■ Smart phone settlement with Amazon Pay

Amazon Pay is an online payment processing service that is owned by Amazon. It accepts payments online and on mobile. You can make payments for products and services using information stored in your Amazon accounts, not only on Amazon website, but also on Electric Commerce and at physical sores.

Amazon Pay installed on NIPPON tablets can be used as smart phone settlement services at physical shops. If you have the Amazon Shopping app, you can use Amazon Pay; payment is completed by showing the QR code on NIPPON Tablet. The payment will be charged from your bank account through your credit card, and there is no need of cash or your signature.
This is smooth settlement and will be a great benefit for customers and shops. NIPPON Tablet has provided tablet terminals installed Amazon Pay software from 29 August 2019, in Fukuoka, JAPAN. Fukuoka city is promoting cashless payments that do not require physical currency. Cashless payments will make life more convenient and improve productivity for small and medium sized businesses. This is a trial run under the “Fukuoka City Proof-of-Concept Full Support Business” Program.
