With just one single integration through NTT DATA’s Global Payment Hub, global merchants can accept a wid range of local payment methods that are most popular with China’s eCommerce retail consumers.

Apart from its unmatched payment method coverage in China, NTT DATA’s Global Payment Hub also offers an offshore settlement service for UnionPay card online transactions, helping global merchants to better manage foreign exchange exposure. The service allows merchants outside of China to receive transaction settlement funds at competitive rates outside of the country without having to set up a domestic business entity in China. Merchants with the need to pay suppliers in China will benefit from receiving settlement funds in the same currency as the Renminbi-denominated transactions to reduce multiple foreign exchange conversions. NTT DATA’s Global Payment Hub can facilitate these paymentsdirectly to suppliers for the merchants. “Our new China payment offerings put NTT DATA’s Global Payment Hub in a leading position as an international payment service provider with strong local payment capabilities. With our one-stop solution and one point of transaction management, global merchants can access a comprehensive range of China’s local payment methods while enjoying multiple benefits of our superior China payment solution,” said Tyrone Lynch, CEO, NTT DATA’s Global Payment Hub.

China is a high-potential market for global eCommerce and a growing number of Chinese online shoppers are buying globally. The strong demand for foreign goods is driven by higher trust and perceived better quality associated with foreign brands. According to industry sources1, it was projected that 291 million online shoppers in China will spend US$160 billion on cross-border eCommerce by 2020 – almost doubling the figures estimated for 2016. By 2020, a quarter of the Chinese population or about more than half of all digital buyers will be making online purchases from abroad.
