Ant Group raises transaction limits in China for foreign users 

Ten partner wallets can now enjoy the increased limits.

Ant Group has raised the single transaction limit for international users using its cross-border payments in China to $5,000.

The annual cumulative transaction limit has also been raised to $50,000, from just $10,000 previously, the payments giant said in a press release.

The higher limits for mobile payment transactions are in line with new guidelines released by the central bank and China’s State Council. New policies apply to Ant's twin cross-border mobile payment solutions.
