Seoul, South Korea / Tokyo, Japan - NAVER Pay has expanded its reach in Japan. The expansion includes cooperation with PayPay merchants through Alipay Plus.
As of January 29, NAVER Pay X Alipay Plus on-site payments are available at PayPay merchant locations displaying Alipay Plus partner logos.
This expansion allows NAVER Pay users to make payments at a wider range of Japanese establishments, such as convenience stores, shopping malls, duty-free shops and restaurants, without the need for currency exchange.
PayPay is Japan's leading QR payment brand, supporting more than 3 million merchants.
