Alipay partners with WorldRemit to tap into the Chinese diaspora

The partnership will boost Alipay’s control of money flowing into China and increase its status abroad.


Alipay is one step closer to e-wallet world domination following a new partnership with online remittances company WorldRemit.

The partnership, agreed on the January 22, will allow consumers to use the WorldRemit app or website to send cross-border remittances to the Alipay app, creating access to China’s mobile money market and serving the 50 million-strong Chinese diaspora.

Sankar Krishnan, executive vice-president, banking and capital markets at Capgemini, says: “For Alipay, the integrated platform has just received a valuation boost as arguably the largest single payments provider in a single global market, where P2P payments are continuously the norm with the growth in real-time payment wallets.”
