With Alipay and WeChat Pay by Banque Edel, attract new customers

Chinese customer online purchases have increased tremendously in 2021, especially on European or French websites, with billions of euros spent. A strong growth is expected until at least 2026.

In stores, sales are still relevant due to Chinese expatriates living in France and using their mobile payment solution. Since the beginning of the pandemic, our partners have resumed the promotion of their products though virtual supports and video meetings with personal shoppers.

In that context, being able to provide to your Chinese customers online payments with their favorite payment solution is a genuine opportunity to increase sales, especially in luxury, cosmetics and local produce sectors.

By implementing Alipay & WeChat Pay by Banque Edel, merchants offer to their clients a familiar and reassuring customer experience that should have a great impact on sales. They also benefit of a stronger visibility and a privileged relationship with users through their app (shop is localised inside the app and promotional campaigns are also relayed in it).
