Alibaba is making Alipay payment method available to international travellers in China for the first time.
Alipay opening up…
Starting today, tourists visiting China will be able to download and use the Alipay app during their trip. Users will not need a Chinese bank account, and will be able to register using an overseas number, bank card and visa to sign up for a “Tour Pass” mini-program.
Making payment more convenient
With mobile payments accepted across China, even in wet markets and mom-and-pop stores, the Tour-Pass will make payment much more convenient for international travellers visiting China.
