Is your business prepared for Chinese payment systems to capitalise on the expenditure of this growing tourism market? Tourism Events Queensland (TEQ) is hosting a Chinese Payment Masterclass on the Gold Coast on November 21, aimed at helping small businesses to understand the importance of payment apps like Alipay and UnionPay to the Chinese market - and how to unlock the spend potential of Chinese travellers for your business..
Recent consumer research by Nielson found that 91% of Chinese travellers indicated they would be likely to spend more on their holiday if operators accepted Chinese mobile payments.
However, few businesses across the city have implemented the necessary platforms. If you run a coffee shop or restaurant, doctor surgery, chemist, dentist, transport company, oceanfront business or nature-based attraction and want to ensure your business can welcome Chinese customers, this masterclass is for you. It's not only for typical tourism business - in fact, more young Chinese travellers are searching for everyday experiences here in our region and are more willing to travel beyond the typical tourism attractions in search of authentic experiences.
These free workshops run by TEQ will help you to better understand the Chinese payment landscape, and teach you how your business can take the next steps to become ‘payment ready’.
