■ Outline of "PayPay"
Since "PayPay", a smartphone payment service in which customers use QR Codes or barcodes to pay in stores, had supported online payment in June 2019, it has been used on some EC sites such as "Yahoo! Shopping" and "Yahoo! Auction". Taking advantage of this opportunity, PayPay will provide its service to more EC and internet service providers.
When paying on an e-commerce website or online service, the customer selects "PayPay" and then completes the payment by simply choosing "PayPay Balance"*1 or credit card on the "PayPay" payment screen. The customer can pay speedily without having to enter credit card or other information each time, which improves convenience and prevents customers from abandoning the purchase at the payment screen. E-commerce business operators who introduce "PayPay" can access the more than 20 million*2 "PayPay" users as sales leads and encourage these users to visit their e-commerce sites.
