With a smartphone, people can pay almost everything such as shopping, repairing car, paying a taxi and registering a hospital. In many other countries, payment with Alipay and Wechat is becoming a new trend. Alipay's parent company, Ant Financial Services Group or "Ant Financial," has more than 200 million users in 25 countries and regions. Wechat, China's largest social media company, has also grabbed dozens of markets around the world. (Xinhua/Ma Ping)
