What is Alipay?
Alipay is the world’s largest digital payment service and has currently over 520 million active users.
The service is mainly used in China, but as Chinese tourists increase, more and more stores in Europe choose to offer Alipay as a payment method.
Alipay is a multi-platform and is not only used to pay in stores or to make online purchases. With Alipay users can also transfer money, pay bills, buy stocks, collect discount vouchers, buy airplane tickets and much more. All this is done directly in the app.
Alipay also has a travel shopping platform where companies can promote themselves to tourists. Here tourists easily can find connected stores, view their offers and get directions to them.
Is Alipay safe?
Yes. Alipay is a global payment service with more than 520 million active users and security is highly prioritized. The service is monitored in real time with smart algorithms so that fraudulent purchases can be detected quickly. Thanks to advanced encryption technology, Alipay ensures that no information reaches an unauthorized party. Alipay also works with risk management to protect its users, to prevent money laundering and fraud. Good to know is that any unauthorized transaction is fully compensated by Alipay.
Who can use Alipay?
Almost only Chinese citizens are using Alipay. However, Alipay has revealed expansion plans where they will partner up with foreign banks. One example is Japan, where Alipay has said that they will enter at the beginning of 2018.
Today, Alipay require that their users either have a Chinese or a Hong Kong bank account.
What are the benefits for the merchant?
There are several advantages of being connected to Alipay.
Purchases made by Chinese tourists will be very efficient while the transaction cost is significantly lower than if the customer pays with, for example, UnionPay. If your store is affiliated with Alipay, your store will be exposed on the shopping platform.
This means that Chinese tourists travelling in your city easily can find you directly on their mobile. They can also take part of your offers, see your opening hours and find any other important information.
Some of the advantages for your store:
• More Chinese customers
• Marketing on China’s largest shopping app
• Lower transaction fee than UnionPay
• Create custom marketing campaigns
• No Chinese bank account is required
What are the benefits for the customer?
Chinese tourists appreciate paying with Alipay. It’s a payment service that they usually pay with and also know is safe. With Alipay, Chinese tourists do not need to exchange money and can keep track of their travel expenses.
A purchase with Alipay is quick and easy, which is appreciated for an already time-pressured tourist group. Many Chinese tourists are visiting Europe for the first time and there is a general concern to be fooled since they don’t speak the language or know the local currency that well.

Some of the benefits are:
• Better exchange rates than UnionPay / Visa / MasterCard
• Prices are displayed in the Chinese currency
• Bonus points on each Alipay transaction
• Store information is displayed in Chinese
• Shopping in the same way as in China
• Fast and smooth payment
