Your terminal software has been updated so you can now accept UnionPay cards. This lets you offer your customers even more choice in how they pay and opens your business to more customers from among the over 5.4 billion UPI cardholders globally1. UnionPay International (UPI) is one of the largest card schemes based in China and with the number of Chinese tourists visiting the UK now expected to double2 there are lots of reasons your business could benefit from accepting this card type.
Benefit from recent terminal updates
Cash-in on the UK’s booming tourism industry
The number of Chinese tourists is expected to soar over the next few years. These tourists are big spenders with over £586 million spent in the UK in one year by Chinese visitors3.
