Amazon Japan accepts UnionPay cards
TOKYO: Amazon.com Inc’s website in Japan has started accepting UnionPay cards, as the Web retailer steps up efforts to sell more merchandise to Chinese shoppers across Asia.
China UnionPay Co, with more than six billion cards in circulation, is now a key rival to Visa Inc, Mastercard Inc and other issuers and has become an important way for global retailers to attract Chinese tourists and consumers.
UnionPay could be used across Amazon Japan’s website from yesterday, said company. Bloomberg
