This feature is available for users who have yet linked Alipay as the Apple ID payment method and only takes 3 steps for users to get ready to pay for apps, games or in-app purchases, or subscribe to iCloud+ and Apple Music.
Users can manage their accounts from the “Apple Zone”, including setting monthly payment limits and checking up details of each purchase etc. In fact, the “Apple Zone” has become a go-to place for Apple customers to check out discounts every Friday, including red packets for shopping in the App Store and privileges offered by developers. This fast-binding process has further improved the shopping experience for Apple fans.
This new feature will also soon be available in the AlipayHK app for Hong Kong customers to enjoy the upgraded experience.
