Guangzhou Daily (All Media Reporter Ni Ming) On January 6, Alipay launched its 2019 bill. Users can search their bills in the Alipay app to view their 2019 bill data. On the same day, “Alipay's 2019 bill” was on the hot search list of Weibo. From the discussion of netizens, many people were surprised: “Why is my total bill so high?” In this regard, Ant Financial explained Billing expenses are not consumption.
Ant Financial explained that this year's Alipay annual bill does not have the concept of total consumption, all adjusted to total expenditure. Specifically, the investment and wealth management, financial and insurance, human relationships, public welfare charity, and transfer recharge sections have been added over last year, so the total annual expenditures you see may be higher.
That is to say, the bill you see is not only counting consumption expenditures. The funds and insurance bought by users on Alipay, and transfers to their bank cards are all included in it, even if they are often "left hand to right hand". These factors have caused the data displayed on the Alipay bill to differ greatly from the actual expenditure that everyone feels.
Judging from the bill details, in 2019, Alipay bills only disclosed the five most publicly consumed sectors, such as home life, food and drink, transportation, clothing and dress, leisure and entertainment, learning and fitness, etc. The expenditure of other sectors was omitted.
In addition, compared with the 2018 annual bill, Alipay's 2019 bill also canceled the user's consumption ranking.
