OCBC taps Alipay+ to enable customers to pay in China, Korea, Malaysia with digital app
Payments will be made directly from customers’ OCBC SG bank accounts.
OCBC has become the first Singaporean bank to enable customers to avail Alipay+ through its OCBC app.
Under the partnership, customers of OCBC will be able to pay at millions of merchant stores in Alipay+’s global ecosystem using their OCBC digital app.
Payments will be made directly from their OCBC Singapore bank accounts, and there is no need for OCBC customers to download, set up, and fund third-party payment apps.
Beginning 8 September, Singapore customers travelling to Malaysia and South Korea have already enjoyed the service.
From 22 September, OCBC Singapore’s customers will be able to pay through their OCBC apps in mainland China, wherever Alipay+ was accepted.
