Welcome to the Komoju API documentation.

Komoju is a Japanese payment gateway which supports all major payment methods in Japan(JPY). We offer a RESTful API and a Hosted Page for easy integrations. We also offer technical support in both English and Japanese to help you get started.

Creating an account

Sandbox

The purpose of the sandbox environment is to demonstrate all the functionality the production environment provides to aid in integration with the Komoju platform. You can create a sandbox account and begin testing by signing up. Once you've created an account you can access the sandbox environment using the following URL:

Production

Users can apply for production access through their sandbox account. You will need to provide details about your company, where you plan to use Komoju, and which payment methods you would like to use. Once you have been approved we will provide you credentials for a production account with access to live payments.

For general account enquiries, you can reach us using the Komoju contact form.

Payment methods

Currently we support eight payment methods: Domestic Credit Card, WebMoney, NET CASH, nanaco, BitCash, Bank transfer, Konbini (Convenience Store), and PayEasy payments.

Domestic Credit Cards

Many Japanese customers run into problems and failed/blocked transactions when trying to purchase from online retailers outside of Japan.

With Komoju, we work closely with a Japanese bank to ensure Japanese credit card transactions go through and are processed correctly.

Komoju handles delayed payment options, including Konbini, which is very popular in Japan for its security, anonymity and convenience.
