Oxford Properties launches WeChat Pay and Alipay across its Canadian Retail Portfolio making the Group's shopping centres the premier destination for Chinese customers

TORONTO, Dec. 4, 2017 (Canada NewsWire via COMTEX) --

Customers can now use their WeChat Pay and Alipay mobile wallets across Oxford Properties Group's eleven Canadian shopping centres, affiliated hotels and at other travel partners. The two Chinese mobile payment services work by linking with users' debit and credit cards, providing a platform for peer-to-peer transfers and enabling purchasing in renminbi; together the apps have over 1.2 billion active users.

Oxford piloted WeChat at Yorkdale earlier this year and received overwhelming positive feedback from customers and retailers alike.

"Our Chinese retail customers have told us that tourists, students and newcomers alike want access to their mobile wallets in-mall," said Brad Jones, Head of Retail, Oxford Properties Group. "At Oxford we pride ourselves on delivering the best service to our customers in every interaction every day, and are excited to have been the first in the industry in Canada to deliver seamless mobile payment options to our Chinese customers."
