The service will start from September 2018, taking another step closer to their ultimate goal of “making Japan into a cashless society.”

■ What is “d pay” and why is it so popular?
“d pay” is a cashless payment service that runs on smartphones, with QR codes indicated on “d pay app” scanned by tablets terminals at venders. Two reasons why it’s popular: (1) simple billing system that comes with monthly cell phone subscription (2) earning “d points” as you shop.
■ All stores and shopping malls with NIPPON Tablet will accept “d pay”
Got free tablets from NIPPON Tablet already? Those will have “d pay” function as well as ones we are renting out to stores and malls throughout Japan from now on. All of our tablets will accept “d pay.” Certainly this will offer convenience to smartphone users, and we expect increasing number of merchant will introduce NIPPON Tablet to attract shoppers and promote their sales.
■ How can I apply?
Are you interested in having our tablets with “d pay” as your sales force? Please fill out the “inquiry” form on the NIPPON Tablet website and send it to us. We will contact you as soon as we can.
* The company name “NIPPON PAY” changed to “NIPPON Platform” on September 25, 2019.
