This card comes with UnionPay's QuickPass service, which enables cardholders to make payments by tapping the card across 5 million QuickPass terminals worldwide. While Hong Kong-based and overseas expenses are settled in the local currency, expenses made in mainland China are settled in the Chinese currency.

• The uptake of alternative payments among Hong Kong consumers is gaining traction with the emergence of number of alternative payment instruments, such as MasterPass – a digital wallet introduced by MasterCard in July 2015. MasterPass enables customers to make online payments with an enrolled payment card using a mobile phone, and customers are not required to disclose card details with every purchase. Consumers can set up a MasterPass account by visiting MasterCard's website, and signing up with a participating bank such as Bank of East Asia, China Construction Bank, Dah Sing Bank and DBS Bank.
• To offer a more convenient and faster checkout, Visa launched its online payment service, Visa Checkout, in December 2015. This service allows users to pay for online purchases via their smartphones. Visa Checkout stores the user's personal information and uses a username and password for authentication, in order to streamline the ordering process. The service enables consumers to make purchases by using a smartphone, tablet, laptop or PC, and consumers are not required to leave the merchant's website to complete a transaction. PayPal had previously launched One Touch, a similar instant checkout service, in November 2015. One Touch can be activated from the PayPal website, and can be used to skip the login process at eligible websites to accelerate the payment process.
