Alipay has made some grades in HongKong amid the trend of tech giants exploring opportunities overseas. According to the official statement, AlipayHK, which is a standalone tailor-made mobile payment app for Hongkongers, gained 2 million users and provided cross-border payment service to 50,000 merchants. The next breakthrough foreseen by Alipay is to tap into the adoption of public transportation services in a way to boost the user base. However, as the number of Chinese tourists rises, it’s very likely there will be more merchants around the world accepting Chinese payment apps.
