SGQR expands its reach in SG

In collaboration with NETS, Alipay+ has now been incorporated into SGQR. Now, users of Alipay+ partner e-wallets can pay via SGQR at over 11,000 stalls at HDB coffee shops, wet markets, NEA hawker centers, and JTC industrial canteens. This can be done simply by opening their e-wallet apps and scanning the SGQR code at the stalls.

“With Alipay+’s integration into SGQR, it makes it more convenient for foreigners traveling to Singapore, by enabling them to pay with their home e-wallets which they are familiar with. Tourists no longer have to worry about trying to find the right amount of cash to pay in a bustling environment like hawker centres,” stated Cherry Huang, General Manager of Alipay+ Offline Merchant Services, Ant Group.
