Starbucks in China welcomes Alipay acceptance
Alipay users in China can now use the mobile wallet to pay for coffee and food at all Starbucks locations in China, according to a report from Caixin.
The move comes 10 months after WeChat became a payment option inside Chinese Starbucks.
The Caixin report noted only three Starbucks in China accepted Alipay before the new deal, with the stores located near Alibaba and Alipay headquarters.
To celebrate the new partnership, Alipay is giving users a 5-yuan voucher (75 cents) for any order over 50 yuan.
