The rapid rise of third-party electronic payments is boosting China’s online consumer market growth and it will support its economy’s rebalancing, a Moody’s report said, IANS reported. The value of the third-party e-payments in China has grown at an annual rate of more than 100% since 2015, offering consumers an alternative to banks’ payment channels at lower transaction costs, said the credit rating agency. The growth stimulates online consumption and services, benefiting internet companies and service companies along the supply chain, Xinhua news agency quoted the report as saying. In the long term, the development of e-payments and overall growth of e-commerce would encourage China’s economic rebalancing toward consumption from investment, Moody’s said. Not knowing the market demands, failure to manage costs, policies and wrong entry strategy are the most obvious reasons that retailers fail in China. It would support growth of the service sector, which would boost employment and consumption, and in turn stimulate more e-payments, it added.
