99 Ranch Market and CITCON Partner to Deliver Customer-centric Shopping Experience


Santa Clara, July, 2018 – CITCON, the leading cross-border mobile payment company, announced that 99 Ranch Market, the largest Asian supermarket chain in the United States has successfully deployed the CITCON mobile payment and marketing solution, which allows it to accept China’s most preferred payment options Alipay and WeChat Pay, and leverage their marketing channels to better service Chinese customers.


“We have been searching for solutions to provide our customers with a more secure and convenient shopping experience. With the addition of Alipay and WeChat Pay, we look forward to enhancing the overall shopping experience for our shoppers,” said Juliet C., Marketing Manager of 99 Ranch Market. “Our partnership with CITCON is extremely pleasant. Their experienced product and tech team ensured the seamless launch at all our stores.”


Chuck Huang, Founder and CEO of CITCON commented, “Mobile Payment has dramatically reshaped the consumer behavior in China. The habit of using mobile payment, the speed and convenience of use, and the additional benefits and rewards, are all key factors that have driven the mobile payment adoption explosion. A fundamental change in how we shop could be on the horizon.”


The advantages are apparent: mobile payment is quick and easy; there is no need to calculate change, no need to process credit card transactions. Chinese consumers consider convenience, speed, and familiarity as the primary reasons for choosing mobile payment. Whether dining out, shopping, or using any kind of transportation, people actively choose mobile payment as the preferred method of payment.

“Traditional grocery retailers are being challenged from various fronts. We are proud to partner with 99 Ranch Market to implement Alipay and WeChat Pay payment and marketing solutions that bring a unified shopping experience to their customers,” said Wei Jiang, COO and President of CITCON. “The adoption of mobile payment and marketing solutions helps grocers blend the online and offline experiences. We look forward to exploring the potential to help more grocers and retailers forge personalized connection with shoppers and drive smart retail strategy.”
