Mar 02, 2018 Legal Comments Off on Mobile payment supported at Lantern Festival cashless market
Taipei, A cashless market at the 2018 Taiwan Lantern Festival in Chiayi County makes this year's festival the most convenient one to date, as vendors are accepting purchases made via Apple Pay, Android Pay, Samsung Pay and other domestic mobile payment apps.
The market, which debuted Feb. 16 along with the start of this year's Taiwan Lantern Festival, offers a wide variety of payment methods, including credit cards, contactless smart cards and even mobile payment apps.
With both the central and local governments eagerly promoting the use of mobile payment apps, vendors at the market have been supporting not only the big three mobile payment apps -- Apple Pay, Android Pay and Samsung Pay -- but also a few local ones as well.
Chunghua Telecom Co., which has been a sponsor of the main lantern of the festival for the past 20 years, has made sure that its own mobile payment app -- the Hami Wallet -- is supported at the market.
Targeting the tens of thousands of people who are expected to visit the festival until it winds up March 11, Far EasTone Telecommunications Co. is also promoting its mobile wallet, the friDay wallet, at the festival.
Those who go to its booth at the festival and complete registration for the friDay wallet will receive special discounts on purchases at the market.
The 2018 Taiwan Lantern Festival showcases a wide variety of traditional and modern lanterns that reflect the beauty of Taiwan and Chiayi culture.
