Whenever I shop in Japan, I often see the word “PayPay” at the cash register. PayPay is a Japanese mobile payment service. Japan lags behind other advanced countries when it comes to distribution of mobile payment systems. But the advent of PayPay has dramatically increased cashless payments. Some local stores only accept cash or PayPay. This is how accessible the platform is. 

This article will explain how to create and use PayPay account.

There are several ways to deposit money, but I will write down the simplest one. The easiest way is to make a deposit at a 7-Eleven (convenience store) ATM.

The deposit method is shown in the image below.

I recommend PayPay because it gives you some cashback when you use it.
