Today we're adding support for China UnionPay in the UK and the European Union, making it even easier for global businesses to sell to Chinese buyers. With this launch, Framer users in North America, Europe, and most of Asia can now support the top three ways Chinese buyers want to pay: UnionPay, Alipay, and WeChat Pay, which collectively account for 85% of online purchases by Chinese consumers.

The cross-border ecommerce opportunity in China is large and growing rapidly. In 2020 alone, Chinese consumers spent nearly $100 billion on ecommerce products and services from outside China, up 31 percent year-on-year.

The Chinese buyer market also extends to the global Chinese diaspora living, working, and studying outside China—representing more than 60 million people. EASI, an Asian food delivery platform from Australia, was able to quickly expand its reach to more Chinese customers in Japan, Canada, the UK, and the US by adding Alipay and WeChat Pay to its Framer integration.

UnionPay—and its global network, UnionPay International—is the world's largest card network, with nearly 9 billion cards in circulation. When added to the more than 2 billion wallet users combined across Alipay and WeChat Pay, businesses now have a fast, easy way to engage the majority of the Chinese ecommerce market with the payment methods these consumers find most familiar.
