The Chinese tourists preferred payment method is Alipay, at home and abroad.
The leading mobile payment app in China, Alipay has over 450 million users. It’s more than just a payment app; Alipay is a self-described “global lifestyle super app”. Using an end-to-end marketing platform, Alipay influences Chinese tourists before their trip, prior to store entry, during in-store decision making, and after the sale.
The time is now for UK merchants to embrace this growing wave of payment opportunities.
HOW CAN I GET ALIPAY WITH VERIFONE?
With Verifone’s e355 solution, you can accept Alipay quickly and easily, with minimal setup.
With no integration required with your existing Point of Sale solution, you can get set up and start taking payments straight-forward.
You will be given a Verifone e355 mobile point of sale terminal which does more than just payments. It is easy to set up and use – and seamless for the customer to pay! The built-in scanner reads the bar code on the customer’s Alipay app, the transaction is secure, the customer knows how much they are paying in the local currency and funds are settled 4 working days.
Additionally the Verifone e355 is only 15.7mm thin; so compact, easily portable and ergonomically designed for one-hand use. You will be able to accept Alipay anywhere in the store and implement marketing campaigns targeting Chinese consumers who use the Alipay app.
Together, Verifone and Alipay can help you increase foot-traffic and enhance the shopping experience for millions of Chinese consumers.
