Alipay ties up with Thai bank
China’s Alipay and Thailand’s Kasikorn Bank said on Saturday at Bangkok tourist hotspot Jatujak Market that they will enhance their cooperation in promoting QR code payment in Thailand.
Kasikorn Bank has already developed a mobile app that supports QR code payment for the Thai market. Chinese tourists can use the Alipay app to scan the QR code generated by the Kasikorn app to complete purchases with Thai sellers.
“The majority of my customers are Chinese. We just began to use the Kasikorn app a few days ago and we hope it will make buying more convenient for Chinese customers,” said Piyanas, a seller at the Jatujak Market.
