Convenience Store Payment

Convenience Store Payment

▼ Convenience Store Payment
It is a payment method that enables shoppers to make payments through convenience stores, with a payment number received after finishing an order on your website.
Convenience Store Payment allows your customers to pay anytime and anywhere in Japan.

Three reasons to choose the Convenience Store Payment method:

  • 1.It allows you to set up the due date for payments.
  • 2.It solves the problem of extra paper work, because it allows you to send a payment number via e-mail.
  • 3.It prevents unnecessary costs, such as repeated requests for the payment, because it eliminates mistakes in the deposit amount.

Convenience Store Payment responds to specific needs of customers

Convenience Store Payment covers a wide range of customers, including those who don’t have a credit card and those who don’t want to have one, because it doesn’t require a credit guarantee. Thus, it is rightly considered to be a very convenient and optimal means of payment.

In addition, we are proud to say that this method of payment is highly recognized by both online stores and buyers, as a payments method for those aged 10-20 who are not eligible for credit cards. This type of payment is also very popular among women, because it is safe and easy to use.

Considering the advantages of the convenience store payment, we recommend it to those businesses who sell its products and services to customer layers mentioned above.
