Alipay enables users to link Alipay app to their Apple ID
By Leandra Monteiro
Alipay announced the launch of a new feature for iPhone customers with the latest version of Alipay app to quickly add it to their Apple ID and complete payment authorization one-stop within the app.
Updating to iOS 16.4 and later, iPhone customers can search for “Apple” in the Alipay app to enter the “Apple Zone”, add Alipay to their Apple ID and complete the payment authorization. This feature is available for users who have yet linked Alipay as the Apple ID payment method and only takes 3 steps for users to get ready to pay for apps, games or in-app purchases, or subscribe to iCloud+ and Apple Music.
Users can manage their accounts from the “Apple Zone”, including setting monthly payment limits and checking up details of each purchase etc. In fact, the “Apple Zone” has become a go-to place for Apple customers to check out discounts every Friday, including red packets for shopping in the App Store and privileges offered by developers. This fast-binding process has further improved the shopping experience for Apple fans
This new feature will also soon be available in the AlipayHK app for Hong Kong customers to enjoy the upgraded experience.
Alipay has transformed from a trusted payment tool to an open platform for businesses, institutions, service providers, and other partners. Business partners in various industries utilize it to offer consumers a safe and convenient payment experience.
