US commercial regions now accept Chinese Yuan payments from China based customers.

AWS has partnered with Lianlian Yintong Electronic Payment Co., Ltd. (“Lianlian Pay”), a licensed payment processor in China, to enable China based customers using services billed by AWS Inc. to pay their invoices in Chinese Yuan. Customers no longer need to navigate complicated and time consuming foreign exchange requirements to produce the US dollars needed to pay their monthly invoice. Starting today, customers only need to conduct a one-time registration process through the AWS Billing Console to bind their China UnionPay credit card to their AWS account. One registered, customer’s following month anniversary billings will be deducted automatically through their China UnionPay credit card in Chinese Yuan.
