Apple adds UnionPay support to Chinese App Store

Apple announced today that UnionPay has now been added as a payment option for customers in China. As the most popular payment card in China, this will make it easier for Chinese App Store customers to purchase content on the App Store, and customers can now link their Apple ID with a UnionPay debit or credit card for one-tap purchases. UnionPay is responsible for China’s national inter-bank clearing and settlement system, and has issued more than 4.5 billion of its own debit and credit cards worldwide. It’s previously been reported that Apple is looking to bring Apple Pay to China, in conjunction with UnionPay.
