With the market diversifying every day, a business is required to keep its practices up-to-standards to fit the current market environment. If you operate your business in a highly culturally diverse city or country, you might want to check out a new form of payment that has risen from China and has been implemented in many businesses in the Western world. 

This new payment method is WeChat Pay, Alipay, and UnionPay.

This form of payment is extremely common in the Chinese market for its convenience. Currently, OTT Pay is Canada’s authorized partner of WeChat Pay, Alipay, and UnionPay. The company provides payment machines and unique QR codes for businesses to accept such in-person mobile payments. On top of that, they also offer solutions to online shops and e-commerce. Here at Swype POS, we have a partnership with OTT Pay which means we can answer your questions and help you set it up! Let us take you through each of their services:

1. OTT Pay's Smart Payment Device

The company provides a dedicated payment machine that allows merchants to scan QR codes on a customer’s smart device to process a transaction. It works in reverse as well. A customer can scan the QR code on the merchant’s OTT Pay device to proceed with payment. It is a fast, convenient, and secure way of payment that takes only a few seconds.

2. QR Code

This one is very simple. Merchants can also provide a printed QR code that customers can scan and pay with.

3. System Integration

OTT provides the opportunity to integrate your current POS system with its services. If your business uses a bar code scanner, OTT Pay can make it so that the scanner scans QR codes as well. An OTT smart scanner, that is dedicated to scan QR codes and is integrated with your POS, is also an option for merchants to purchase.

4. Online Payment

Own an e-commerce? Offer online ordering at your restaurant? OTT Pay can either provide you with a QR for accepting payments or a secured checkout page that is hosted by them.

Overall, do we think it is worth it to give OTT Pay a shot? If you operate in a multicultural geographic location and your clientele is diverse, then it is definitely worth it!

You might think: “Okay, sounds great! How much does it cost?”

At Swype POS, when you sign up for our POS system, we can take care of the application of OTT Pay for you. We give you a reasonable transaction fee. If you do require a machine for those in-person transactions, a damage deposit is required. Talk to us to see how you can get started!
