AlphaPay, ACCEO Logivision to Increase Mobile Payment Technology for Retailers.

The new partnership will enable UnionPay, Alipay, and WeChat Pay for more than 6,500 store locations across Canada and U.S.

Vancouver, Canada (July 7, 2020) – AlphaPay, a North American leader in borderless payment technology, and ACCEO Logivision, a high-speed retail point-of-sale software provider, have announced a partnership to enable integration of UnionPay, Alipay, and WeChat Pay across ACCEO’s extensive reseller network.

This new collaboration will introduce the mobile wallet processing technology — with QR Code payment — at the point-of-sale and e-commerce to North American retailers of all sizes through one streamlined platform powered by AlphaPay.

This initiative will expand service to over 6,500 store locations and more than 20,000 point-of-sale terminals in North America, and incorporate a safer and more convenient method of linking the retail industry to Chinese customers. In 2019, B.C.-based AlphaPay announced the launch of national integration of its mobile payment technology into T&T Supermarket, Canada’s largest Asian supermarket chain, enabling 27 locations to better serve the growing Asian consumer demographic with the most convenient payment method.

“Our partnership with AlphaPay will empower customer loyalty, speed, and convenience for many of our users,” said Justine Terlon Bohonis, VP of ACCEO Logivision. “AlphaPay enables our retailers to offer Chinese payments to their customers as easily as traditional credit and debit transactions.”

AlphaPay’s foothold in the advanced payment industry is strengthened by collaborating with POS system solution experts, including King Corp — one of ACCEO’s resellers based in B.C. — which facilitates the inclusion-mobile payment technology to retailers, including T&T Supermarket.

“King Corp had the opportunity to work closely with AlphaPay to integrate a WeChat Pay, Alipay and UnionPay solution with a national Asian Supermarket,” said Tim Shein, President of King Corp. “The perceived demand is far greater than we had first anticipated.”

Economic Watch: China Carefully Returns to Work Amid the Anti-epidemic Battle

BEIJING, Feb. 10 (Xinhua) — Chinese authorities are carefully balancing efforts to control the novel coronavirus epidemic and minimize its impact on the economy as millions of people head back to work Monday after an extended holiday.

In a circular released over the weekend, the State Council, or China’s cabinet, urged efforts to protect workers from getting infected and meanwhile resume production as soon as possible.

Companies providing epidemic control supplies and services such as medical material and daily necessities are among the first groups to resume work and have already begun racing back to full capacity to fight the novel coronavirus outbreak.

The virus was first detected in central China’s city of Wuhan in December. Easy to transmit from person to person, it has kept people indoors and led to a sharp increase in demand for protective equipment like masks and goggles.

About 73 percent of the country’s mask production capacity had been recovered by Friday, according to Chen Da, an official with the National Development and Reform Commission, the country’s top economic planner. For medical masks, the rate has gone up to 87 percent.

Courier companies are also resuming service Monday as they are essential to meet people’s daily needs and guarantee the delivery of resources for epidemic control.

Logistics companies are expected to restore over 40 percent of their normal handling capacity by mid-February and continue to increase the capacity according to the development of the epidemic outbreak, according to the State Post Bureau.

For other sectors, production is recommencing in a steady but more gradual manner as both authorities and entrepreneurs are cautious over the novel coronavirus epidemic which has killed 908 and infected more than 40,000 on the Chinese mainland by Sunday.

In Shanghai, the latest official survey showed that more than 80 percent of the local manufacturing companies are willing to resume work, of which about 70 percent have already done so.

Meanwhile, 80 percent of Shanghai’s software and information service enterprises have returned to work, and 70 percent of their employees have chosen to work from home using telecommuting and video teleconference services to avoid infection.

Wu Jinzhong, head of eyewear maker Roring Industries in China’s southeastern Fujian Province, said only half of his 900 employees would resume work Monday.

“We advised workers outside the province not to rush back, while local employees need to be investigated whether they have traveled out of town in the past two weeks,” he said.

Wu said he has also increased spending to prevent the disease, including providing larger workspaces and essential protection materials like face masks.

To support small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in work resumption, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) has pledged to help with the supply and transportation of raw materials as well as protective gear like masks and body temperature detectors.

Local governments are encouraged to reduce or waive taxes and administrative fees on certain SMEs, increase subsidies to corporate training programs and extend the payment deadline for their electricity and gas bills to back them in harsh times, said the MIIT.

Likewise, local governments are ordered to take measures to help foreign-funded companies resume production and operation in an orderly manner.

Particular support shall go to large foreign investment projects, according to the commerce ministry, which called for coordinated efforts to solve their difficulties and minimize the impacts of the epidemic.

Now with the country heading back to work, many are confident that the potential economic blow brought by the national production halt is expected to be only a short-term, one-off hit against China’s solid economic foundation.

The epidemic might disturb economic activities in the first quarter of this year, but the economy is likely to steady shortly after the epidemic is contained, as the unleashing of pent-up demands will make up for previous weak economic performance, said Pan Gongsheng, vice governor of China’s central bank.

West Edmonton Mall Established Partnership with AlphaPay to accept WeChat Pay and Alipay

Vancouver, Canada (July, 2018) WeChat Pay and Alipay are mobile-based payment platforms that are widely used by the Chinese populace. West Edmonton Mall has teamed up with AlphaPay, an Alipay and WeChat pay service provider, to allow consumers to purchase admission to parks, pay for their stay at Fantasyland Hotel, or purchase WEM gift cards at Guest Services which can be used to make purchases within the Mall.

Several merchants in West Edmonton Mall have also begun using Alipay and WeChat pay at their point-of-sale. All retailers should consider it — Alipay has a “discover” function which allows travellers to locate merchants in the Mall that accept this form of payment. This solution also enables merchants to reduce friction in the check-out process, offer seamless payment experiences anywhere in the store, and engage consumers in new and innovative ways. The “Outbound Chinese Tourism and Consumption Trend: 2017 Survey” found that Chinese tourists use mobile payment overseas far more frequently than their non-Chinese counterparts, and over 90% Chinese tourists would use mobile payment overseas given the option.

Chinese tourists are big spenders, and good for business. The number of Chinese citizens traveling overseas has been steadily increasing year by year. According to statistics from the China National Tourism Administration, Chinese tourists travelled overseas on 131 million occasions in 2017, an increase of 7% from the previous year. Statistics from the International Tourism Association shows that the overseas spending by Chinese tourists last year was as high as $341 billion (CAD) in 2016, increasing 4.5% over the same period (year-on-year) and was ranked first among all tourists worldwide. With this growing trend, West Edmonton Mall believes that offering Chinese specific mobile payment options will deliver a superior customer experience for the changing behavior of today’s Chinese consumers.

As well, we’re told that several luxury retailers are expected to be moving into West Edmonton Mall in 2019, stay tuned for some big announcements.

ABOUT West Edmonton Mall

West Edmonton Mall has seen an increase in foot traffic with the addition of new retailers at a wide range of price points, and landlord Triple Five continues to target new brands and concepts to draw customers from the Edmonton market and beyond. The mall’s leasing team has been reaching out to international brands in an attempt to have them open in the centre, including some names currently not in the Canadian market. Already, the ‘main run’ in the shopping centre is said to see annual sales per square foot exceeding $1,200, and brands are taking notice.
