DaraPay Announces Strategic Partnership with Chinese Tech Giant- Alipay

Share

DaraPay, the leading mobile E-wallet and payment service providers, today announces its partnership with Alipay, world’s leading payment and lifestyle platform operated by Ant Financial. With this partnership, Chinese tourists can scan and pay with their Alipay app at all DaraPay merchants with more than 3,000 outlets in Phnom Penh, Kandal, Kampong Cham, Siem Reap and Battambang province.

Alipay serves over 1.2 billion users together with its regional partners and is the preferred payment method of Chinese tourists1.

Through this strategic partnership, the two partners are looking to integrate their respective systems with one another and offer the market a flexible, on-demand digital payment solution through which Chinese tourists can conveniently use during their visit to Cambodia.

With the system now in place, Alipay users are no longer required to withdraw cash or perform cross-app money transfer to make payments across the Kingdom. They can simply complete their purchases by scanning the special QR code available at DaraPay-enabled merchant partners.

“We are excited to work with Alipay,” said Mr. Phok Ratha, General Manager of DaraPay. “Through this collaboration, Alipay users can now benefit from the convenience, simplicity, and security of our integrated system and merchant partners while enjoying their vacation in Cambodia.”

With DaraPay's more than 3,000 merchant partners, finding a store or service that accepts this integrated mobile payment should not be a trouble. Whether it is a transaction at a restaurant, café, and supermarket or payment for services such as ride-hailing, hotel, and entertainments, Chinese tourists can truly benefit by choosing the services of DaraPay’s merchant partners. Alipay customers who love shopping for apparel or trying out all types of delicious food can enjoy with the most popular Chinese tourist malls: Sorya Center Point or The Olympia Mall located at the heart of Phnom Penh City.

The future bodes well for the two partners with the number of Chinese tourists visiting the Kingdom continues to grow. Last year, statistically the nation welcomed over 1.7 million Chinese tourists, and the number is expected to rise to 3 million by 2020 and 5 million by 2025.

As the number of Chinese tourists to the Kingdom continues to surge, and following its strategic road map, DaraPay is on track with its collaboration with leading fintech platform Alipay.

Mr. Ratha continued, "The partnership with Alipay is an important step that takes DaraPay to the next level of our business development. We do not only collaborate with local businesses but we are also actively working with international partners as part of our new strategic roadmap to enter a new horizon. In the future, we are looking to collaborate with other international partners to bring better and more innovative services to cater to our customers both the locals and international ones.”

Ipsen’s palovarotene clinical program in fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva reaches prespecified interim analysis futility criteria24.1.2020 09:00:00 EETPress release
