In December 2012, "Ameba", which aims to become No. 1 in the smartphone market, and "T Point," the largest common point distribution company, announced a partnership.
SB Payment Service, the largest payment service, contributed to this alliance.
Listen to the aims of the three companies and the effects of the alliance.
* Reprinted from the case published in "Weekly Toyo Keizai" released on February 18, 2013. Affiliation department, job title, etc. are as of the time of publication.
Needless to say, T Point is the largest service for distributing common points.
Operated by T Point Japan, a subsidiary of Culture Convenience Club (CCC), which is familiar to TSUTAYA.
Currently, there are 96 T Point affiliated companies, and the total number of stores operated by the affiliated companies is 51,523.
The number of members is 42.97 million (as of the end of December 2012), and it is calculated that about one-third of Japan's total population is a member.
By being able to use T points on Ameba, T members will be able to use the T points they already have on Ameba.
As a result, it is expected that T-point users who have never used amoeba will take this opportunity to use amoeba.
In addition, CCC can approach about 8 million of the 42.97 million T members by e-mail, and plans to guide these members to amoeba through e-mail marketing and so on.
The company is the largest online payment company with an overwhelming No. 1 market share of 42.3% (*) in online payment services.
Annual transaction volume is 1,315.4 billion yen (FY2012 forecast).
