Touch ‘n Go Group, via TNG Digital Sdn Bhd, announced today the expansion of its cross-border payment capabilities to Mainland China. This capability was made available through its collaboration with Alipay+, a suite of global cross-border digital payments and marketing solutions operated by Ant Group.
Through its partnership with Alipay+, Touch ‘n Go eWallet is the first Malaysian eWallet to be approved for payments in Mainland China. Malaysians can now enjoy the same seamless payment experience at a wide range of merchants across Mainland China, including food & beverage chains and convenience stores, and transact in Ringgit Malaysia via Touch ‘n Go eWallet.
We expect our users to experience the same seamless convenience of using Touch ‘n Go eWallet in Mainland China as how they would in Malaysia, and with the assurance that their transactions are safe and secure. We will continue to grow our acceptance to more markets in time to come.TNG Digital Sdn Bhd, CEO, Alan Ni.
Over the past six months, Alipay+ has been gaining ground in markets including Southeast Asia, South Korea and Japan, connecting local and regional merchants with various digital payment methods.
Mainland China has become the latest destination for users of Malaysia’s Touch ‘n Go eWallet in a drive to enhance a seamless and convenient payment experience for international visitors ahead of the Hangzhou Asian Games.
Apart from Mainland China, all Touch ‘n Go eWallet users can also make cross border payments wherever the Alipay+ QR code is displayed such as in Japan, South Korea, Singapore, United Kingdom, Italy, France, and Germany.
