Keeping the payment license plate in formation, Station B has been in preparation for a long time

Why should Internet platforms pile up payment licenses?
First of allOnline is full of a large number of transaction scenarios, in general, Alipay, WeChat is the preferred payment channelHowever, in the process, the platform is required to pay a "channel fee" to Alipay and WeChat. Wang Xing of the United States has repeatedly publicly expressed dissatisfaction with the overpayment rate. Once a payment license is obtained, the platform can avoid "channel fees".
secondly Internet enterprises' business model closed-loop formation can not lack of payment links, to quick hands, shaking sound and so on, for example, although short video start, but with the live economy, the popularity of the net red economy, with goods has become one of the important ways of cashing out of short video platform, the platform on the one hand to provide users with a smoother shopping experience, on the other hand, also master the entire process of the transaction. In the first half of this year, the fast-tracker GMV reached 264 billion yuan, according to the financial report.

In the view of Station B,From the perspective of user experience and payment settlement, relying on external third-party payment channels is riskyThis is mentioned in its 2020 results. Station B also believes that if there is no security measures to control third-party payment service providers, there are hidden dangers in user privacy protection, online payment security vulnerabilities, etc., may lead to the loss of paid users.
It is worth noting thatSome of the funds settled through third-party payment channels will remain in accounts opened by B-stations on each payment platform.
