China Unicom Global has selected Citcon, a mobile payment and marketing platform, to enable omni-channel payment for its new CUniq mobile virtual network operation (MVNO) business in Americas.

The partnership will enable China Unicom to accept payments from Chinese travellers through Alipay, WeChat Pay and Union Pay, in addition to other credit cards.

Citcon's omni-channel payment solution will enable customers to purchase and pay for the products with their preferred choice of payment when they are traveling abroad.

China Unicom’s CUniq features one-card-multiple-number card service, which is available in 47 countries and regions, including China, America, Asia and Europe.

Citcon founder and CEO Chuck Huang said: "The partnership with China Unicom signifies the value of our integrated mobile payment for companies targeting Chinese travelers in North America.

"It sets an excellent example for e-commerce businesses and telecommunications companies that look to meet customers' demands and drive business growth in various payment scenarios. It is also a strong evidence to demonstrate our capabilities of delivering stable, secure and customized solutions for large corporate clients."
