Alipay is the most used payment method in China. Alipay has 1.2 billion users worldwide, of which more than 900 million are located in China. Together they account for more than 100 million transactions daily, mostly taking place via a digital wallet: the Alipay Wallet.
This wallet allows consumers to conduct online payment directly via a linked credit or debit card. In addition, Alipay is also suitable for physical stores by paying via a QR code directly from a mobile device. The consumer requires a Chinese bank card to create an Alipay account.
Due to a rapidly increasing prosperity in China, Chinese tourism abroad is thriving. With over 300,000 Chinese tourists coming to the Netherlands each year and the increasing number of Chinese who live and study abroad, this payment method offers great added value for retailers and web shops alike. Chinese consumers use Alipay and are likely to purchase faster if they are able to pay via Alipay; their trusted payment method.
