  • Alipay, China’s leading online payment system owned by e-commerce giant Alibaba Group, says it is now the world’s top mobile-payment service, with a total volume of $150 billion in 2013.

    Over 100 million registered mobile users have completed more than 2.78 billion transactions on Alipay Wallet, Alipay said Saturday on its official account on weibo, China’s Twitter-like platform.

    The total volume of Alipay’s mobile payments has surged past 900 billion yuan, or $150 billion, surpassing the combined volume of U.S.-based rivals PayPal (owned by EBay EBAY 0.27% ) and privately held Square Inc. , which was about $50 billion last year, Alipay estimated.

    In addition, during the recent seven-day Chinese New Year holiday, when banks were closed, Alipay Wallet users made over 100 million transactions on their phones, accounting for 52% of total online payment deals, Alipay said. Part of this involved the Chinese tradition of gifting money during the holiday to family and friends, with such gifts accounting for 200 million yuan in transactions, the company said.

    Another $2B/$6B when Alipay goes public!!!!!

    IG, the London-listed financial spread betting firm, is offering a grey market where traders can actually bet where they expect Alibaba's market value could be at the close of the first trading day. IG said it only had buy orders from clients, which pushed expectations for Alibaba's market cap to around $250 billion.

  • Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. is expected to file the prospectus for its U.S. initial public offering next week, sources said on Wednesday, moving closer to what could be the biggest-ever listing by a technology firm.

    Alibaba's documents could be filed as soon as Monday, added the sources, who couldn't be named because the plans aren't yet public. The IPO could be worth more than $16 billion, surpassing the previous record for a technology share sale set by Facebook Inc in 2012, Reuters previously reported.
