On February 17, 2017, Mr. Zhang did the first WeChat Pay transaction in North America, and the first Alipay transaction in Canada, both using QR code technology at a jewelry store in Ottawa where he bought a gift for his wife. Today, with thousands of merchants from Halifax to Vancouver, from modest restaurants to luxury brands, Motion Pay is the leading Alipay and WeChat Pay solution provider in North America. Born in Shandong, China, Mr. Zhang immigrated in 2000 to Ottawa, Canada. A few months after he arrived in the country, he successfully founded his first company, ComefromChina.com, an entrepreneurial story that has created many opportunities for the Canadian Chinese community by providing a platform for collaboration and discussion.
