There is no monthly fee for accepting the mobile wallets, just a transaction fee that varies between providers. Merchants are also protected from chargebacks for WeChat Pay and Alipay transactions, as opposed to when a customer uses a credit card directly.
Worldpay and Barclaycard Business don’t publicise their pricing, so it’s necessary to request a quote from them.
On a touchscreen card terminal like PAX A920 (used by Elly POS), you may have to add an app like GlobePay to accept Alipay and WeChat Pay. If this is possible with your package, you can either display QR codes on its touchscreen or scan the customer’s QR code with the scanner built into the smart POS terminal.
Although all Android terminals can technically run such an app, the merchant service provider still controls what’s available on the terminal. You might have to ask if they can integrate the mobile wallets on their terminal if it’s not there already.
After account verification, GlobePay also lets you print off WeChat Pay or Alipay QR codes to display on your premises.
Alternatively, you can download an app like Pomelo Pay on your smartphone, create transactions in the app and generate an Alipay or WeChat Pay QR code on the phone.
Adyen, Shopify and Stripe are big online payment platforms allowing you to add the digital wallets to your online checkout. This requires going through some verification steps in the ecommerce account for the individual solution. In Shopify’s case, you register with GlobePay and connect that account to your online store.
