Electronic payment specialist, The PPRO Group, will collaborate in Europe with Alipay, China’s leading third-party online payment service, to offer new payment options for online shoppers of AliExpress, a global online marketplace for consumers to buy directly from Chinese businesses.

Alipay provides secure, trustworthy and convenient online and mobile payment services. Through the collaboration with The PPRO Group, shoppers are offered familiar alternative payment methods at the checkout pages.

Alipay provides a safe and secure payment service for AliExpress, which has seen steady organic growth in European markets. As a select European partner to Alipay, The PPRO Group will now manage payments using credit or debit card alternatives for AliExpress shoppers in Europe. The phased rollout, which commenced in January 2015, will focus on the three most important alternative payment systems in Germany and the Netherlands - giropay, iDeal and Sofortüberweisung - all three of which The PPRO Group already collaborates closely with.

Co-founder and CEO of The PPRO Group, Philipp Nieland, commented: “We are extremely proud to have been chosen as a European partner for Alipay in Europe. It’s a major milestone for us as a company and offers us the opportunity to work alongside such a reputable and successful organisation. We have seen a clear move towards not only simpler and faster payment methods but credit and debit card alternatives in Europe over the last couple of years and welcome the chance to facilitate Alipay and AliExpress’ success in this flourishing market.”

Griffin Peng, Head of Business Development for Alipay in Europe said: “We are excited to work with The PPRO Group to continue our efforts in the region. The PPRO Group’s proven expertise in delivering alternative payments to consumers across the world, along with its ability to swiftly and flexibly roll-out new services, will support our vision and commitment to providing AliExpress customers in Europe with their preferred payment methods in a secure and convenient environment, whatever country they’re in, or device they’re using.”
