Alipay to impose fees on credit card payments

Thursday 21 February 2019 | 02:36 PM CET

Alibaba`s payment arm Alipay has announced it will start charging a fee on credit card repayments starting from March 2019.

The government’s tightening regulatory control over the payment industry, which is aimed at reducing financial risks, has had a significant impact on platforms’ revenue streams.

From 26 March 2019, Alipay will start charging 0.1% on monthly repayments in excess of RMB 2,000 (around USD 300). This move comes amid rising operational costs and tightening regulation.

The fee will not be applied to credit card bills below the monthly threshold, while users that exceed it will be able to use their membership points to increase the quota without incurring fees.
