New Alipay Charges Prompt User Anger

Alipay will charge 0.1% for transfers

The payment service Alipay is going to start charging users. The services producer, Alibaba, will charge 0.1% every time transfers are made from Alipay to personal bank accounts. However, the planned introduction of the charges on the 12th October 2016 have not gone down well with users. Commenters on the Sina Tech article announcing the changes were mostly negative, with the most liked comment saying “I don't understand”, adding that it was disappointing that Alipay suddenly “wants to charge fees”.
