Vancouver, Canada – (Dec 21th, 2019) AlphaPay, a major influencer in the borderless payment technology company, announced that it has launched a partnership with Telus World of Science (“Science World”) to add world’s leading mobile payments technology Alipay and WeChat Pay to Science World powered by AlphaPay. This new payment technology enabled mobile payment users to pay by scanning its QR code on Alipay or WeChat Pay at Science World.
For the past generation, Science World British Columbia has been widely respected throughout BC and across Canada as a vibrant centre for informal learning. Built for the 1986 World’s Fair, Science World is the modern-looking landmark building at the east end of False Creek that looks like it has a giant mirrored ball on top. Inside that ball is the OMNIMAX Theatre where visitors can see terrific films on the world’s largest domed movie screen. Science World is full of entertaining and scientific displays and activities. It’s highly recommended for young children (preschool and elementary aged), but also for people of all ages (and especially those accompanying young children). Higher volume of visitors travelling from overseas drives in the demand of Chinese mobile payment acceptance for Science World because of its popularity among Chinese families.
It’s a shared mission for AlphaPay, Alipay and WeChat Pay to help hundreds of millions of Chinese families with preferable payment method when travelling overseas with their children. AlphaPay is proud to assist in the process of offering Science World the payment method with which they are most comfortable. Chinese visitors are expected to be up 40% in 2020 compared with 2019. A recent Nielsen report also revealed that 91% of Chinese tourists travelling abroad would likely spend more if merchants accepted Chinese mobile payment channels.
The partnership also sees Science World automatically enrolled in Alipay’s merchant listings, which instantly increases awareness of its location to visitors by pushing notifications on their phones where they can see as activities and exhibitions, business hours, get directions and even purchase coupons to Science World. AlphaPay is excited to be working with Science World to bring future to science. This partnership will enhance Science World appeal to Chinese mobile users by providing them with familiar payment experience they enjoy at home and by completing transactions in Chinese Yuan.
