MOL AccessPortal Sdn. Bhd. (MOL), a subsidiary of MOL Global, Inc., a leading e-payment enabler has partnered with AliPay to offer Alipay Mobile Wallet Payment Acceptance at all 7- Eleven Malaysia nationwide. With the partnership, MOL acts as a third party merchant acquirer (TPA) to facilitate Alipay payments in Malaysia, by signing up merchants such as 7-Eleven. At the launching ceremony, Preecha Praipattarakul, Global CEO of MOL Global, Inc., said MOL is excited to work with Alipay to provide Chinese tourists with a convenient and secure payment experience while they are in Malaysia. We look forward to developing our relationship with Alipay by acquiring more merchants and enabling them to accept Alipay. Mainland Chinese tourists can now use their Alipay app to make their payments in Renminbi while touring Malaysia. Alipay payments are easy and simple to use – merchants only need to scan a barcode generated by the Alipay app in their mobile phones using the MOLReload’s electronic distribution application at the merchants’ store.Held in Kuala Lumpur yesterday, the launching ceremony was officiated by Tan Sri Vincent Tan, majority shareholder of MOL Global, Inc., and 7-Eleven Malaysia and Founder of the Berjaya Corporation; and witnessed by Gary Brown, CEO of 7-Eleven Malaysia; Preecha Praipatarrakul, Global CEO of MOL Global; Greta Gunawan, Country Head of Alipay Malaysia; Dayong Zhang, General Manager of Alipay Southeast Asia and Douglas Feagin, SVP of Ant Financial, parent company of Alipay.
