More than 450 million people globally use mobile payment service Alipay and soon North American businesses will be able to accept it as well. First Data will implement Alipay, the world’s largest online and mobile payment platform, at the point-of-sale for its four million U.S. business clients, beginning with First Data’s clients that use the Clover suite of solutions.


“Our goal is to extend reliable payment services to the over four million Chinese consumers that visit North America every year,” said Souheil Badran, President, Alipay North America. “Extending our partnership with a premier partner like First Data provides the merchants with a seamless integration and access to consumers who want to continue paying with their lifestyle mobile app.”
