Alipay face scan payment system introduced at Hong Kong International Airport

April 03, 2019


Abstract : China's leading mobile and online payment service Alipay announced that it had launched its face scan payment system in Hong Kong Internatio

BEIJING, April 3 (Xinhua) -- China's leading mobile and online payment service Alipay announced that it had launched its face scan payment system in Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) and Alipay users can enjoy the “smile to pay” service at the Duty Zero there starting from Tuesday.

Base on facial recognition technology, the system allows payments through only “a smile to the camera” and typing in phone number which not only cut cashier time by half but also save customers the trouble of dragging their phones out of the pocket, according to a staff of the Alipay.

HKIA is dedicated to building a smart airport using innovative tech for improving customer experience, said retail experience manager Lu Jieyi of Airport Authority Hong Kong, noting that now nearly 90 percent of HKIA’s hot stores are connected with Alipay system.

Alipay is mulling application of face scan payment in more scenarios in Hong Kong to benefit mainland customers, according to the Alipay staff.

It is noted that Alipay’s face scan payment, launched in 2017, has now covered more than 300 mainland cities. (Edited by Niu Huizhe, niuhuizhe@xinhua.org)
