China UnionPay Direct
What is UnionPay?
They’re the main card carried by visitors from China, our second largest tourist market. UnionPay cardholders also come from 24 other countries, including Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan and South Korea. There are more than 6.5 billion UnionPay cards out there. If your customers come from any of these countries you should give us a call today.
Make it easy for Asian tourists and visitors to shop with you.
- Give UnionPay cardholders direct access to their accounts so you can make more sales
- You only pay a fee when you make a sale, so there’s nothing to lose
- If you are with Smartpay and PAX already there’s no change to your terminal and we can simply turn the service on once you have signed the UnionPay paperwork
Give UnionPay cardholders direct access to their accounts
You could make more sales, if UnionPay cardholders can access their accounts through your EFTPOS terminal. Their shopping won’t be limited by the cash they’re carrying and they could buy a whole lot more from your business.
Make the change with no interruption to your business
Setting you up for UnionPay is very simple. There are two options available – either processing through the Paymark network or through our UnionPay Direct add on. If your merchant bank can act as your acquirer, you’ll just need the latest software on compatible terminals and you can accept UnionPay through the Paymark network in the same way you do a Visa or Mastercard payment.
If your bank doesn’t support UnionPay, we can offer you UnionPay Direct on your existing terminal. Sign the merchant agreement with UnionPay, download the software to the Smartpay terminal and you are up and running.
