Payments  and transactional services giant, Worldline has announced the expansion of in-store and e-commerce payments for global merchants through the integration of Alipay+.

The rollout, which is expected to start in 2022, will facilitate merchants in mobile and other digital payment methods. With the latest integration, Worldline has become the first acquirer to establish a full-scale multi-country integration with Alipay+.

Operated by Ant Group, Alipay+ was introduced in 2020. The product supports a broad range of digital payment methods, including e-wallets and bank apps. According to Worldline, the expanded payment solution will work with the company’s terminal and applications.

“We are very happy to extend our partnership with Ant Group which has been a trusted partner for several years. We are particularly proud to be the first acquirer to form this partnership in Europe with such a globally recognized and respected brand. At Worldline, our key ambition is to create maximum simplicity for both merchants and their customers in order to provide a smooth payment journey. By supporting the acceptance of Alipay+, we will help our customers in Europe to offer Asian shoppers and tourists a secure, trusted and easy payment experience,” Vincent Roland, the Managing Director of Merchant Services at Worldline, commented.

Last month, Worldline announced a new strategic plan to accelerate its expansion. The  fintech  firm outlined that it is planning to recruit around 5,000 people globally in the next few months.
