Scope

– To reduce dependence on cash, in April 2018 the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) released the Cashless Vision document, with recommendations to achieve at least a 40% cashless payment ratio by 2025. In this regard, the Cashless Promotion Association was established in July 2018, which aims to promote electronics payments in the country through various initiatives including the standardization of QR-code payments, raising awareness of electronic payments among individuals and businesses, promotion of cashless payments at self service kiosks, and the development and maintenance of cashless statistics.
– Due to rising demand among consumers and businesses in Japan, a new extension to the current Zengin System was made available in 2018, to allow after-hours faster payment transaction capability. Instant transfers are now possible 24/7 at the majority of financial institutions across Japan. Over 70% of Japanese banks have enrolled to use the new payment system. Unlike the earlier system, which allowed same-day money transfers in a specified time on weekdays, the new system now enables bank transfers throughout the day, including Saturdays and Sundays.
– To benefit from the growing preference for alternative payments, banks and payment service providers are launching new payment solutions, particularly QR-based solutions. In October 2018, the mobile payment solution PayPay was launched by the India-based payments firm Paytm, in a joint venture with SoftBank and Yahoo Japan. This solution enables users to make QR-based payments at merchant stores using their mobile phone. Previously, in September 2018, Amazon also launched its payments solution Amazon Pay in Japan, which enables users to make online payments using the stored payment card details, as well as QR-based in-store payments. In March 2019, Mizuho Bank launched the payment solution J-Coin Pay in cooperation with 60 other financial institutions; this solution enables users to make fund transfers and payments directly from their bank accounts.
