Sesame Credit Man­age­ment, a con­sumer credit agency backed by e-com­merce gi­ant Alibaba Group Hold­ing Ltd, has teamed up with China’s top court to pres­sure peo­ple to com­ply with court ver­dicts.

Sesame Credit, a busi­ness unit un­der Zhe­jiang Ant Small & Mi­cro Fi­nan­cial Ser­vices Group Co, the par­ent com­pany of China’s largest e-pay­ment tool Ali­pay, said in a state­ment on Tues­day that it has con­nected with the Supreme Peo­ple’s Court’s data­base, which con­tains a real-time blacklist of those who flout court ver­dicts, in­clud­ing debtors.

Those on the blacklist will not only see their Sesame credit score re­duced but also find that they are banned from buy­ing high­priced items online across Alibaba’s e-com­merce plat­forms in­clud­ing Taobao and Tmall.
