The rise and rise of Chinese wallets in payment processing

The rise and rise of Chinese wallets in payment processing



China has embraced mobile payments more than any other nation. Most Chinese shoppers now expect to make payments with their digital wallets.

Alipay and WeChat Pay dominate mobile payments in the Chinese domestic market. Between them, Alipay and WeChat Pay have over 1 billion users[1], a penetration rate of over 90%[2] and a combined market share of well over 90%[3]. Alipay has 520 million active mobile payment users[4]; WeChat Pay has 300 million a month[5].

 

Research carried out by Nielsen shows that more than 93% of Chinese tourists would be likely to increase their spending if mobile payment methods are more widely accepted[6]. As a result, more and more European merchants are now looking to offer Alipay and WeChat Pay as in-store payment methods.

More than 60% of European merchants who have adopted Alipay reported growth in both footfall and revenue[6], clearly showing the benefit that offering such payment methods brings to their businesses.

 

The benefits go further than payments, as these two lifestyle ‘mega-apps’ also offer considerable marketing benefits, which merchants can leverage to drive awareness, footfall and grow sales. 

 

Planet offer an all-in-one payment solution for merchants, including on boarding and marketing support.

 

Planet Merchant Services provides merchants with the ability to accept Alipay and WeChat Pay payments using either a stand-alone app or an android based PAX terminal. This is supported by our extensive knowledge of using Alipay and WeChat Pay for marketing, delivering a very strong proposition for merchant partners.
