Paidy Launches “Paidy Link” to Instantly Link Paidy Accounts to Digital Wallets

“Paidy Inc., Japan’s leading “Buy Now Pay Later” provider, which serves 700,000 online merchants in Japan, announced on April 16 Paidy Link, a new feature in the Paidy app, that allows users to instantly link digital wallets with their Paidy accounts. The first digital wallet to integrate with Paidy Link is PayPal with plans to expand in the future through cooperation with a variety of partners. By using Paidy Link with PayPal, consumers in Japan can shop for the goods that they love at PayPal’s 29 million merchants around the world, all via PayPal checkout. Each purchase will be automatically converted into a Japanese yen purchase with Paidy that can be settled each month with Paidy “Atobarai,” the Buy Now Pay Later service, or 3-Pay. This will allow Paidy users to manage their budgets easily and wisely within the Paidy app.”
