Mobile app payment is becoming popular among the Chinese launderettes

The new payment methods, using the mobile apps, such as WeChat and Alipay, are becoming increasingly popular in Asian laundry and dry cleaning sector.

Two new vended laundries, in which the payment can be done using the WeChat mobile app, were launched in the capital Beijing only, on August, the 27th . They are equipped by Girbau, in the context of o broader partnership signed earlier this year (in May) with the Chinese laundry machinery manufacturing company Shenguang, with the purpose of increasing the market-share in the Chinese market.

The main question is how long it will take until mobile app payment methods will become a consumer habit it Europe, as well.
