Today, Degica announced the launch of 41 KOMOJU apps on Shopify app store, enabling merchants to use a single account to accept payments via a wide range of well-known and trusted methods, such as Konbini and Paidy in Japan, Alipay in China and Toss in South Korea. This comes following a recent announcement from Shopify that it is updating the way merchants connect to PSPs, with all PSPs now required to provide their services via an app on the Shopify App Store. With this release, Degica has positioned itself as one of the few PSPs ready to facilitate support for customers under the new system.
Offered based on the company’s KOMOJU payments platform, the solution covers all the major payment methods across Japan, China, South Korea, Europe, and APAC countries. In line with Degica’s mission to create a connected, global marketplace, these new apps based on KOMOJU enable Asian businesses to accept payments from all over the world and open up European businesses to previously difficult-to-enter Asian markets.
“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 PSPs on the Shopify App Store,” says Jack Momose, CEO Degica. “We see these apps as offering major benefits to our merchant 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.”
Merchants looking to receive payments via Alipay, for instance, can search for KOMOJU on the list of payment providers or for “Alipay by KOMOJU” on the list of payment methods in payments settings and immediately use this payment method thanks to their KOMOJU credentials. Additionally, any merchants using Shopify can now go global. They 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.
