Verifone and Alipay have extended their existing global partnership to Verifone Taxi Solutions to simplify taxi payments for Chinese travelers in North America.

The partnership enables Chinese travelers in New York and Las Vegas to pay for taxis in the US with Alipay mobile wallet.

Verifone Taxi Solutions will allow 2,100 taxis in Las Vegas to accept Alipay by the end of October 2017 and 14,000 taxis in NewYork by November 2017.

Alipay North America president Souheil Badran said: “Paying for taxis can be one of the most stressful elements of traveling abroad, particularly if you don’t speak the language.

“By extending our partnership with Verifone to taxis in New York and Las Vegas, two of the most popular destinations in America for Chinese tourists, we are giving greater confidence to Chinese travelers that they will be able to pay for their taxi ride using the same convenient payment method they use at home, without language barriers.”

Verifone global taxi systems senior vice president Amos Tamam added: “Chinese visitors to the U.S. are increasing in number every year and we are continuing to elevate the cashless payment experience by making it easy to pay inside American taxi cabs.
