As part of the agreement, both the companies launched a mini ordering programme in Vancouver, enabling Alipay users to place orders and make payment on the platform.

The partnership makes ClickDishes the first North American food ordering platform on Alipay.

Alipay North America general manager Yulei Wang said: “Vancouver is a key destination for Chinese consumers who seek out authentic and local experiences, especially in and around the Chinese New Year.

“We are thrilled to offer consumers simple, in-app ordering with the same security and convenience they have come to expect back home.”

“Alipay gives Chinese consumers peace of mind while they are abroad with a secure and convenient payment option they are already accustomed to at home.

“We partnered with ClickDishes, a dynamic local Canadian start-up, for the greatest reach to restaurants in the Vancouver area, and we are pleased to continue to offer Chinese consumers a seamless shopping and payment experience.”

As part of the programme, Alipay customers can access hundreds of participating restaurants across Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton to place orders, while restaurants partnering with ClickDishes will be able to offer their services to millions of Chinese consumers using Alipay.

ClickDishes CEO Alec Wang said: “We are excited to partner with Alibaba’s Alipay to provide convenience for Chinese tourists to explore local restaurants.

“We are thrilled to offer consumers simple, in-app ordering with the same security and convenience they have come to expect back home.”

ClickDishes partners with local restaurants to offer food ordering and delivery services to employees and students across Canada.
