With around 500 million users, Alipay is one of the world’s most widely used online payment systems. The Chinese application is a pioneer in cashless payment transactions and, in addition to mobile payment, you can also use it to manage your finances, take out insurance, call a taxi or even order at your favourite restaurant. A QR code generated by the app lets you make a mobile payment with Alipay at a KaDeWe cash desk. The application is available for Android, iOS and Windows Phone. One condition: at present, you need a Chinese bank account for Alipay.

WeChat is China’s most popular messenger service for smartphones. But that’s not all: almost one billion people also use the WeChat Pay app as a payment service. This makes WeChat Pay the world’s leading mobile payment system right now. WeChat Pay has worked in Europe since 2017 and is especially valued by tourists from Asia. KaDeWe is one of the first department stores in Germany to offer this mobile payment service. WeChat Pay works with a QR code, which is automatically generated every 60 seconds, making mobile payment secure.
