Alipay, the Internet payment subsidiary of the Chinese B2B e-commerce group Alibaba, has confirmed that after a one-year distribution timeline, its mobile phone payment service will enter an official promotion stage this year.
At present, Alipay has published recruitment information to hire wireless development engineers, including mobile phone product developers, wireless product managers, and wireless system engineers for the mobile phone payment service. The company is expected to set up a large wireless team before the end of 2009.
Song Manyuan, manager for Alipay's wireless business department, told local media that Alipay started tapping the mobile phone payment business at the beginning of 2008. After a one-year beta test and development period, this service will be officially launched later in 2009.
