Useless at this time

Fe Ri Ke

Finally! An English version of this App! Except it’s useless without a Chinese credit card. It won’t accept a U.S. credit card, even for identification purposes. By contrast, WeChat will. I recognize that merchants won’t accept payment from US cards, but with WeChat, I can at least complete the identification process and then use cash balances for payment.

Plus, once you move past the home page, you quickly run into pages that are in Chinese, so incomprehensible to us illiterate foreigners.

Alibaba is a great company, but this app has a long way to go before it is useful to foreign visitors.

No support for iPhone 10


It has been a week since the release of iPhone 10 and Alipay still does not support face scanning. I have to put in my password every time I want to pay for something. I have started to use Wechat pay, which supported iPhone 10 since the beginning. I never notice how convenient it was to use Wechat pay. I think I will start using Wechat pay from now on. I recommend all iPhone 10 users to use Wechat pay and not wait for Alipay to update. I mean come on! it has been a week almost all other apps have updated to support iPhone 10.

No iPhone X support


I used to love how versatile Alipay was. I used it for everything. I loved that it accepted my fingerprint on my iPhone 7. It made everything so convenient. But now I have an iPhone X and Alipay doesn’t use face recognition for payment the way it did with fingerprint. This is frustrating and inconvenient. WeChat used it and makes everything more convenient because of it. I often have to choose whether to use Alipay or WeChat to pay for things. Before it was no contest and I would choose Alipay. But recently I have been using WeChat more because of convenience.
