Alipay+ and GHL enable cross-border payments in the Philippines

Mobile wallets include AlipayHK, KakaoPay, Touch ‘n Go, and Alipay.

Alipay+ has teamed up with GHL Systems Philippines to enable cross-border digital payments for local businesses, either via face-to-face or when making payments in e-commerce platforms.

The integration allows merchants to seamlessly accept cross-border digital payments from select Asian mobile wallets, Alipay and GHL Systems said in a joint press release.

Mobile wallets include AlipayHK (Hong Kong SAR), Kakao Pay (South Korea), Touch ‘n Go eWallet (Malaysia), and Alipay (mainland China). 

The move comes as tourist arrivals in the Philippines are expected to reach 8.21 million in 2024, far surpassing the 5.4 million tourists that visited the country in 2023 and the 7.1 million in 2019, GHL Philippines and Alipay said in the press release.

Alipay+ has made recent expansions across Southeast Asia, including Thailand and Nepal.
