UnionPay has recently joined hands with more than 60 online merchants, including Meituan, Ctrip, JD.com and Pinduoduo, to enable online payment for UnionPay cards issued outside China’s mainland, covering key online use cases such as shopping, transit, flight booking, and utility payment.

When making payments online, users can select “UnionPay” or the merchant’s own service as the payment method at the checkout page, and enter the information of the UnionPay card to have it securely linked.

UnionPay is now available on these apps

Online payment for UnionPay cards issued outside China’s mainland is now available in the apps of well-known merchants such as Meituan (lifestyle), Ctrip (travel), Pinduoduo (retail), CaoCao Mobility (ride share), T3 Go (ride share), Didachuxing (ride share), Air China (airline), Dingdang Kuaiyao (pharmacy), Yonghui Life (supermarket), CR Vanguard (supermarket), RT-Mart (grocery), Sam’s Club (retail), and BL.com (retail).

UnionPay online payment is designed to fully accommodate the payment preferences of international users in China, and provide a secure and efficient payment experience for global cardholders with unified specifications, signage, and way of access that remove the barriers in online payment. In addition, the uniform payment portal and onboarding process allow merchants to easily enable UnionPay and receive UnionPay’s full-range support.

In response to the call of the Chinese government to optimise payment services and enhance payment convenience, UnionPay has launched Project Excellence 2024 to continuously make payments in key scenarios more accessible by playing the role of an industry hub and in collaboration with various players in the payment sector.

In terms of online spending, UnionPay’s acceptance network now covers 22m+ online merchants in over 200 countries and regions out of China’s mainland, supporting various day-to-day use cases such as online shopping, takeaway, taxi, travel booking, and utility payment, and servicing cardholders of the 230m+ cards issued outside the Chinese mainland.
