UnionPay International to Launch Tajikistan’s First Contactless E-Wallet

UnionPay International to Launch Tajikistan’s First Contactless E-Wallet

UnionPay International (UPI) has announced that it is partnering with International Bank of Tajikistan to launch the country’s maiden contactless e-wallet. This will make UnionPay the very first payment brand to offer mobile contactless payment services in the country.

This expansion into Tajikistan will mean that UnionPay mobile payments will now reach to 10 million. UnionPay’s standard e-wallets are present in over 20 countries and regions, including Macao, South Pacific, Hong Kong, and Southeast Asia. The company has rolled out an astounding ten e-wallets in the second quarter of this year.

UPI is continuously applying its technology, specifications and market experience of the Chinese mainland mobile payments to the international market successfully. It offers a variety of wallet products such as the UnionPay App, mobile QuickPass and QR code e-wallets outside the Chinese mainland. Users can enjoy diverse payment experiences with a scan, tap or click.

“The e-wallet launched in Tajikistan reflects these features. Local POS terminals supporting UnionPay QuickPass account for over 80% of the total, and the International Bank of Tajikistan has also issued a large number of UnionPay cards within the country over the past three years,” said UPI’s press release.
