With Alipay Transfer you can send money from your East West Bank account to your own or another individual’s personal Alipay account in China. The funds will be delivered in CNY, with East West Bank’s applicable real time foreign exchange rate displayed prior to submission.
All you need to get started is your recipient’s Alipay ID and full name. The purpose of transfer needs to be either “Home Remittance” or “Salary”.
Note: Currently, the Alipay Transfer service is available only to East West Bank checking or savings accounts with a U.S. mailing address.
