Payment Service Providers 💸
On April 26th, Degica announced the launch of 41 KOMOJU apps on Shopify, enabling retailers on the platform to accept payments through a variety of well-known and trusted payment service providers.
For instance, Shopify stores can now accept payments from Konbini and Paidy in Japan, Alipay in China and Toss in South Korea.
This news follows Shopify's recent announcement that the platform is changing how merchants connect with payment service providers, requiring all Shopify payment methods to provide their services through the Shopify App Store.
Whatsmore, Degica has positioned itself as one of the few payment service providers on Shopify that are equipped to assist consumers under the new system.
Degica's objective is to build a fair, worldwide marketplace for products and services, removing the barriers between industry markets.
Ulatimately, Degica makes the prospect of doing business anywhere in the world simpler than ever before for stores on Shopify, connecting, brands and shoppers with a variety of payment service providers.
Originally, Degica set foot in the video game publishing sector, discovering that it was required to develop an in-house payment solution to sell games to clients via major platforms in its home market of Japan.
However, the solution became so successful that over time, the team realised that the future of the company rested in removing similar impediments for other businesses.
So, today, Degica provides a variety of; payment service providers, AI translation and logistics support, enabling businesses around the world to easily access Japan's large and valuable market.
Additionally, Degica works to enable Shopify businesses from Japan and the rest of Asia to easily access Western markets through payment service providers in Europe and the United States.
KOMOJU (an acronym of the Japanese term "購入モジュール", meaning "buying module") was founded in 2016 by Degica with a single goal in mind: to make Japan simple.
To that aim, KOMOJU offers its clients access to worldwide payment service providers with over 50 foreign partners and more than 4,500 active merchants that operate across four regions.
Additionally, the solution is well-known for integrating with online platforms such as; Shopify, Wix, WooCommerce and Magento to provide merchants with access to all major payment methods in Japan, Korea and China.
Furthermore, KOMOJU offers its users access to an FX functionality that permits retailers to receive payments from a variety of payment service providers in their preferred currency in addition to processing local currencies.
Following the platform's early success, the original purpose of making Japan simple has been broadened and the next stage for KOMOJU and Degica is to continue to tear down barriers, doing business not just in and out of Japan, but across the globe on platforms such as Shopify, by building a fair and international marketplace for goods and services.
Accepting International Payments with KOMOJU
The solution, based on the KOMOJU payments platform, supports all major payment service providers for Shopify in; Japan, China, South Korea, Europe and APAC.
As a result, these new KOMOJU-based apps enable Asian firms to accept international payments, opening up previously difficult-to-enter Asian markets, following Degica's objective to establish a connected, global marketplace.
Jack Momose, the CEO of Degica stated:
"We are delighted that our team's hard work over the past months paid off and we were able to roll out these solutions so quickly, making us one of the first and most comprehensive payment service providers on the Shopify App Store.
We see these apps as offering major benefits to our clients, who can use their single KOMOJU account to gain secure access to all the major payment methods available on the platform, with competitive pricing, rapid pay-outs and market-leading integration into treasury systems."
So, for the merchants who would like to accept Alipay payments as one of their store's payment service providers, simply search for “KOMOJU” in the list of payment providers or "Alipay by KOMOJU" in the list of payment methods.
Additionally, any merchant on Shopify can now go global, as businesses on the platform do not need to be a European entity to accept European payments, nor do they have to be a Japanese entity to accept Japanese payments.
