Linghao Bao, an examiner at consultancy firm Trivium China, told CNBC, “Chinese customers are so secured WeChat Pay and Alipay, it’s not practical to persuade them to change to another portable installment application. So it’s a good idea for the national bank to collaborate with WeChat Pay and Alipay instead of doing it all alone.”
