The account transfer service is a payment method through which users pay via bank account.
Since usage fees are automatically deducted from customers’ accounts on the due date each month, the service reduces risk for merchants in managing uncollected payments due to forgotten or late payments and improves efficiency in collecting payments. In addition, customers who do not have a credit card or who are reluctant to use credit cards on e-commerce sites can avail of this service with peace of mind, leading to new customer acquisition.
We have highlighted 4 major aspects of the service below. Please feel free to contact us about the operational flow or any other questions you may have.
There is less hassle for users as charges are made continuously without them needing to be conscious of having to pay, reducing cancellations and leading to higher retention rates.
Charges are automatically deducted from users’ accounts when the due date arrives, reducing the risk of delayed or unpaid charges.
Pay-as-you-go billing where payment amounts vary is also supported. This can be done by linking billing data that is based on users’ usage or purchase records.
Withdrawals from almost all bank accounts are supported, including Japan Post Bank and online banks, as well as commercial and regional banks nationwide.
Account transfers are used by customers across a wide range of services. For example, this service is extremely convenient for things such as utility bills that people pay over and over again at convenience stores, or for real estate transactions that require fixed monthly payments.
With the account transfer service, usage fees are deducted from users’ designated bank accounts.
