Global internet media company Travelzoo Asia Pacific has announced a new collaboration with Alipay, an online payment system, to its Local Deals business in China.
Alipay is by far the largest online payment system in China, with more than 700 million registered accounts. The strategic cooperation will make Alipay the preferred payment option on Travelzoo Lv You Zu.
Mr. Jason Yap, CEO of Travelzoo Asia Pacific said, “We have gained rapid momentum of our Local Deals business in China since its launch. Our continuous focus on quality in everything we do has fueled the demand for high quality and value-for-money offers, which sets us apart in the crowded marketplace.
“Our collaboration with Alipay will facilitate smooth and easy transactions for our discerning subscribers.
“In addition, it will also give us strategic access to Alipay’s large base of Chinese urban professionals. We are confident that this cooperation will help us penetrate deeper into China and position ourselves to further capitalize on one of the world’s fastest growing e-commerce markets,” he added.
Subscribers now have access to a payment platform to purchase the most outstanding restaurants, spas and getaway deals. The two companies will collaborate through a series of joint marketing efforts to enhance incremental transactions of Travelzoo Lv You Zu Local Deals amongst Alipay’s vast user base.
