When shopping abroad using Alipay, the system deducts the amount of a payment from the buyer’s Alipay account in real-time in Chinese yuan, and then settles the payment to the merchant in their own currency.

The Alipay system is in use at Beaverbrooks in Westfield Stratford as part of a Verifone e355 mPOS solution.
