Mobile payment firm expands

UK-Japan News July 2017

Cambridge-based Limited, a platform for mobile payments, has announced a new payment method for Amazon customers in Japan with KDDI or NTT DOCOMO mobile phone accounts, the firm announced in a 6 June press release.

Customers are now able to pay for physical goods bought from Amazon without registering any bank cards by instead charging the purchase to their mobile phone bill. Users simply select the relevant option when checking out.

Carrier billing has long been popular in Japan, particularly with young consumers.
