Aleta Planet partners AXS to enable digital payments with UnionPay

•    AXS users can now pay their bills online and via mobile app using UnionPay Cards
•    Aleta Planet is first fintech and certified principal member of UnionPay to partner AXS
•    UnionPay Mobile Payments gaining popularity among Singaporeans

Aleta Planet, a fast-growing Singapore-based fintech, has partnered payment service provider AXS, to enable UnionPay customers to make a wide range of payments via AXS’ m-Station mobile app or online with AXS e-station.

Aleta Planet is providing the application programming interface (API) technology to power the use of all UnionPay Cards to make e-payments through AXS mobile app or AXS website.

AXS users can use their UnionPay Prepaid, Debit and Credit Cards to pay their bills or fines, top-up pre-paid cards, and use government e-services wherever they are. Aleta Planet is the first fintech and certified principal member of UnionPay to partner AXS.

Aleta Planet said that its AP-1 Virtual UnionPay Card can also be used to pay bills on AXS. Launched last December, AP-1 enables Singaporeans and foreigners to make cashless payments in China for big and small transactions.

China-centric Aleta Planet has been looking to expand its suite of services for UnionPay customers, providing more digital payment options, benefits and rewards. The move comes as demand for UnionPay Mobile Payment products and services continues to grow among Singaporean consumers.

Aleta Planet’s Chairman and Group CEO Ryan Gwee said: “We are thrilled that AXS has chosen our secure, proprietary technology platform to enable online and mobile payments for UnionPay customers.

“This partnership with AXS will make it easier and more convenient for consumers to pay for all kinds of things including their utilities, phone bills, loans, insurance and other services.”

Mr Huiming Cai, General Manager, UnionPay International Southeast Asia said “As a global payment brand at the forefront of championing innovative payment, UnionPay is always looking for more ways to cater to a wider segment of customers with varying payment needs. The partnership with Aleta Planet and AXS opens up a secure and convenient payment option for UnionPay customers to top up prepaid SIM card, perform various eServices and bill payments on AXS mobile app and website.”
