Jet Park Hotels is pleased to announce that they now accept Alipay payments at all 3 of their hotels including Auckland Airport, Rotorua and Hamilton. Alipay is the world’s largest payment platform and has 600 million active users.
Alipay is an alternative to cash or credit cards and can be used to pay for accommodation and food and beverages. China is now New Zealand’s second largest visitor market with around 450,000 visitors every year spending over $1.2 billion. 60% (and increasingly more) of these visitors are free, independent travellers who research and book their own trip.
China is fast becoming a cashless society and they prefer using Alipay. What’s more, they like to use Alipay when they go on holiday too - it’s simple, they trust it. Every Alipay user will open the app four times a day (on average) while they are in New Zealand. So they are more likely to find and spend with a business on Alipay than one who is not.
