Send money to your loved ones' Alipay app in an instant

You can now send money from anywhere to loved ones’ Alipay app in China. With 1,000,000,000 customers, Alipay leads the way in mobile financial services.

Here's how it works

After checking that the person you need to send money to has an Alipay account, simply:

  • Go to
  • Select China as the country you want to send to
  • Select Alipay when it asks you how you want to send
  • Enter the amount you want to send – our low fees and exchange rate will be clearly shown

Then, you'll be directed to another page to:

  • Create an account if you don't have one (you will be asked for your address, email, phone number)
  • Enter your recipient's details – choose from a list of people you've already sent to, or add a new person by entering their details: name, address and Alipay ID (this will be the telephone number that your receiver has registered with Alipay)
  • Pay. Choose how you want to pay – bank account, debit/credit card, SOFORT, INTERAC, POLI or iDEAL (web) – then confirm the amount.

As long as the person you are sending to has enabled their Alipay app to receive remittances, they should receive the amount sent within minutes. In cases where they have not activated their Alipay app for remittances, it might take up-to 72 hours for them to receive it. Plus, you and your recipient will be alerted by SMS and email when the transaction is complete.
