Alipay was made available for Chinese tourists in over 100,000 shops worldwide during the eight-day National Day holiday that started on Oct. 1, People’s Daily Overseas Edition reported on Oct. 9.

One way for Chinese tourists to enjoy a preferential price is to get tax refunds via Alipay. For example, tourists can immediately get a 12-19 percent refund in Europe just by offering their phone number, passport information, and scanning a QR code.

At present, duty-free shops at 16 airports in the world have launched the service for Chinese tourists. Tourists from other countries were amazed at the rapid development of China’s Internet technology.

A manager at the duty-free King Power shop in Thailand noted that Chinese consumers are inclined to use Alipay nowadays, as it is really convenient, and other countries should learn from them in this respect.

Apart from Thailand, many countries like Japan, Finland, and New Zealand all made Alipay available for Chinese tourists to improve their consumption experience in dining, shopping, and accommodation during the holiday break.
