This mobile payment service that launched as a payment processor for the websites owned by Alibaba has over 450 million users worldwide and is expected to hit the US market starting with companies using First Data Clover products.

One of the leading mobile payment services currently operating in China, namely Alipay, is now one big step closer to its arrival in the United States. Thanks to its recent deal with First Data, Alipay will offer its future US customers the chance to pay for goods and services at an impressive number of local business clients.

According to the official press release, "First Data will implement Alipay at the point-of-sale for its four million U.S. business clients. The rollout will begin with First Data’s clients that use the Clover suite of solutions." According to Alipay North America's president, the immediate goal is to provide "reliable payment services" to the over four million Chinese consumers that arrive in America each year.

Back in 2016, the two companies implemented Alipay "in select high-end and specialty retail locations in California and New York." Introduced as a digital wallet for Alibaba's clients, Alipay has grown to have 450 million users at this time.
