United Airlines adds new payment method – Alipay – to their Chinese language website.  Alipay is the largest online payment platform in China with over 400 million registered users. 

Jingming Li, President of Alipay U.S., stated: “We are very pleased to partner with United and help them make online booking from China a hassle free experience. By enabling the option to use China’s most trusted and secure payment system, Chinese travelers using United’s website can expect the safe, easy, and consistent experience they have come to expect, while avoiding any currency barriers.”

United has been serving the Chinese market for almost 30 years.  It is interesting to see new payment methods develop across the globe and how the airlines are adapting to the changes.
