Alipay and WeChat Pay: Implementation of mobile payment methods in Switzerland

    - Fare-Collection-Systems

    Delivering outstanding complete experiences and well-connected mobility throughout the Alps: BVZ Holding AG (Switzerland) also wants to fulfil this promise for the growing number of Asian tourists and now offers their customers the option to pay with Alipay and WeChat Pay. This makes the company one of the first operators in Europe offering the popular Chinese mobile payment methods, which are already used by more than 1.5 billion people worldwide.

    We are proud to be part of this important project. In collaboration with Alturos Destinations GmbH we have implemented Alipay and WeChat Pay in the online shops of the railway companies of BVZ Holding AG. The young, online affine and financially strong customers from the Asian region can now buy tickets for the Matterhorn Gotthard Railway, the Gornergrat Railway or the Glacier Express online and pay with Alipay and WeChat Pay.
