Get up to an additional 30% on Alipay refunds

Global Blue now offers an exciting new way for Alipay members to receive VAT refunds

Global Blue now offers an exciting new way for Alipay members to receive VAT refunds - direct to their Alipay wallet and in real-time. Available across 14 major airports across Europe, the service allows Alipay members to receive refunds in their home currency within seconds, with all payments visible via the Alipay app.

To mark the launch of the service, Alipay is offering up to an additional 30% on first instant refunds made through Global Blue between Monday 10 July and Thursday 31 August.

How does it work?

After making your purchases and completing your Tax Free Forms, simply open Alipay and present the refund operator at the airport with the barcode generated on your smartphone.

The operator will scan the barcode, confirm the refund amount and approve the payment to your Alipay account. You will then receive your tax refund and a red packet reward, credited to your Alipay account.


  • Diamond Members receive an additional 30% on their first tax refund transaction (Maximum 100 RMB)
  • Platinum Members receive an additional 15% on their first tax refund transaction (Maximum 50 RMB)
