Alipay and Westfield Sydney’s shopping festival is here
Westfield Sydney and Alipay are coming together.
With countless Australians using Alipay, an online and mobile payment platform from China, it was only a matter of time before it joined forces with some of Australia's favourite retailers.
For those who don't know, Alipay is billed as a lifestyle enabling app. Whether you want to buy movie tickets, pay your bills, go shopping or even make health appointments, you can do it all through the app.
Today marks the beginning of Australia's first 'Double 12' shopping festival - Alipay's signature event that gives shoppers exclusive discounts from a variety of stores (and partnering online retailers!).
Westfield Sydney customers will be the lucky few to reap the rewards, with the complex partnering directly with Alipay to produce the festival throughout December and January.
According to Alipay Australia's Country Manager, George Lawson, the partnership is the first of its kind in Australia, though the brand is hoping to expand due to its popularity with Chinese Australians and tourists.
“Our aim is to provide a seamless payment and travel experience to millions of Alipay users. We will continue to launch further integrated campaigns to an ever growing network of retailers who accept Alipay which will enhance our user experience and bring more value to our merchant network in the region,” said Lawson.
Shoppers keen to get their Christmas presents sorted should check out the discounts and rewards at Westfield Sydney, which is home to stores like H&M, David Jones, Swarovski and more. As the first Double 12 shopping festival, we're expecting sizeable rewards and opportunities.
