U.S. airport duty-free retailer accepts Chinese electronic payment
A U.S. airport duty-free retailer has successfully deployed a cross-border payment solution to accept Chinese electronic payment via their smartphones in a bid to allure more Chinese tourists.
CITCON USA LLC, a leading cross-border mobile payment solution provider based in Silicon Valley, said in a statement that International Shoppes, a duty free and specialty retailer, has been ready to accept China's most preferred payment options, Alipay and WeChat Pay, to welcome and better service Chinese customers.
Chinese tourists are currently the largest spenders worldwide. Nearly three million traveled to the U.S. in 2016, placing China fifth in terms of visitor arrivals after Canada, Mexico, Britain and Japan. They spent USD 33 billion -- more than visitors from any other country.
A substantial growth of Chinese tourists was seen in key airport gateways in the United States.
