Motion Pay brings Alipay acceptance to Canadian merchants

Alipay has announced that its partnership with Motion Pay Technology Inc. has resulted in a significant number of merchants across Canada enabling Alipay acceptance at point-of-sale, according to a press release.  

Through the partnership, Alipay is now accepted in all major Canadian cities including Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal, Ottawa, Banff, among others, and across several categories including retail, restaurants, hospitality, and luxury.

"We are thrilled with the success of our partnership with Motion Pay to date, which has played an instrumental role in our growth across Canada this past year," Souheil Badran, president of Alipay, Americas, said in the release. "As our first Canadian partner, Motion Pay has helped us to reach critical mass in acceptance points across Canada. We look forward to continuing our relationship and enabling even more Canadian brands and retailers to connect with the growing number of Chinese consumers seeking items they can’t find at home, and simplifying payments by offering Alipay's familiar method."
