Powered by Alipay+, users of these popular Asian and European e-wallets and payment apps will enjoy a smooth and secure payment experience in Mongolia whenever they encounter the Alipay+ logo at participating merchants ranging from established hotel chains and restaurants to department store and cashmere outlets located throughout the country. Through the one-stop integration feature provided by Alipay+, these merchants are able to accept payments from these mobile payment apps on the same QR code interfaces displayed at physical stores, or by scanning the QR code in user’s app.

In addition, Alipay+ marketing solutions will also enable the local merchants the ability to create promotions, distribute digital coupons and discount offers directly reaching users of those e-wallet super apps in their respective markets – all at the same time to achieve better marketing efficiency and scalability.

Popular e-wallets and bank apps newly brought into Mongolia by Alipay+ include Alipay (Chinese mainland), AlipayHK (Hong Kong SAR, China), Tinaba (Italy), MyPB by Public Bank Berhad and Touch ‘n Go Digital (Malaysia), GCash (The Philippines), Changi Pay and OCBC Digital (Singapore), Kakao Pay, Naver Pay and Toss Pay (South Korea), and TrueMoney (Thailand).

More mobile payment service apps are expected to join in the months to come.

Ms. Erdenedelger Bavlai, First Deputy CEO of Khan Bank, noted, “Khan Bank was the first financial institution to sign an agreement with the Ant group back in 2021, enabling international payment process through Alipay. This time we are delighted to expand our partnership with the group and accept digital payment of users from eight countries and regions powered by Alipay+ on Khan Bank terminals for the first time in Mongolian market. This partnership is significant for not only Khan Bank but also for Mongolia as it contributes to the development of tourism besides securing seamless payment for tourists and travelers coming to Mongolia.”

Mr. Danny Chung, General Manager of Alipay+ Korea, Europe, Middle East and Mongolia, said, “Mongolia is one of the favorites destinations for international travelers. The partnership with Khan Bank marks a significant milestone for Alipay+ as Mongolia becomes a new destination to accept cross-border mobile payments, powered by Alipay+. This partnership is a testament to our commitment to bringing a convenient and secure digital payment experience for international travelers.” He added, “Together with Khan Bank we are connecting local businesses with international visitors, offering better travel experience to tourists and greater business opportunities and visibility for local merchants.”
