Payments, Banking & Finance

Corporate Partner, Alipay is the world’s leading mobile and online payment platform; and is a preferred payment method of the millions of Chinese travellers who visit Australia annually. Alipay works with many Australian financial institutions and payment solution providers or “acquirers”, and in doing so enables cross-border payments from Chinese travellers plus local residents who purchase products and services from Chinese e-commerce sites.  Tourism operators (also referred to as "merchants") must work with approved payment "acquirers" to accept Alipay. Your existing payment provider can advise if your business is already enabled to accept and process Alipay payments.
