What is Alipay?

Alipay is an eWallet payment method, a secure place where your shoppers can store funds to be used online.

It is available to merchants who use both the Direct and Hosted integration model.

There are two ways for a shopper to make a payment:

  1. The default option is for the shopper to use their mobile device (phone, tablet, and so on) to scan the QR code that appears on the Alipay payment page. This is the most popular payment method, used by the majority of shoppers.

  2. An alternative is for the shopper to log in to the Alipay payment page using their Alipay credentials.

You can find out more about Alipay in the Alternative Payments Guide.
