Dubai: Network International, the leading payment solutions provider in the Middle East and Africa region, has announced that Alipay, one of the world’s largest online and mobile payment platforms, will be integrated as standard across all its N-Genius payment terminals starting October.

Network International’s seamless support of Alipay will strengthen UAE merchants’ offering to the growing number of Chinese shoppers in the UAE.

Network International will act as both settlement partner (merchant acquirer) and solution provider for mobile-based transactions via Alipay at points of sale and for online purchases.

The payment company’s new N-Genius™platform can facilitate multiple payment methods on just one device, so there is no need for merchants to invest in a separate machine to accept Alipay.
