In fact, more than 3,000,000 Chinese nationals visited the U.S in 2016, and that figure is expected to nearly double to 5,720,000 by 2021. 

To tap into this market, it’s imperative that you offer Chinese consumers their preferred payment type: Alipay. With more than 400 million users worldwide, Alipay is China’s leading third-party online payment app.

Now, thanks to PayAnywhere’s integration with Alipay, you can attract new and loyal customers to your place of business.

How to accept Alipay with PayAnywhere:

1. Select Alipay on the PayAnywhere Checkout screen.
2. A menu will appear on the screen with the option to Scan with Camera or Type Barcode.
Select the method you prefer and follow the instructions on the next screen.
3. Select Tip Amount (if enabled), otherwise the transaction will be approved.
4. Print, email, or text the receipt.


That’s all there is to it! Once you start accepting Alipay, your business will receive promotion within the Alipay app itself, giving you increased exposure. We’ll also send you an Alipay window decal and stand for you to display and help attract even more consumers using the app.

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to serve the large and growing consumer base of Chinese nationals!
