PayEase Background

PayEase was established by the Chinese government in 1998 as the country’s first independent third-party payment provider and was acquired by its current owners in 2005. It has provided e-commerce services with strict compliance with the standards of the People’s Bank of China since 2000.

PayEase was the first payment service provider in China to acquire PCI Certification, ISO 9001 and ISO 27001. In 2012, it signed an agreement with CyberSource, a Visa company, to provide fraud protection and security management services for Chinese domestic online merchant account holders.

In April 2014, it was one of only five providers in China awarded with a global e-commerce cross-border payments licence. This means that merchants outside of China can now sell their products to customers in the country just by connecting to PayEase.
