We’re pleased to announce Convenience Store (Konbini Payment) and other Japanese payment options are now available on Shopify through the KOMOJU payment platform. KOMOJU is a Japanese payment provider offering a one-stop integration for all Japanese payment methods.
Konbini (which means “convenience store” in Japanese) enables the shopper to order goods and services online, and to pay for them over the counter in a convenience store. Japan has an extensive network of convenience stores, which makes this payment method very accessible to the Japanese shopper.
