Alipay, the mobile payments solution operated by Ant Financial Services Group, today provides some 450 million active users in China with an entire range of financial services. Now, in order to stay in step with its app-holders visiting Europe, Alipay will cooperate among others with BNP Paribas, the European leader in Cash Management, so as to enable the 16 million Chinese tourists who travel outside Asia every year to pay for their purchases with their Alipay mobile app at all partnering stores. Initially available in France, this service will be progressively extended to the rest of Europe.

By partnering with Alipay, BNP Paribas is clearly demonstrating the Group’s determination both to provide every assistance to retailers looking to expand their sales and to be the bank for all innovative players.
