The mobile payment service Huawei Pay has formed a new partnership with Aleta Planet and UnionPay International (UPI)
The deal sees the introduction of a mobile payment solution combining Near Field Communication (NFC) and Quick Response Code (QR code) payments for Singapore Huawei users. Until 28 February 2021, Singapore Huawei Pay users are entitled up to 18% discount at HEYTEA with UnionPay QR Code payment.
Earlier in May, Huawei Mobile Services launched the Huawei Pay in Singapore for users to enjoy secure and convenient mobile transactions with their smart devices. Users can enable Huawei Pay by adding their bank cards to HUAWEI Wallet app and transact conveniently in-store and in-app.
Huawei Pay now said it provides further improved in-store payment experience by offering both NFC and QRC payment methods for greater flexibility. Huawei Pay users can choose to pay with either way in the retail stores.
In Asia Pacific, the Singapore-based Aleta Planet is the first fintech partner that supports both the NFC and QR code payments via Huawei Pay. Aleta Planet is a virtual card service provider which allows users to pay, remit, and collect payments through the UnionPay network.
“We are pleased to announce this collaboration with Singapore’s homegrown fintech company, Aleta Planet, in providing the convenience of our Singapore users to make payment anywhere, anytime. By using Huawei Pay, the AP-1 users can handily make NFC and QR code payment, as well as enjoying a slew of exclusive privileges available. This partnership is part of Huawei’s continuous efforts on optimising the mobile experience for our users,” said Shane Shan, Director of Huawei Mobile Services, Asia Pacific.
