By April, Alipays availability will expand to more than 7,000 Walgreens locations across the United States.”This collaboration has particular significance for our Chinese customer population, who now has a new way to experience Walgreens,” Richard Ashworth, president of Operations with Walgreens, said in the statement.Operated by Ant Financial Services Group, an affiliate company of Chinas Alibaba Group, Alipay users can hail a taxi, book a hotel, buy movie tickets, pay utility bills, make appointments with doctors, or purchase wealth management products directly from within the app.In addition to online payments, Alipay is expanding to in-store offline payments both inside and outside China.”This is a key strategic partnership for achieving awareness in the United States, as Walgreens is one of the countrys largest drugstore chains,” said Wang Yulei, general manager of Alipay North America.According to Wang, Alipays in-store payment service is covering over 40 countries and regions across the world.A January report published by global measurement and data analytics company Nielsen showed that mobile payment has overtaken cash for the first time among Chinese tourists traveling overseas.More than two-thirds of Chinese tourists said they used their smartphones to pay abroad in 2018 and nearly 60 percent of surveyed merchants saw growth in both foot traffic and revenue, after adopting Chinese mobile payment methods, according to the report.var addthis_config = {“data_track_addressbar”:false};(For the latest China news, Please follow Peoples Daily on Twitter and Facebook)(Web editor: He Zhuoyan, Bianji)Add your comment/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var shortname=window.location.host;var disqus_shortname=;var disqus_identifier=;if (shortname==en.people.cn){disqus_shortname=enpeople;disqus_identifier = 9546350;}/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function() {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = // + disqus_shortname + .disqus.com/embed.js;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.Related readingAlibaba nets over 33 billion yuan in Q3 despite Chinese market concernsAlipay in 80% of stores at DavosAlipay allows people to send money to relatives in Beijing jailsOver 400 Chinese cities provide government services on AlipayWe RecommendA warmer winter for “Ice Boy” Wang Fuman
