Joint Stock Company Kaspi.kz operating the Kaspi.kz Super App for consumers and Kaspi Pay Super App for merchants today announced partnership with Alipay + to enable Kaspi.kz customers to pay using the Kaspi.kz Super App and QR code in China, Kazinform News Agency reports.

When travelling in China, Kazakhstanis no longer need to take cash or a card with them. Now, using the Kaspi.kz Super App, purchases in Chinese stores, cafes, taxis and more than 80 million points throughout China can be paid using QR code.

Many Kazakhstanis work, study and take vacations in China. We constantly receive feedback from our customers - how nice it would be to pay for purchases abroad as easily as in Kazakhstan. We are happy to announce, that in partnership with AliPay+, we have launched a new service. Now with the Kaspi.kz Super App our customers can pay for almost any goods at retail outlets throughout China. We thank AliPay+ for their partnership and each of our customers - for being with us!, said CEO and Co-founder of Kaspi.kz Mikhail Lomtadze

As Venetia Lee, Greater China General Manager of Ant International, said Alipay+ is thrilled to announce their partnership with the first and leading e-wallet Super App in Kazakhstan.

Together we will enable a seamless mobile payment experience on the Chinese mainland for the many Kaspi.kz mobile-savvy users, she said. “While this partnership will enhance the travel and shopping experience for Kaspi.kz users, we will continue to build on our innovative technology and service excellence to bring people and communities closer through travel, trade and commerce.”

To pay for purchases, Kaspi.kz customers just need to open the Kaspi.kz app, select the AliPay+ service and let the seller scan their QR code or alternatively buyers can scan the seller's QR code themselves.

Kaspi.kz’s mission is to improve people’s lives by developing innovative mobile products and services. To deliver upon this, the company operates a unique, two-sided Super App model – Kaspi.kz Super App for consumers and Kaspi Pay Super App for merchants.
