TOKYO, Sept. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- InComm Japan, a subsidiary of InComm, today announced it will become a payment processing partner for Alipay (支付宝). With this agreement, InComm adds Alipay to the services it offers to merchants. InComm plans to further expand its payment processing portfolio both domestically and overseas.
"Bringing Alipay into our processing network is an exciting milestone for InComm Japan," said Takumaro Arai, Vice President and General Manager, InComm Japan. "By signing this contract, InComm is bringing its payment capabilities to the forefront in Japan, adding even more value to its partners. With this huge step, we will be able to connect people, companies and networks more effectively than ever before."
The platform that InComm Japan provides includes tools that can manage system specifications and data transmissions as well as a call center, and these tools can be shared across other payment systems. As such, not only can InComm easily manage various payment services at once, it can also easily add another mobile barcode payment system to a merchant that is already using InComm's payment processing services. Furthermore, InComm's system can automatically determine which payment provider to route to. Merchants can settle with the payment company without having to choose the payment provider at the register and instead can simply scan the barcode shown to them by the consumer.
Alipay has over 520 million active users within China and provides offline payment services to Chinese consumers to buy from overseas merchants in over 40 countries and regions.
Alipay is powered by Ant Financial Services Group and is one of the largest mobile and online payment platforms in the world. InComm Japan currently handles other major mobile payment providers including WeChat Pay, LINE Pay and d-Barai, with the total reaching over 1 billion active users.
