If you are using a Hosted Payment Page, this payment method is available to you out‑of‑the‑box; however, it is disabled by default. To enable Alipay, you must select it. For more information, refer to Enabling Payment Methods.
The lightbox opens on top of existing checkout page, and the shopper logs in to Alipay. The shopper can also create a new Alipay account.
The shopper is redirected back to the checkout page. The shopper completes the purchase and initiates the payment.
