Maria Nikolova

The partnership will enable more than 37 million LINE Pay users in Japan to pay for merchant digital goods and services through the Boku platform.

Provider of mobile payment and mobile identity solutions Boku Inc (LON:BOKU) today announces a partnership with Japanese eWallet and QR code payment service providers LINE Pay.

This partnership will allow more than 37 million LINE Pay users in Japan to pay for merchant digital goods and services through the Boku platform.

Hisahiro Chofuku, CEO and President of LINE Pay, commented: “Both public and private sectors are proactively taking action to shift Japan’s long-standing cash society toward a cashless one. By joining forces with Boku, we’re aiming to expand LINE Pay’s services even further and do our part in advancing Japan’s cashless movement.”

Earlier in June, Boku announced a partnership with Japanese eWallet and QR code payment service PayPay. This partnership allows Boku merchants to offer the PayPay payment service through their existing connection and reinforces Boku’s commitment to enable its merchants to acquire new paying users by providing simple access to the best local payment options available.

PayPay and Boku have partnered together to offer a ‘card-like’ experience to Japanese consumers for the PayPay eWallet. PayPay users will be able to place their eWallet ‘on-file’ enabling AppStore, Game Console and digital OTT subscription services to take advantage of functionality traditionally associated with cards.
