In response to the ever increasing Internet company credit crisis, China Internet Network Information Center is proceeding with a domain name management credit system for e-commerce sites.
With its unparalleled advantage in domain name resource management, CNNIC says it will build an authoritative and solid credit service platform through a full-range verification process. With the development of China's digital sector, e-commerce websites are facing more credit problems as they deal with online buyers. CNNIC says that bad online shopping behaviour causes more than CNY500 billion in economic loss to China each year.
It is now increasingly important to set up a credit system that conforms to e-commerce's characteristics in China, and can efficiently guarantee online credit for advancing enterprises' informationization and lowering the operation cost for enterprise websites.
In January 2008, Alipay, one of China's largest independent and third-party payment platform, has announced the launch of a seller credit program in cooperation with China Construction Bank. Alipay seller credit service is based on the credit of Taobao.com's users and their interactions with the Alipay service. CCB is the loan lending party, but all procedures of loan applications and returns will be done within a user's Alipay account. With this service, qualified sellers of Taobao.com will also get up to CNY100,000 individual small sum loans to solve their funding shortages. AliPay is a division of Alibaba.com and enables individuals and businesses to securely and conveniently send and receive payments online. AliPay is a service tailored to meet the local needs of China, building on the existing financial infrastructure of bank accounts and credit cards, and utilizing proprietary fraud prevention systems to create a safe payment solution.
