YesWellness.com, a Leading Provider of Canadian Supplements is Proud to Announce they Now Accept China UnionPay.

Online PR News – 18-November-2015 – Surrey, BC – Since Canada was granted Approved Destination Status by the Chinese government, there has been a steady increase in Chinese tourism. This has resulted in an increase in Chinese spending in Canada, which when combined with a Chinese boom in natural health products, vitamins, and supplements has motivated YesWellness.com to accept China UnionPay – the leading domestic bank card in China.

First Canada is the largest overseas pleasure travel market for Chinese tourists. Second Chinese consumers are increasingly interested in dietary supplements vitamins and preventive medication resulting in a boom in the health product sector in China and finally Chinese consumers are also increasingly likely to look for international vitamin and supplement brands they can trust.

In June 2010, Canada was granted Approved Destination Status by the Chinese government, and since there have been steady increases in tourism particularly to Vancouver and Toronto. According to DestinationCanada.com, the year-to-year rate of increase for inbound travel from China to Canada has increased 24%. More importantly, this has led to a significant impact on the Canadian economy, and in 2014 Chinese visitors spent an estimated $920 million in Canada – an average of $2 325 per trip. Not surprisingly, capitalizing on this new revenue stream has become a focus of the retail industry.

"Market research points to a few very interesting trends coming out of China," says YesWellness.com President Dave Keighron. "First, Canada is the largest overseas pleasure travel market for Chinese tourists. Second, Chinese consumers are increasingly interested in Dietary Supplements, vitamins, and preventive medication resulting in a boom in the health product sector in China; and finally, Chinese consumers are also increasingly likely to look for international vitamin and supplement brands they can trust."
