Alipay has reached deals with 11 Chinese vending machine distributors on Alipay On-site, the company announced today. Alipay On-site is a solution that enables users to make payments with the Alipay Wallet app at vending machines.

Currently over a hundred vending machines support the on-site payment solution. Alipay’s goal for this year is to have half of the vending machines in subways across China support the solution.

It is estimated that the 11 distributors cover over 90% of China’s vending machine market. Alipay also plans to work with vending machine manufacturers to pre-install the solution.
