China loves shopping online. In 2019, Alibaba’s Singles’ Day sales hit a record USD38.4 billion in one day!
This is partly due to the widespread adoption of digital wallets in China. However, mobile remittances are only just starting to take off. In 2019, China received USD68.4 billion in remittances, but only a fraction of them (USD4.5 billion) are digital, according to estimates by Statista.
Enter Alipay. The world’s leading digital lifestyle platform was first introduced in 2004 as an escrow service to address the issue of trust between online buyers and sellers in the early days of e-commerce in China.
Users can link their bank accounts to the app and use their smartphones to make transactions, offline or online. Today, it serves more than 1.2 billion users worldwide with its global e-wallet partners.
Alipay also allows its users to receive remittances from their loved ones abroad conveniently, including in partnership with Tranglo.
- Secure: When money is sent to an Alipay user, it is checked not just by Alipay’s system, but also Tranglo’s.
- Swift: Instantly receive money anywhere, anytime.
- Savvy: Always receive the full amount with no charges to the receiver!
