As of 7 November, Touch 'n Go has announced that their cross-border payment capabilities will be available for use in Mainland China.

They reported that this capability was only made possible due to the digital payment company's collaboration with Alipay+, a suite of global cross-border digital payments and marketing solutions operated by Ant Group.

This partnership makes Touch 'n Go the first-ever Malaysian eWallet service that can be used for payments in Mainland China

According to Alan Ni, chief executive officer (CEO) of Touch 'n Go Digital, Malaysians travelling to Mainland China can rest easy knowing that there's a payment solution that they can utilise for cashless payments, even in Malaysian Ringgit.

"We expect our users to experience the same seamless convenience of using Touch 'n Go eWallet in Mainland China as how they would in Malaysia, and with the assurance that their transactions are safe and secure. We will continue to grow our acceptance to more markets in time to come," stated Alan.

Aside from Mainland China, Touch 'n Go eWallet users will be able to conduct cross-border payments wherever an Alipay+'s QR code is present

The Edge Markets reported that the service is available in Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Britain, Italy, France, and Germany.

Finally, Alan said that he expects that users using the service in Mainland China to experience the same seamless convenience of using a Touch 'n Go eWallet here in Malaysia without a dip in quality.
