China Mobile Ltd. (HKG:0941) Launches Mobile-Payment App, Signs MoU With AppAsia

  • A pair of widely used Chinese mobile-payment systems have launched in Vancouver and Toronto, allowing users to pay for purchases using their home currency while potentially avoiding foreign-exchange limits imposed by the Chinese government.
  • Toronto-based OTT Financial Inc. is working with Chinese Internet giants Tencent and Alibaba to introduce their mobile-payment infrastructure in Canada. The two apps, WeChat Pay and Alipay, are linked with users’ credit cards and allows them to make payments in renminbi, which is then converted to Canadian dollars before it’s transferred to merchants.
  • China is the most important market in the world for mobile games. In April, multiple trends were in play driving the rankings. Tencent continues its market dominance with several titles in the top 10 rankings for iOS downloads and revenue.
  • Casual and social casino games remain popular. With PC online games at the heart of Chinese gaming, mobile games that are adapted from popular PC games are seeing major success. Korean and Japanese IP / graphics styles continue to be popular among Chinese mobile gamers.

Commodity Channel Index (CCI)
