With this new undertaking, retailers with shops on Ponpare Mall will be able to offer their products through Ponparemall Japan without any fees or product registrations. As processes such as the translation of product information, settlement, delivery, and customer support that were difficult for individual shops to support up until now will be conducted by Ponparemall JAPAN, this will increase the likelihood of sales to overseas users without having to change systems.
Furthermore, it will be possible to sell the products offered through Ponparemall JAPAN to members in 84 countries and regions around the world (as of the end of December 2015) of the Japan’s largest overseas forwarding and proxy purchasing service “Buyee” that is operated by tenso, inc. and has a member base of over 780,000 people. Buyee will make it possible for many members from Chinese and English-speaking countries who have never shopped through Ponpare Mall before to purchase products through Ponparemall JAPAN.
