Two of Toronto's biggest attractions are now accepting two of China's biggest mobile payment options. WeChat Pay and Alipay are now being accepted at the CN Tower and Ripley's Aquarium of Canada. Both attractions can now accept payment in Chinese RMB converted to Canadian dollars via their respective apps. Together, WeChat Pay and Alipay have more than 1.3 billion active users. The apps launched in Canada last spring. The payment solution supports the 2018 Canada-China Year of Tourism, a joint initiative of both countries. China has been Toronto's largest overseas market since 2014 with 319,000 visitors coming to the region last year. Visitors from China spent C$304 million in 2017 – an increase of 147 per cent over five years.
