考研英語時文賞讀(87):越來越多的人正在使用移動支付

  摘要:考研英語作為一門考研公共課,雖然大家都學了英語十幾年,卻仍經常有總分過線掛在英語上的情況,因此英語復習不單單是單詞、做題。閱讀作為考研英語的大頭,僅僅做考研真題或許沒法滿足你的閱讀量,因此幫幫之后會不定時推出一篇英文美文,這些文章都與考研英語閱讀同源,多讀必有好處。

  Use of mobile payment services skyrockets as consumers opt for convenience

  作為消費者更便捷的選擇,越來越多的人開始使用移動支付

  Whether it is the down payment on an apartment involving about 3 million yuan ($434,440), or just 2 yuan needed to buy a steamed stuffed bun for breakfast, Song Yu makes the payments with just a few clicks on his smartphone.

  無論是支付300萬元(約合434440美元)的房屋首付款,還是買一個只需要2元的包子當作早餐,宋羽只需在智能手機上點擊幾下就能付款。

  I usually put a few hundred yuan in my physical wallet, but I almost never use the cash unless I travel to remote villages, said Song, a 34-year-old freelance writer in Beijing.

  34歲的宋羽是北京的一名自由撰稿人,他說:“我通常會在錢包里放幾百元,但除了去偏遠的村莊旅行外,我幾乎不會用這些錢。”

  Cashless payments have become part of everyday life in China due to the rapid development of financial technology, or fintech.

  得益于金融技術的快速發展,無現金支付已經成為中國人日常生活的一部分。

  People can leave their homes without carrying cash or bank cards and can use digital wallet services on their phones for shopping, dining out, or to make donations.

  人們出門無需帶現金和銀行卡,用手機上的數字錢包就可以購物、外出就餐或捐款。

  The use of mobile payment services in China has skyrocketed in the past five years, with the total number of transactions reaching 277.39 trillion yuan last year, a rise of more than 27-fold from five years ago, according to a report issued by the People’s Bank of China.

  據中國人民銀行發布的一份報告顯示,過去五年來,中國移動支付服務的使用量激增,去年移動支付的交易總額達277.39萬億元,相較于五年前增長了27倍多。
