PPRO announces partnership with UnionPay, gives EU merchants access to millions of Chinese shoppers

PPRO’s partnership with UnionPay International accelerates the company’s expansion into China’s e-commerce market.

Rilispedia.com – Leading local payments platform PPRO is pleased to announce it has become a direct acquirer for UnionPay International, the world’s largest card scheme in terms of card issuance.

The relationship will provide PPRO’s payment service providers and their merchants in Europe the ability to accept e-commerce payment from the hundreds of millions of shoppers who use UnionPay as their preferred payment method. Opening up access to cross-border trade with the Chinese B2C e-commerce market, valued at $1,030 billion, is a move that again signals the strategic importance of the APAC region to PPRO.

With the addition of UnionPay, PPRO’s offering is now one of the most comprehensive offerings for PSPs and other merchant acquirers in the market; it covers acquiring, processing and funds collection all under one contract, one integration and one settlement. PPRO supports processing and settlement for UnionPay in 11 currencies. Customers benefit from faster on-boarding, transaction settlements and funds collection, refunds and improved conversion rates. PPRO will now be able to take full end-to-end management of UnionPay to market, offering better support and higher security.

Jack Ehlers, Director of Product, Payment Networks, and Business Development at PPRO, commented: “The Chinese e-commerce market is growing at a rate of 9% a year on average, representing a huge opportunity for international merchants. With an average spend of $1,934.72 a year per consumer, merchants can’t afford to ignore the Chinese e-commerce market any longer. Through PPRO’s new partnership with UnionPay International, it is now easier than ever for EU merchants who sell internationally to take their first step selling to Chinese consumers.”

Wei Zhihong, Market Director from UnionPay International and Head of UnionPay International Europe, added: “We’re excited to open up a world of opportunity and choice of products to Chinese consumers as well as many consumers from other parts of the world. Through the partnership with PPRO, our customers can now shop securely and confidently with international merchants, and with a payment method they are accustomed to. We believe this will also bring more opportunities to merchants.”
