial Services Group, an affiliate of e-commerce giant Alibaba and owner of
Alipay, announced on Monday the ten airports are in Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan,
Germany, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, New Zealand, and Thailand; the top travel
destinations for tourists from the Chinese Mainland.

This is only the first step of Alipay's going global project, said Peng Yijie, the vice
president of Ant Financial's international business, as the company has reached
cooperation agreements with more international hubs. It is expected that Chinese
consumers will be able to use Alipay at 30 airports outside the Chinese mainland in
the future.

Statistics from the National Tourism Administration show that more than 59 million
tourists from the Chinese mainland traveled abroad in the first half of 2016, up 4.3
percent year-on-year, topping all other nations in both tourist numbers and
expenditure.

Alipay has been expanding its overseas business in recent years, to include duty-free
shops, restaurants, and shopping malls.
