Taipei to trial no-cash convenience store

Chloe Liao, Taipei; Adam Hwang, DIGITIMES 0

Taipei's Department of Information Technology, to promote its smart city program, will cooperate with OK Mart convenience store chain to set up a no-cash retail store at the city hall on a pilot basis.

The retail store is to let customers experience electronic payments only. It accepts Taiwan's major store-valued cards and mobile e-payment services such as Apple Pay, Line Pay and Alipay, the department said.

The department on June 25, 2017 launched pay.taipei, a smart platform via cooperation with O'Pay, JKO Pay and other e-payment operators to enable citizens to pay for roadside parking, water charges, taxes, administrative fees, traffic fines and medical care services at hospitals under the city government.
