Alipay, JPMorgan Chase team up to serve Chinese travellers in North America

By Shruti T

Alipay, a mobile payment platform operated by Ant Financial, has joined forces with JPMorgan Chase to allow Chinese tourists in North America to pay with Alipay mobile wallet at Chase merchant clients.

Alipay app’s geolocation-based ‘Discover’ function and push notifications will allow users to locate nearby merchants, receive promotions and make purchase decisions.

It also enables local merchants to target and connect with Chinese consumers.

Chase Merchant Services head of product and strategy Pablo Simone said: “We are always looking for ways to deliver more value to our merchants and bring them closer to their customers.

“A relationship with Alipay would create opportunities that enable Chinese tourists to transact in a way they are familiar with.”

Alipay North America president Souheil Badran added: “We are thrilled to work with JPMorgan Chase as we seek to continue growing the number of retailers who accept Alipay across North America.

“Partnering with JPMorgan Chase will help more U.S. merchants extend secure payment services to Chinese tourists.”
