Gain your Japanese customers’ trust and increase your sales

Nothing is more frustrating than carrying coins because you can’t get a credit card in Japan. It’s notoriously hard to get approved for a card, even with the most foreigner-friendly companies.

Paypay not only solves this problem, but already has more than 3 million merchants, an industry-leading number in a country with about 5.3 million businesses, according to government data.

Offer PayPay in Japan through a local partner

PayPay is emerging as key driver of a government-supported consumer shift away from cash as Japan grapples with deepening labour shortages and the need for social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Benefits

Reach more consumers

Japan’s youth still has a big number of unbanked adults, with this payment method you allow the consumer to pay without having a bank account or a credit card.

More security and convenience

All customer data is input in the digital wallet before starting to pay for their purchase, creating an extra layer of security in the authentication process, which is reflected in a great performance to the merchant.

Real-time confirmation

The merchant is notified as soon as the payment is completed in the digital wallet environment, and the customers don’t have to wait to receive confirmation of its purchase.
