On November 28th, recently, a foreign market research company said that the statistics of global mobile payment users in 2017 showed that WeChat ranked first with 600 million users and Alipay ranked second with 400 million users.

This data caused some netizens to be puzzled. After all, Alipay was earlier than WeChat.

This afternoon, Alipay officially responded humorously to the "big brother deì, wake up, Alipay was 450 million in 2016, and now the number of users worldwide has exceeded 900 million."

It is reported that Ant Financial has subsequently confirmed that Alipay has more than 900 million users worldwide, including those who use Alipay services among overseas local wallet partners. Among them, 70% of domestic active users use 3 or more Alipay services.

From 450 million in 2016 to 900 million in 2018, it means more than 100% growth in two years.

The ant Jinfu said that the reason for the growth comes from the synergy of the Alibaba economy. Since Alibaba has gained more consumers in some less developed regions, Alibaba's financial report shows that the annual active consumers have maintained an increase of more than 20 million for five consecutive quarters. On the other hand, Alipay relies on Ant Financial, and its layout in technology, scenarios and services has also brought about rapid growth of users.

The question is coming. Are you using Alipay or WeChat?
