The tools will grant online business access to the Chinese market.
Ingenico’s new partners include mobile payment platforms, Alipay, WeChat Pay and UnionPay.
Ingenico is one of the first international payment service providers (PSP) to support all use cases for WeChat Pay, including the capability to integrate into WeChat Offical Accounts and Mini-Programmes.
Additionally, Ingenico offers an upgraded Alipay integration to its clients, enabling businesses to reach a majority of online consumers in China, while providing real-time payments on desktop and mobile devices.
Through Ingenico, merchants can also offer Chinese Yuan (CNY) to consumers via UnionPay’s SecurePay and ExpressPay solutions.
Gabriel de Montessus, senior vice-president, Global Online at Ingenico Group, said: “Our long-time presence and activity in China means we are perfectly positioned to partner with merchants wanting to access the truly local consumer market. Our expertise here, combined with this new set of payment capabilities, will allow international merchants to reach Chinese consumers that were previously difficult to access.
“Our merchants will be able to offer all the relevant local Chinese payment methods in local currency denomination as part of their digital experience, which will help increase conversion.”
