Accept Japanese
Payment Methods

Open your store to Japan, the world’s fourth largest ecommerce market.

Japan remains a largely cash-based market, where convenience store payments are hugely popular for making online purchases. Credit cards are still the most used payment method, however, customers are very careful with trusting their card information online and might prefer an alternative payment method if it is provided.

On top of that, QR code apps that let customers collect rewards for shopping offline and online have been growing exponentially recently, and are a preferred payment method among the younger, digitally savvy audience.

With KOMOJU, you can ensure that most of the visits to your website end in a successful purchase.
