The New Payment Method Will Be Available on Request for All Chinese Citizens in Australia
Sydney, Australia, June 1, 2020, Nayax Australia is thrilled to announce that WeChat Pay and AliPay transactions are now available, and can be enabled upon request, on any VPOS Touch, Onyx or VPOS Fusion device in Australia. These payment methods will be available to any Chinese citizen or tourist with a bank account in China. WeChat Pay and Alipay are the 2 most widespread forms of payment in China. Nayax partnered with Supay Technology Pty Ltd to integrate these payment solutions.
Nayax payment devices enable dynamic and static QR code reading, thereby enabling use of these 2 payment apps. Customers using these apps are familiar with the process of scanning a QR code into their WeChat Pay or Alipay app. Nayax devices generate a dynamic code enabling quick, secure payments directly within the apps.
“As WeChat Pay and Alipay expand into different countries, we recognised the importance of providing additional cashless payment methods at every point of sale, including unattended retail,” says Dylan Winik, Managing Director, Nayax Australia. “Nayax is a pioneer in working with these popular applications ensuring that our operators’ machines can be accessible to all users.”
“Many of our vending machines are situated in public venues with high tourist traffic,” says Katrina McKiernan, Operations Manager, Gecko Vending. “It’s exciting to know that we’re now able to broaden our reach to Chinese tourists and citizens residing in Australia. Nayax continues to provide us with solutions that increase our bottom line and ensure business growth.”
“In keeping with our expansion goals to enable Chinese citizens residing or visiting countries other than China to pay with WeChat Pay, we worked closely with Nayax Australia and their banking network to enable QR code Wechat & Alipay acceptance on their VPOS Touch, Onyx and Fusion devices,” says Ian Zhang, COO, SuPay Technology Pty Ltd. “We were pleased with Nayax’s development and payment teams, ensuring that the integration is a complete success.”
Nayax offers a complete cashless solution including telemetry, management suite and consumer engagement tools, to unattended retail and self-serve markets. Nayax’s features help operators improve their day-to-day operations and long-term planning, while their marketing tools assist operators in transforming unattended machines into 24/7 retail stores with consumer engagement and IoT activities. As a global company, Nayax’s goal is to provide all payment methods in each region, ensuring consumers can pay with their preferred payment method, wherever they are located.
