Nuvei integrates with Alipay+ solution to make cross-border payments seamless

Nuvei integrates with Alipay+ solution for seamless cross-border paymentsNuvei, the global payment technology partner of thriving brands, and Alipay, the leading digital payment platform operated by Ant Group, announced a partnership that will connect Nuvei’s merchants with over 1.2 bn potential customers in the Asia Pacific region through the Alipay+ cross-border payment and merchant marketing solution. 

The collaboration includes access to a network of Asia’s leading local e-wallets. Beginning in early 2020, Alipay started offering its partners a cross-border payment and merchant marketing solution for businesses to easily accept different payment methods and conduct cost-effective digital marketing campaigns. The solution also makes it more convenient for users of Asia’s e-wallet service providers, including Alipay (Chinese mainland), AlipayHK (Hong Kong S.A.R.), Kakao Pay (Republic of Korea), GCash (the Philippines), TrueMoney (Thailand), DANA (Indonesia), and Touch’ n Go (Malaysia) to transact easily with more businesses. In China, Alipay alone connects over 80 mn businesses with more than 1 bn users.

“We aim to consistently provide the most relevant payment options that open up more global commerce possibilities, expand our clients’ potential customer base and drive new revenue streams. Our partnership with Alipay is yet another testament to this goal. The APAC region is an economic powerhouse and very attractive to growth-minded businesses. We’re delighted to empower merchants to better market to this region while making the purchase experience as seamless as possible,” said Philip Fayer, Nuvei’s Chair and CEO.

Alipay and Nuvei are currently integrated for online purchases via hosted payment page or API and its point-of-sale (POS) app for in-store purchases using a QR code. The adoption of the Alipay+ solution fuels Nuvei’s global reach, further expanding its significant portfolio of payment methods. The alliance enables Nuvei’s clients to seamlessly market to the Alipay+ network of e-wallet holders through a single API connection. Merchants will be able to accept one-time and recurring payments from Asia’s leading local e-wallet holders in the currency relevant to that payment method.

“Alipay has always believed in global partnerships, supporting service providers to better serve their clients and unlock growth opportunities so that it becomes easier for merchants to do business anywhere. With Nuvei’s integration into the Alipay+ solution, we look forward to enabling Nuvei to attract more Asian customers to its merchant network,” said Yulei Wang, General Manager of Global Merchant Partnerships at Alipay. 

Established in 2003, Nuvei is an electronic payment processing company. Its proprietary platform offers direct connections to all major payment card schemes worldwide, supports over 480 local and alternative payment methods and 150 currencies and 40 cryptocurrencies.
