Chinese Payment Platforms - Industry Resources

Unlock the Spend Potential of Chinese Travellers

According to recent consumer research by Nielsen, Outbound Chinese Tourism and Consumption Trends, 91 per cent of Chinese travellers indicated they would show greater willingness to spend and shop if overseas merchants accept Chinese mobile payment. Therefore if Queensland's tourism operators accept Chinese mobile payment they increase the ability to maximise visitor spend from Chinese travellers.

For tourism operators in Queensland, offering UnionPay, Alipay and WeChat Pay to Chinese travellers will:  
  1. make them feel welcome, 
  2. provide payment convenience, and 
  3. encourage more expenditure. 

More importantly, all three payment platforms provide marketing opportunities for tourism operators to directly target Chinese travellers. A number of resources have been developed to help Queensland businesses maximise the spend potential of Chinese Travellers via Chinese Payment Platforms.
