Welcome I

t’s a great pleasure to bring you our first issue for the year and to wish everyone a very happy start to 2018. I trust you all managed to get some time off over Summer and celebrated what I hope was a period of excellent retail success. In the Autumn 2018 edition of epayWorld magazine we focus on the benefits of alternative payments and how accepting them in your store can lead to increased sales. We speak with several leading retailers – including WHSmith and Priceline Pharmacy – about how they capitalised on the Chinese New Year sales period by accepting Alipay payments in their stores. By specifically targeting Chinese buyers with discounts and offers on the Alipay mobile app they attracted all-new customers and are now one step ahead of their competitors with many more key Chinese shopping dates on the horizon. Our retailer profile this issue – Raju Panthi from Priceline Pharmacy Town Hall – told us this about the benefits of partnering with epay for Alipay and WeChat Pay: “These new forms of payment are what some of our customers are increasingly using and we can see growth in this area in years to come. In order to capitalise on this we engaged epay for a solution and working with them is a delight. They made the whole process easy to understand, gave us some ideas and marketing support and implemented it all in quick time.”

“These new forms of payment are what some of our customers are increasingly using and we can see growth in this area in years to come.” To find out more about epay’s alternative payment options, or to start accepting Alipay and WeChat Pay payments in your store, talk to one of our customer service representatives today. Our cover feature on page 8 focuses on the rise and rise of subscription video on demand (SVOD) services in Australia. The statistics show that the likes of Netflix and Stan are now more popular than traditional Pay TV operators like Foxtel with 32 percent of all Australians SVOD customers in 2017. So let your customers know you have our Netflix, Stan and iTunes gift cards available as all age-sectors of the community have caught the binge TV bug and anyone coming into your store could represent a sale. Easter arrives early this year so make sure you read our Easter gift card guide on page 22 and discover which epay products to promote ahead of the long public holiday. Our new TicketMaster and RedBalloon gift cards will be the ideal way to experience a memorable Easter event while our holiday and flight products – from Luxury Escapes, Virgin, and Jetstar – will be just the ticket for a getaway. And to help our retailers boost the awareness of our product range, we have released all-new POS collateral that we highlight on page 28. Take a look at all that we have on offer and fill out the order form on page 29 so you can have our latest POS material on display in your store. Kind regards, Matt Blayney Country Manager

ALIPAY PAYS OFF

The Chinese New Year celebrations may have ended for another year but the benefits continue for Australian retailers. We speak with four businesses who are benefitting from the Chinese tourist spend by accepting Alipay payments in their stores.

WHSmith’s Head of Retail Operations Glen McCormack interviewed by Alipay and introducing WHSmith to a Chinese audience WHSmith has been accepting Alipay payments for over six months WHSmith placed gifts for Chinese customers in red envelopes during the Chinese New Year McCormack lent his hand to making Chinese New Year decorations to place in store

Chinese New Year scrolls – which wish shoppers a happy New Year – are a great idea to place at the front of your store

WHSmith For more than six months WHSmith stores have been accepting Alipay and the benefits have been immediate. Their Head of Retail Operations Glen McCormack said the stationery chain has all of its deals advertised on the Alipay app in the coupon page. “The key benefit we’ve seen is increased foot traffic and in brand exposure,” he said. In the lead up to the Chinese New Year celebrations, WHSmith decorated all of their stores in Chinese New Year decorations, displayed all of their Alipay deals on the app in Chinese New Year style while they offered lots of deals aimed specifically at Chinese visitors.

Pretty Ballerinas advertise on the Alipay app for Pretty Ballerinas discounts off certain shoes Much loved by celebrities throughout the world, Pretty Ballerinas offer a range of beautifully made shoes and now accept Alipay payments in store. During the Chinese New Year celebrations and throughout the year they advertise on the Alipay app discounts on different shoes – specifically targeted at their Chinese customers. “We are very pleased to offer Alipay payments to our customers, especially our Chinese visitors,” Chief Operating Officer Nina-Gai Till said. “With Alipay, our Chinese visitors receive a seamless payment system, allowing them the comfort of familiarity and ease of use.” It’s no surprise that Pretty Ballerinas would recommend Alipay to other retailers: “We would highly recommend the Alipay platform to all retailers who work with Chinese visitors – it is a courtesy to be able to offer ease of payment and to make our guests feel at home. From a retailer point of view, working with Alipay is simple and effective as a tool to connect with an important customer base.”

“With Alipay, our Chinese visitors receive a seamless payment system, allowing them the comfort of familiarity and ease of use,” Pretty Ballerinas Chief Operating Officer Nina-Gai Till. Pretty Ballerinas always try to have Mandarin speaking staff available to help their customers


ALIPAY SPOTLIGHT L'Occitane En Provence The world renowned beauty product retailer says accepting Alipay payments in store enables them to reach out and engage with the Chinese market. “We tailor offers just for the Alipay community,” L’Occitane’s Retail Marketing Manager Julie Chan said. “During the Chinese New Year period we offered a lucky envelope to each Alipay user with gift cards starting from $10 up to $150. This was a nice way to connect with the Alipay community.”

“Most Chinese customers are using mobile apps to pay so not accepting this method of payment would be a missed sales opportunity,” L’Occitane’s Retail Marketing Manager Julie Chan.

Ladurée The French luxury bakery and sweets maker is one of the world's best-known sellers of the doubledecker macaron – 15000 of which are sold worldwide every day. They are now also known for accepting Alipay payments in store. “During the Chinese New Year we hosted a special high tea with a complimentary gift with purchase (Michael Kors perfume and gift boxed gold leaf macaron) valued at $26 for Alipay users. We also did a complimentary tea tasting stand to showcase our tea range to Chinese customers,” Ladurée Sales and Marketing Manager Kylie Ritter said.

RETAILER PROFILE

SPOT LIGHT... Raju Panthi Priceline Pharmacy Town Hall

Tell us about your business We established in 2015 with one goal in mind – to provide the best health and beauty experience for customers in the heart of Sydney. Being a Priceline branded pharmacy, we offer an extensive range of products across health and beauty that includes prescription and over-thecounter medicine, vitamins, skincare, haircare, cosmetics and fragrances. Our mission is to make our customers happy and we strive to deliver great personalised advice, low prices and efficient service. What are the benefits of partnering with epay for Alipay and Wechat Pay? These new forms of payment are what some of our customers are increasingly using and we can see growth in this area in years to come. In order to capitalise on this we engaged epay for a solution and working with them is a delight. They made the whole process easy to understand, gave us some ideas and marketing support and implemented it all in quick time. What are the benefits of accepting Alipay/Wechat payments in your store? We have already seen an increase in sales using AliPay and Wechat Pay and our

customers seem happy that we offer the service. We think it gives us a competitive edge over other stores and it also reduces cash handling and errors. I think it was a good move for us and I’m looking forward to see how it will impact our sales over the next few months. How do you advertise the new payment methods to capture people's attention? We have placed epay point of sale material throughout the store to let customers know we accept these payment types. This is important as it draws customers in and reminds them to utilise the new payment options available. What did you do for Chinese New Year and what will you do this year to capture more Chinese spend? We had a number of sales events during the New Year period and that certainly helped bring customers to the store. Additionally, we utilised the Alipay app to advertise in-store discounts and bonus offers and this translated into increased sales and foot traffic. It is such an important shopping season for Sydney and we were glad to be part of such a great event. ep ay AU T UMN 2018
