Unlimint has united with Alipay+ for the expansion of its global payments portfolio.
As part of the collaboration, Unlimint will gain a boost to its global offering and open new opportunities for eCommerce and online businesses worldwide.
Unlimint’s Chief Customer Officer, Irene Skrynova, commented: “We are extremely pleased to partner with Alipay+ and add new payment capabilities to our unique solution. This is a major step on our journey of strengthening our APAC offering and powering up cross border payments for millions of people in the region.
“In the past years we have focused on building essential strategic partnerships with alternative payment methods worldwide, so that we could ensure, that we can successfully support our existing and new customers expansion needs around the globe, on top of providing international credit and debit card processing via our direct acquiring partnerships with Visa, Mastercard, JCB, UnionPay, Diners Club and Discover.
“Alipay+ will allow us to open new doors of opportunity for merchants all over the globe and to prepare them for whatever the “payment world of tomorrow” brings their way.”
Furthermore, the deal means that Unlimint’s new and existing merchants from industries like digital commerce, e-learning, gaming and SaaS, will now gain access to a plethora of e-wallets and bank apps from across Asia, allowing them to enhance the firm’s customer services and streamline existing payment management operations.
According to research, by 2025 the volume of non-cash transactions in the APAC region is forecasted to surpass the one trillion mark. Between 2021 and 2025, the number of mobile wallets in use in Asia Pacific only is projected to more than double.
A recent study by Deloitte stated that the next three years will be the “golden period” for digital trade development for the APAC region, and that the Southeast Asian market ranks among the top three of all sales markets in Asia Pacific countries.
“Alipay+ solutions help merchants innovate, connecting them to global customers, through their favourite wallet or banking app, providing both payment and marketing services,” added Piero Candela, head of Business Development in Europe at Ant Group.
“We value our collaboration with Unlimint, an acquirer who has successfully integrated its payment platform with relevant European digital merchants, with a strong attention to the entire shopping experience.
“Alipay+ will help Unlimint further expand merchant access to multiple leading payment methods, by a single and simple integration through a unified payment and marketing solution.”
