The worlds biggest payment gateway. A must! Especially for China http://www.alipay.com
This has been released http://www.woothemes.com/products/alipay-cross-border-payment-gateway/
I'm an American that launched an ecommerce site in China. I used that 3rd party extension for Alipay, but would love to have it integrated into woocommerce = more trustworthy. HUGE market here, and they only trust and use Alipay - they don't trust Paypal and few people have Mastercard/Visa.

Alipay also has my vote. I've actually noticed that someone in China seems to have developed a plugin for Woocommerce:
And here's a demo site:
I'll probably give this a try in the next couple of weeks!
yeah,we want it.
Im American, living in China, and trying to use WooCommerce to launch my site here. It would be great to have something direclty using a UnionPay system. I noticed the only two available are iPay88 and AlliedWallet.

Playing deveils advocate, perhaps you would have more Chinese customers if an Alipay plugin were available

The economy being down does not mean that *nobody* is buying stuff. Come on, don't be ignorant.
I appreciate this might be the de facto payment provider in China, but with only 59 votes, it's clear there's not a huge demand amongst our users and therefore unlikely we'll be building this internally right now. Nor is there much incentive for any of our third party developers to build it.
If you're desperate for the gateway then I'd suggest encouraging more people to vote (providing they're genuinely interested) or hire a developer to build it for you.
Some random Spain stuff is at the top of the payment gateway. Seriously? Who in Spain with their economy is buying *anything* right now? WooThemes, please show some business sense and develop AliPay soon. There are many scripts flying around on freelancer forums, so this really cannot be that difficult. Thanks.
Accidentically flagged it as inappropriate, sorry :(
But actually i strongly wish you guys can have alipay!!! Very important for chinese users....
