Alipay, Alibaba Group’s third-party payment service, will tap into the taxi payment market in Beijing, the official Xinhua news agency reported Thursday. About 5,000 Beijing taxis will be involved in the initial phase. The service allows Alipay e-wallet subscribers to pay their fare using a bar code provided by taxi drivers. The process takes no more than five seconds, the report said.
