TORONTO, April 17, 2019 /CNW/ - OTT Pay is announcing a partnership with Canada's Wonderland to seamlessly connect the amusement park to Chinese consumers. As of the park's opening on May 3, those guests will be able to use WeChat Pay or Alipay when buying tickets and season passes at front gate.
"This partnership helps us accommodate the diversity of our guests and their preferred payment methods," said Norm Pirtovshek, Canada's Wonderland General Manager. "As guest demographics and preferences change, we're adapting so we can make it easier for our guests to purchase tickets and enjoy a day at the park."
In addition, Canada's Wonderland will also be among the first North American amusement and entertainment organizations to launch an official WeChat account and Alipay Discovery account. This enables the park to deliver relevant and timely news and event information directly to users.
"We are so excited to help Canada's Wonderland welcome Chinese consumers by offering their preferred method of payment," said Alex Liu, Vice President of the OTT Financial Group and Chief Executive Officer of OTT Pay Inc. "We expect that our technology will open the doors for the growing number of Chinese tourists, international students and new immigrants to visit Canada's premiere theme park."
By making China's most popular payment methods available to guests, Canada's Wonderland is among thousands of other Canadian businesses using OTT Pay to strengthen connections to a growing Chinese consumer market.
