At the beginning of the new year, many platforms launch users’ annual report of 2019. China’s leading online payment app Alipay also released a brief annual bill for users on Monday. How much have you spent last year?
When did I become so rich?
After the launch of the annual bill, many netizens just doubted themselves, wondering this question.
“Checking your Alipay bill” quickly surged as a hot topic on various social media platforms.
Users can log on to Alipay and check their summary of transactions over the year through their personal account in the app or search the keyword in the app’s homepage.
However, the total amount of annual spending is beyond many people’s imagination. Lots of people seemed shocked to see the bills.
Most of the common reactions to the bills and data are:
△ “How is it possible I’ve spent so much?”
△ “When did I become so rich? Seriously?”
△ “Did I earn so much last year?”
So how much have you spent last year? Are you the rich man you never know? Let’s check
Search “2019年账单” (2019 annual bills) in the Alipay app, and click the link to open an official mini-program.
Then click the book “2019支付宝年账单” (My Memories of 2019) shown on the starting page, and enter your payment password to check the annual review.

Where you spend your money shows your inner character.
No wonder people often say we should start from changing our spending habits in order to change ourselves. Or maybe you’ve already felt quite satisfied with how you spent the money.
But back to the topic, people are not just joking about the bill. Many users questioned the accuracy of the number.
Finally, you’ll see the total amount of your annual expense. There’re also details like how much you’ve spent in food, clothing, living, entertainment, transportation, and so on.
“I don’t think it is accurate at all. I spent 110,000 yuan last year? I don’t have that much in my bank and I’m not in debt,” a user said on the Internet.
“I think the numbers are fake. I’m a poor college student. It shows I spent RMB 40,000 last year, I don’t believe it. My annual household income is not even that much,” another Weibo user responded.
Some Weibo users speculated that Alipay’s annual reports take into account transfers between the user’s bank accounts and purchases of products that have been returned.
