Ali­pay ties up with Thai bank

Global Times US Edition - - BIZUPDATE -

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.
