Alipay launches new service in HK, Macau

Alipay, the online payment unit of Alibaba Group, said on Tuesday it has launched a convenient payment service to allow people in Hong Kong and Macau to shop more conveniently as it steps up efforts to attract more overseas users.

Bank of China credit card holders in Hong Kong and Macau will be able to shop at Taobao Marketplace and Tmall with a verification code sent to their mobile phones as well as the credit cards’ card number and validity date, saving them the trouble of opening an online payment service at bank outlets.
