China's Baidu enters strategic partnership with Paypal to tap Chinese tourists

SHARE:

BEIJING  - Baidu Inc said on Friday that it has entered a strategic agreement with PayPal Holdings Inc to tap overseas merchants as Chinese tech companies ramp up the fight for overseas payment partnerships.

Under the agreement, Baidu's payment platform, Baidu Wallet, will be accepted by roughly 17 million PayPal merchants globally, the Chinese firm said in a statement on Thursday.

"Partnering with PayPal on technology and product innovation will provide Baidu users with the ultimate cross-border consumer experience," said Baidu senior vice president Guang Zhu.

The deal comes as China's top payment firms, Alibaba Group Holding Ltd affiliate Ant Financial and Tencent Holdings Ltd, are making aggressive moves to expand their payment networks overseas.

This year Ant Financial entered a $1.2 billion bid for U.S. remittance firm MoneyGram International Inc, a deal that has attracted scrutiny from U.S. lawmakers who say it could threaten national security.

Ant has also purchased stakes in half a dozen payment firms across Asia as part of a plan to expand its finance business outside of China.

Tencent's WeChat Pay has also inked a series of partnerships with global payment firms and earlier this month said it has applied directly for a Malaysian payments license.

PayPal, which reported better-than-expected results on Thursday, entered into new partnerships with Apple Inc and Bank of America this month.

It has also targeted Southeast Asian markets recently through local partnerships, but earlier attempts to enter the Chinese market directly have been unsuccessful due to tight regulation and strong local players.


PayPal will work with Baidu's financial services group under the new agreement to target cross-border payments between Chinese consumers and online businesses based outside of China.

Baidu Wallet has roughly 100 million users, and still trails behind Tencent's WeChat and Ant Financial's Alipay in terms of users and global reach.
