Alipay coming soon to overseas shopping websites, Caixin says

Alipay, Alibaba Group’s online payment unit, plans to expand overseas by letting its users pay for the products they buy on foreign shopping websites directly through Alipay, news portal Caixin.com reported Wednesday, citing the company’s chief technology officer Li Jingming. The service will help foreign small business owners to attract more Chinese consumers as an increasing number of domestic online shoppers buy directly from overseas websites, Li was quoted as saying. The Chinese company is also considering expanding in the overseas tourism market, the report said.
