China is the biggest mobile payment market in the world, with mobile payments fast replacing cash as the preferred payment method for most urban residents. Chinese consumers are increasingly expecting the same payment methods to be offered abroad – nearly two-thirds of Chinese travellers say that having the option to pay using a mobile platform affects their shopping decisions overseas.
With growing Chinese visitor numbers, it’s becoming increasingly important that Kiwi businesses can accept Chinese mobile payments and know how to market to this audience. Over the next 5 years it’s expected New Zealand will host over 3.6 million Chinese visitors and by 2024 Chinese tourists are expected to spend $4.3 billion annually in NZ – is your business ready?
In this free webinar brought to you by Retail NZ, in association with Eftpos NZ and the South programme at Christchurch Airport, we’ll introduce you to China’s biggest mobile payments platform and show you how Chinese consumers use it to discover new brands and make payments instore. Learn how your business can start accepting payments from Chinese mobile platforms and how you can use these platforms to market directly to domestic and international Chinese consumers.
When: Tuesday 23rd Oct 2018, 2 pm – 2.30 pm
Speakers: Shane Tse, Payment Solution Specialist from Eftpos NZ and Ken Freer, Alibaba project director for Christchurch International airport.
