Wirecard, National Bank of Greece bring Alipay to Greece

Thursday 13 April 2017 | 10:11 CET | News
Payment services provider Wirecard was contracted by the National Bank of Greece (NBG) to bring the Alipay payment method to Greece. The cooperation is possible due to a mobile app Wirecard developed with Alipay that enables mobile payment acceptance technology on the European market for QR code-based alternative payment methods. The deal will enable Greek merchants who operate in significant tourist attractions in the country to be able to offer Alipay as a new payment method at the point of sale (POS) for their Chinese customers.
