Payment Company Profile: China UnionPay

Summary

China UnionPay (CUP) is a global bank card scheme established under the approval of the People’s Bank of China and the State Council in March 2002. It is the sole scheme provider of payment cards in China. According to Chinese central bank regulations, all card issuers in the country are required to route yuan-based transactions through CUP’s electronic payment network.

Card issuance under the UnionPay brand is mostly concentrated in China, with a limited presence in overseas markets. UnionPay founded its UnionPay International subsidiary in 2004 to capitalize on rising demand for payment cards among Chinese students studying abroad, international travelers, and the overseas Chinese diaspora.

While issuance of UnionPay cards is limited to 48 countries, they are accepted in 168 countries globally, supported by CUP’s collaboration with international banks and payment service providers including HSBC, Citibank, Standard Chartered Bank, Discover, JCB, Bank of New Zealand, PayPal, and Bank of Hawaii.
