New service opens up Japanese market to international sellers

Award-winning, international FinTech payments and currency experts, World First, is launching a new service in Japan providing access to a new market for online sellers worldwide. International merchants selling to customers based in Japan can now save time and money when they transfer their sales proceeds home using World First’s award-winning service.

World First’s unique service makes it possible for marketplace sellers to sell on Japanese marketplaces and transfer their sale proceeds back to a ‘home’ account faster and cheaper than before. By removing unnecessary hurdles like the need to open a local bank account, World First is helping international sellers tap into Japan’s thriving eCommerce market and grow their online business by transferring sellers’ sales revenues home quickly, conveniently and economically.

World First’s launch in Japan adds to the markets and marketplaces that it can help online sellers worldwide access, joining existing services in the US, UK, Europe and Canada. World First already helps online sellers sell on marketplaces in these markets by offering flexible, fuss-free currency transfers at great exchange rates.

Commenting on the launch, Jabu Henson, Managing Director for World First Asia said;

“We are excited to be launching our award-winning service in Japan and helping online sellers make the most of the eCommerce opportunity in the region in the process. As the first provider to offer this service, we are opening up the attractive and fast-growing Japanese market to thousands of online sellers across the globe.

Online sellers can now benefit from World First’s fast, efficient and cost-effective service when doing business in Japan, allowing them to focus on other important things – like growing their business.”
