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.”

T&T Supermarket Now Accepting Alipay and WeChat Pay

Oct. 04, 2019 (AlphaPay, RICHMOND, British Columbia) — AlphaPay, the leading cross-border payments solution provider, today announces the national integration of its mobile payment technology into T&T Supermarket (“T&T”), Canada’s largest Asian supermarket chain. With this new technology, T&T now accepts transactions from mobile-based payment platforms used widely by Canada’s Chinese consumers – Alipay and WeChat Pay – at the point-of-sale through one streamlined platform powered by AlphaPay. This integration will enable T&T’s 27 locations across the country to better serve the growing Asian consumer demographic, and provide the most convenient payment method to their customers.

“We are thrilled to have the support of T&T, Canada’s largest Asian foods market chain, as they roll out our AlphaPay solution in retail locations across the country. The tourism market from China has been growing significantly over the last decade in Canada, something that’s been further accentuated today as we find ourselves in the midst of Golden Week – a semi-annual Chinese national holiday,” said Jason Gu & Albert Sun, Founders of AlphaPay. “We are excited at the potential impact and uptake of AlphaPay, and the prospect of providing a seamless technology that solves the inefficiencies and numerous other challenges posed by cross-border spending.”

AlphaPay’s integrated payment solution enables merchants and consumers to quickly and conveniently transact secure, encrypted payments. Consumers present the dynamic payment QR code of their Alipay or WeChat Pay mobile app at the time of purchase, which is then scanned by T&T via the POS scanner, instantly completing payment. Funds are debited directly from the customer’s Chinese bank account, removing all processing issues that are typically associated with cross-border payments, spending limitations and exchange rates.

“Our customers, both local and visiting, are looking for convenience and all the amenities of home when they visit a T&T Supermarket,” said Tina Lee, CEO T&T Supermarkets.  “This new technology provides a seamless checkout experience, and one that is familiar and easy for them, so they can worry less about their payments and focus more on their meals.”

The rise in overseas travel from China and spending by Chinese consumers – as high as $341 billion CAD in 2018 alone – emphasizes the impact of AlphaPay’s all-in-one payment solution on the Canadian market. WeChat alone has over 1.2 billion users globally, roughly 2 million of which reside in Canada.
