Hostwinds now accepts Alipay as a valid payment method for our services. The option to use Alipay will be visible within the cart, as long as the checkout process detects that you are coming from a IP address in China. (Make sure to set your country to be China as well, as this may have an effect)
Where To Select This In The Cart?
Step One: Add the product you are looking to purchase into your Hostwinds cart.
Step Two: From the cart, lower on the page where you enter in your Payment information, as long as the site detects that you are coming from an IP address located in China, the option to use Alipay will be visible
After the order is completed, you will be redirected to a page, where you can pay the amount due with Alipay.
