Mobile Payment: China leads the way
Helpful by stander
Chinese invented paper money as cash, now they invented cashless society.
And there are people keep saying the Chinese never invent but copy.
Lol and Apple is bragging about Apple Pay
China is QR ocean, you may find QR anywhere.
One thing is, US living in credits, with mobile pay, you need to have cash in advance more likely as in cash.
now really, you just need to link it with your credit cards or debit cards.
It's good & convenience for local but not for tourists
Even the street vendors take wechat pay.
Risks of financial crises are limited by the usage of mobile payment, Apple and Google are copying from AliPay and WeChat pay.
I am also a cashless person.The other kind..
When China is using cash, people say: what?? We are using Visa and Mastercard! When China is going cashless, people say: what? It's lack of privacy and freedom!
When my phone was out of battery in China, I think it was a disaster...
But luckily I can rent a portable power bank from a convenient store, and returned it to another convenient store
I am so happy to see how developed and clean China is. That can only be by the hard work and resourcefulness of her people. All the best, from the US.
cashless life in China is not a challenge, using cash in China is a big challenge
however it? still illegal to refuse cash
When I go back to Canada eventually, I don't know how I will survive without wechat.
This technology makes the U.S. looks like third world country.
Rent a bike for 1RMB an hour? Damn that's 14 cents! I want to live in china now
My friends been to China last week and told me a story : he went to a supermarket was ready to pay by cash but the staff looked at him with shocking face but still give him the change back . It’s Super brand new money! He said the cash not been used for too long . And it’s brand new lol
i have experienced the same
It's funny the Chinese are the ones that invented (paper) money and now they are going to be the first ones to get rid of it.
And Americans keep screaming that China is stealing everyone else’s ideas and technologies.
I don't like to use cash because I have to wash my hands every time.
And I'm living in this third world country called "America." Very SAD!!!
Meanwhile in India the shopkeeper is giving me toffees for the amount of change he is supposed to give me
HAHAHAHA ! True that
krishna jadav hahahaha in Egypt it is gum usually but just for change not a big amount of money
Mobile payment has been spread all over China, including remote countryside and rural areas.
Been to China, it's amazing how far ahead they are
yeah its true, but the infrastructure is still poor
@21 savage infrastructure still poor? mate I'm a Canadian who's lived in the USA, Australia and China. China's infrastructure and public transport are already way ahead of the ones in Canada, USA, and Australia.
Larry B India infrastructure much better than China
@Avdesh Alvaraz not sure if trolling or retarded. Either way, I've also been to Mumbai and New Delhi and there is no comparison. My suggestion is travel more and see for yourself.
Larry B come to Gurgaon. Gurgaon better than any China city. pleas come and see we just like euroope america .
My Great India ???? ???? ???? Europe America is outdate already
wow this country is beyond future compare to UK, sorry my beloved UK but I have to be honest time is changing now
While visa or mastercards takes 3 or 4 percent of your payment. Wechat only takes 0.3 percent or even none to small business. That is why this is so popular in China
China is so many years ahead of all of us... kicks ass! love it!
I've been leaving my wallet at home for a couple of years now.
Your Chinese is so good, I’m really struggling to learn this language
