Network International & Alipay+ collaborates to expand payments options
By Delisha Fernandes
Network International has announced its strategic partnership with Alipay+, to enable the acceptance of several e-wallets from across the world on its POS terminals for its 50,000+ merchants in the UAE.
Developed by Ant Group, Alipay+ provides cross-border mobile payment and marketing solutions which enable merchants, including small and medium-sized businesses, to better serve global consumers.
The collaboration will offer Network’s robust merchant partner network in the UAE across travel, retail, hospitality, tourism, and F&B industries, among others, access to Alipay+ e-wallet partners including Alipay (Chinese mainland), MPay (Macao SAR China), GCash (The Philippines), Kakao Pay (South Korea), TrueMoney (Thailand), Tinaba (Italy) and more.
Pankaj Kundra, Group Head of Products, Partnerships and Enterprises at Network International, said, “Network has always been at the forefront of introducing diverse and innovative payment technologies and solutions for easier, safer, and secure cross border payment transactions. We are delighted to join hands with Alipay+, unlocking significant potential for our merchant partners to serve a broad customer base from across the globe.”
With Network’s N-Genius payment terminal and simple integration feature provided by Alipay+, merchants will be able to access the existing and later-onboarded digital payment methods through a unified interface and without implementing additional technical hardware.
Douglas Feagin, Senior Vice President, and Head of Alipay+ Cross-Border Mobile Payment Services, Ant Group , said “Network has been an invaluable partner since we first introduced Alipay to local merchants in 2018 to ensure a frictionless experience for Chinese tourists. Today, we are pleased to further deepen our strategic partnership through the launch of Alipay+ to Network’s robust merchant network, enabling visitors across the world to enjoy the same hassle-free experience in the UAE. Under the partnership, we are looking forward to bringing more growth opportunities to merchants and more convenience and memorable experience to consumers worldwide.”
