All Payment Methods for Japan: Cash
Cash payment options are key in some markets because not all shoppers are comfortable sharing their account or card information online, or they may not have a local bank, or prefer to pay in person. For these shoppers, cash payment options allow them to order online and pay in-person at a designated location (convenience store) or upon delivery of their order.
Konbini, which means “convenience store” in Japanese, allows shoppers to make in-store payments for online purchases in cash at convenience stores. It is the most common digital payment method in Japan after credit cards, making it an essential payment method for optimizing sales in Japan.
Japanese shoppers select Konbini at checkout and specify which convenience store they would like to make their cash payment. After completing their online order, the shopper receives a unique barcode and reference number which they can use to pay in cash at the specified store. Typically, shoppers have 6-7 days to make their payment before the order is cancelled. For orders involving a physical product, the product is shipped to the address provided by the shopper once the payment is completed in person.Features
