huawei, Aleta, unionpay international, UPIHuawei Pay, the mobile payment service, today announced a new partnership with Aleta Planet and UnionPay International (UPI) to introduce the mobile payment solution combining Near Field Communication (NFC) and Quick Response Code (QR code) payments for Singapore Huawei users.

Earlier in May, Huawei Pay was launched in Singapore for users to enjoy secure, and convenient mobile transactions with their smart devices. Users can enable Huawei Pay by adding their bank cards to the HUAWEI Wallet app and transact conveniently in-store and in-app.

Now, Huawei Pay provides further improved in-store payment experience by offering both NFC and QRC payment methods for greater flexibility. Individuals can choose to pay with either way in the retail stores.

In the Asia Pacific, Singapore-based Aleta Planet is said to be the first FinTech partner that supports both the NFC and QR code payments via Huawei Pay. Aleta Planet is a virtual card service provider which allows users to pay, remit, and collect payments through the UnionPay network. To begin with the service, users need to download the company’s ‘AP-1’ mobile app from the HUAWEI AppGallery and apply for an AP-1 virtual card entirely online. The card can then be added to Huawei Pay and cashless NFC and QR code payments at various merchant locations can be made.

“We are pleased to announce this collaboration with Singapore’s homegrown FinTech company, Aleta Planet, in providing the convenience of our Singapore users to make payment anywhere, anytime. By using Huawei Pay, the AP-1 users can handily make NFC and QR code payment, as well as enjoying a slew of exclusive privileges available. This partnership is part of Huawei’s continuous efforts on optimising the mobile experience for our users,” said Shane Shan, Director of Huawei Mobile Services, Asia Pacific.

Starting now and till February 28, 2021, Singapore Huawei Pay users are entitled up to eighteen per cent discount at HEYTEA with UnionPay QR Code payment.
