Recently, we received an inquiry about how to install AliPay outside China as an merchant?
Generally speaking, AliPay is the equivalent of PayPal that helps end users and merchants for payment transaction. Any commercial merchant could its AliPay account by visiting global.alipay.com, following its guide step by step.
How can we expect AliPay for our business? Does AliPay bring us lots more Chinese customers since AliPay’s users reach nearly 1 billion?
Definitely not. However, AliPay is friendly option for payment when you face Chinese customers. It’s not a must for most wealthy Chinese during their visit outside China.
As for the China section of your international business, your Chinese version on website will play much important role, help Chinese understand well what your business represents, your brand awareness in long term.
