E-Tong Card (e通卡), an electronic payment card issued by the Xiamen E-Tong Card Co. Ltd to pay fares for public transportion in Xiamen, can now be used to pay for fares in nearly 80% of the taxis in the city.

According to the city's traffic department, all blue taxis (Haixia Taxis, White Crane Friendship Taxis and Shunlian Taxis), all tele-call taxis and Kunchi, Lianyi and Yinghua Taxis allow E-Tong Card holders to tap their cards to pay taxi fares.

Currently, the E-Tong Card is widely used in many areas of Xiamen’s public transportation, like the BRT, public buses, ferries, taxies, and micro payments in some supermarkets, hospitals and recreation venues.

On Dec 31, 2011, Xiamen E-Tong Card obtained the business license for payment transactions from China's central bank, becoming the first third-party payment agency in Fujian to issue and accept prepaid cards.
