Ingenico Group said it launched a suite of payment methods for international e-commerce firms operating in the Chinese market.
Ingenico, based in Amsterdam, said that the company is working with Chinese mobile wallet platforms like Alipay, WeChat Pay and UnionPay.
"Our longtime presence in China means that we are perfectly positioned to partner with merchants wanting to access the truly local consumer market," Gabriel de Montessus, senior vice president, global online at Ingenico, said in a company release. "Our expertise here, combined with this new set of payment capabilities, will allow international markets to reach Chinese consumers that were previously difficult to access."
Ingenico said it is one of the first international payments firms integrate with WeChat Official Accounts and Mini-Programs, which allow the 1.1 billion WeChat users to complete purchases in the app without leaving the WeChat environment.
Ingenico said it offers an upgraded integration with Alipay to offer real-time payments on desktop and mobile. It also supports UnionPay's SecurePay and ExpressPay.
