What does the launch of the new Alipay solution mean for Shopify merchants?

Alipay has just expanded their new payment gateway solution for Shopify merchants in Hong Kong, US and Canada, connecting merchants to 1.2 billion Asian digital wallets users.

These digital wallets users include those using Alipay (Mainland China), AlipayHK (Hong Kong S.A.R), GCash (the Philippines), and Touch ‘n Go (Malaysia).

How will this work for Shopify merchants who are using Chinafy?

As is standard with any Shopify site -

Chinafy generates a version of your site for China which we then optimize for visitors from Mainland China, and leaves the ‘global’ version of your site alone.

Keeps the two versions of your site in sync

A side-by-side comparison of a Shopify site's loading experience outside vs. inside China before Chinafy.

No technical work is required on your side to ‘enable’ Alipay’s wallets. Customers can simply elect to pay using those wallets on your Shopify site once installed.

Chinafy will similarly process and reflect those updates on the Chinafy version of your site.
