Alipay is the most popular e-wallet in Asia and facilitates millions of payments every day in China. With Alipay, users can make transactions in seconds to buy food, clothing or pay rent. Moreover, there are multiple online and offline Alipay payment methods, e.g. quick pay, QR code scan and online API for checkout.
WeChat Pay is the second most popular e-wallet in China. Since WeChat is China’s most popular social media platform, WeChat Pay users range from all walks of life. Moreover, the most common uses for WeChat Pay are booking a hotel, and paying for transport and restaurants.
92% of the urban Chinese population use a combination of these e-wallets for daily transactions. Therefore, to cover your store with a majority of Chinese customers, integrating both is the key step to gaining a loyal customer base.
