Visa – a world leader in digital payments – has extended its support of Cambodians visiting China through partnerships with Tencent and Alipay, two of the country's leading internet and technology companies.
The partnerships allow travellers to add their Visa cards to digital wallets including Weixin Pay – also known as the Chinese local wallet of WeChat Pay – and Alipay.
International tourists can link their Visa cards to accounts on WeChat Pay and Alipay wallets to make purchases at millions of stores and merchants – whether for dining, transportation, shopping, daily spending and more – in Mainland China.
Consumers can enjoy multiple payment methods such as scanning QR codes, presenting payment codes and in-app payments, enhancing the purchasing experience of Cambodians in China, both online and offline.
And international Visa cards are now accepted at thousands of merchant locations in more than 400 cities across Mainland China.
They are also accepted by China’s leading online merchants and on mobile apps, including Taobao, Ctrip, Didi and China Railway 12306, among many others.
“Visa is glad to join hands with Tencent and Alipay to provide convenient payment experiences to Cambodians travelling to China.
"China is one of Cambodia’s key corridors for businesses and consumers, and as a global network, we want to bring the full value of Visa’s security, reliability and convenience to Cambodian travellers.
"Visa has been in China for nearly 40 years, and aims to provide cardholders with whatever payment method they like, wherever they are,” said Ivana Tranchini, Visa Country Manager for Cambodia.
