We're a team of cross-border commerce professionals
We pride ourselves on creating bridges between global businesses and Chinese consumers through our robust cross-border payment and marketing solutions.
Mobile payment is taking China by storm and changing daily commerce, in the form of QR codes.
In 2017, the transaction volume of mobile payment reached $18 trillion in China. Along with rising levels of income, more and more Chinese travel overseas for their vacations. Chinese tourists made 5 billion trips in 2017, with 129 million trips to destinations outside China. Following in the footsteps of Chinese travelers, Citcon was founded with the mission to provide a simple and scalable commerce solution allowing global businesses to connect and engage with Chinese consumers.
In 2015, Chuck Huang founded Citcon with a vision to transform the current credit card-based digital payment system into a mobile wallet payment and commerce system at the global scale. Since then, Citcon has quickly grown into a leader for the fast-growing retail, travel (hotel, food and beverage, transportation, entertainment) and e-commerce markets.
In North America, Citcon is the first and largest authorized merchant acquirer for both Alipay and WeChat Pay, two of the most popular mobile wallet providers in the world with over 1 billion active consumers.
Alipay and WeChat Pay are the most popular and convenient payment options for Chinese consumers to purchase goods and services in Chinese Yuan, and for merchants to settle in U.S. Dollars directly by Citcon. Adding these payment options allows brands to now tap into an even larger revenue stream from Chinese consumers who are the largest spenders and the fastest-growing traveler segment to North America.
Our sophisticated yet flexible online and in-person payment solutions have empowered global leading brands to optimize revenue growth without the costs and hassles of establishing a business entity in China.

Citcon Certified Partner Program
More than 5 billion people have access to mobile phones and only 1.2 billion have bank accounts. For this reason, financial institutions looking to increase their customer base are going mobile. Chinese consumers conduct 11 times more mobile payments than their counterparts in the United States, so as we look to the future of digital wallets, China is a natural place to start.
