BEIJING, May 14 (Xinhua) -- The Suzhou Area of China (Jiangsu) Pilot Free Trade Zone (FTZ) joined hands with Bank of Suzhou to launch a new payment tool named Su-Pay with an aim to help short-term visitors from Japan and the Republic of Korea (ROK) enjoy the convenience of mobile payment.
Up to present, over 5,000 foreign-funded enterprises have settled in the Suzhou Area of Jiangsu FTZ. Most of them are Japanese-funded and ROK-funded enterprises, attracting Japanese and the ROK tourists to visit China.
Su-Pay is a financial tool invented specifically for the purpose of making mobile payment accessible to short-term Japanese and the ROK travelers in Suzhou. It offers them convenient domestic mobile payment channels to meet their need for fast and small payments.
It is learned that Su-Pay made great achievements in four major mobile payment model innovations through the combination of financial technology capabilities.
First of all, Su-Pay provides automatic and online domestic electronic account services for short-term Japanese and the ROK travelers in Suzhou with the help of the "living body recognition + OCR + anti-fraud + big data" ability of banks; second, users can top up their domestic accounts online by themselves through online foreign card acquiring service; third, users can link their Union Pay, WeChat and Alipay accounts to their bank cards online to proceed with mobile payment; fourth, it also features real-time monitoring and automatic control through its app's ability to analyze customers' behaviors.
In the future, Su-Pay will help the Suzhou Area of Jiangsu FTZ to build itself into an important hub of promoting the country's dual-circulation development. (Edited by Yang Yifan with Xinhua Silk Road, email@example.com)
