Beaverbrooks simplifies shopping experience for Chinese visitors

Beaverbrooks in Westfield Stratford in East London.

Beaverbrooks’s Westfield Stratford has become one of the first jewellers in the UK to accept payments using Alipay.

Alipay is a real time in-store payment solution used by 450 million people in China.


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.
