Alipay forms partnership with Splitit to offer ‘pay after delivery’ on AliExpress
US-based Splitit Payments has formed a partnership with Alipay to power the ‘Pay after delivery’ option for shoppers on AliExpress, the ecommerce marketplace owned by China’s Alibaba Group.
Initially, the new service will be available in Germany, France and Spain, before being rolled out to other international markets.
‘Pay on delivery’ is a new payments instalment service being offered by Splitit, which allows consumers to pay for their purchases after they have been delivered, with the existing credit on their payment card.
It is powered by Splitit’s flexible technology platform, coupled with Checkout.com’s payment-acquiring capabilities.
Alipay is AliExpress’ global payment solution partner.
Nandan Sheth, CEO of Splitit, said: “Our work with Alipay is a testament to the flexibility of Splitit’s platform and the strength of our new partnership with Checkout.com. Together we are providing a valuable resource for sellers and shoppers by powering payment after delivery.”
Global marketplace AliExpress launched in 2010 to give consumers the opportunity to buy directly from manufacturers and distributors in China and globally.
“Splitit’s white-label approach allows us to easily customise and integrate the service into our platform while delivering a positive experience for sellers and shoppers,” added AliExpress European commercial director Topp Gary Paul.
Splitit, which is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia in the US, has an R&D centre in Israel, and offices in London and Australia.
