Australian marketing and payment service provider, AirPay Financial Technologies (AirPay FinTech) announces an eCommerce partnership with UnionPay, an international payment network, to offer UnionPay Online Payment in Australia.
In June 2020, AirPay FinTech first launched its UnionPay QR code acquiring services in Australia. UnionPay QR code payment is accepted at over 29 million merchants in mainland China and is accepted in 33 countries and regions outside mainland China.
Co-founder of AirPay FinTech Simon Tse said, “In response to the growing demand for online payment & Chinese marketing services, we have further expanded UnionPay partnership to eCommerce landscape.”
“We had a joint venture, ToPay, with leading media group Today Australia last year, and we foresee more strategic partnership, merging & acquisition in 2021,” said Tse.
Co-founder of ToPay Stanley Yan said, “We are thrilled to integrate UnionPay Online Payment into our ToPay bill payment product. UnionPay is a popular payment method for overseas Chinese students, providing them a simple and convenient way to pay for tuition fee & everyday bills.”
“We look forward to launching UnionPay Online Payment onto new eCommerce platform Umall,” said Yan.
In December, AirPay FinTech partnered with Alipay to launch the “Black Diamond” campaign to key luxury retailers. Black Diamond is the most privileged membership category within Alipay. By scanning a unique QR code, Alipay users can redeem the best exchange rate offered by Alipay. The campaign has been said to be well accepted by Chinese shoppers during Boxing Day.
