Nestia, Singapore’s most comprehensive one-stop lifestyle platform, is partnering UnionPay and Aleta Planet to offer users QR Code payment that is quick, convenient and secure.
This will make payment simple for over 600,000 Nestia users by introducing a co-branded virtual card with Aleta Planet that is powered by the UnionPay network. Users of the Nestia app will simply need to activate their Aleta Planet Nestia Virtual Card, which will enable them to make cashless payments at various merchant locations via QR Code.
By leveraging on UnionPay’s global network, users will be able to make payments using their virtual card on the Nestia app at over 30 million merchants across 41 countries and regions accepting UnionPay QR Code payment. All users have to do is scan the QR Code to make payment, simplifying the payment process by removing the need to dig for cash and wait for change.
“UnionPay is proud to be partnering Nestia and Aleta Planet to launch the Aleta Planet Nestia Virtual Card, as part of our effort to expand digital payment options for consumers to transact locally and abroad,” said Mr. Huiming Cai, General Manager, UnionPay International Southeast Asia. “This partnership not only enables us to bring the convenience of mobile payments to more consumers, it also creates new platforms for them to enjoy greater ease of digital payments in key destinations around the world when travel restrictions are lifted.”
Aleta Planet’s Chairman and Group CEO Ryan Gwee said: “We are delighted to announce this collaboration with Nestia, onboarding the app’s over 600,000 users onto the Aleta Planet Nestia Virtual Card. Cardholders can conveniently make QR payments and also enjoy a host of exclusive privileges available only to UnionPay cardholders. UnionPay is the world’s largest issuer of bank cards and we are excited for Nestia’s subscribers to discover a world of benefits and convenience at their fingertips.”
The convenience of the Aleta Planet Nestia Virtual Card extends to making payment online. From paying bills to online shopping, payment can be made via the virtual card as well, giving our users the freedom to make payment from the comfort of their home or even on the go.
Users will also enjoy a slew of exciting benefits and rewards when using the Aleta Planet Nestia Virtual Card. As the card is powered by the UnionPay network, users will also be able to enjoy exciting UnionPay Rewards, such as $5 off a minimum $10 spend at HeyTea (now until 31 October
2020) and $15 off a minimum $150 spend at Haidilao (now until 17 November 2020). On top of already existing UnionPay Rewards, the Aleta Planet Nestia Virtual Card will also offer exclusive discounts, promotions and rewards to users.
