UnionPay, previously known as China UnionPay, is China's bankcard brand. It was set up in 2002 in Shanghai, under the endorsement of China's national bank. With over 7.5 billion cards issued, and near universal UnionPay acceptance in China, it has become the biggest provider of bankcards on the planet. This is greater than Visa and Mastercard combined!
With UnionPay, Chinese consumers pay with a trusted and recognizable card brand, worldwide. As of March 2019, 52 million merchants in 174 countries accept UnionPay cards.
In the US, over 80% of merchants take UnionPay, which makes UnionPay acceptance greater than American Express. UnionPay cardholders can use nearly all ATMs in the US, too.
