Degica onboards two new major clients to its KOMOJU payments platform


KOMOJU by Degica today announces partnerships with two new clients: Scalefast – a top enterprise digital e-commerce channel solution – and French e-commerce platform Prestashop, which boasts a leading position in open-source e-commerce solutions across Europe and Latin America.

KOMOJU meets a direct need for both companies as they look to expand in the Asia-Pacific region – opening up new markets by enabling the platforms’ customers to pay via all major Japanese and Korean payment methods.

“It is fantastic to see both Scalefast and Prestashop choosing KOMOJU as their Japanese and Korean payment provider. This is a sign of our rapid growth and shows how important it is to facilitate merchants’ access to these high-potential markets that have previously been difficult to enter due to cultural and linguistic barriers. Payment and website display in the local language is often the first step to any e-commerce business’s success and growth overseas and we are excited to make this happen,” says Jack Momose, CEO, Degica.

“When we needed Japanese and Korean payments, the decision was obvious. Providing simple integrations and English language support, Degica stands out among other Japanese payment providers. Given we were looking for serious support in the region, collaboration with KOMOJU was a no-brainer,” comments Scalefast’s Director of Payment and Fraud, Stéphane Martinez.

Joseba Fernández Florín, Head of Technology, Payment & Fraud at Scalefast, adds: “The integration with KOMOJU was straightforward, fast and efficient. Thanks to KOMOJU’s intuitive application programming interface (API), we were able to easily add all new payment methods. This was a huge advantage for us.”

“Payment is often the first step in any e-commerce business’s success and growth overseas. We believe KOMOJU’s expertise in Japan and Korea will help Prestashop users with their sales in the region,” says Michael Casson, Head of Partnerships at Prestashop.

As the leading local payment fintech company in Japan, KOMOJU aims to pave the way for thousands of small and medium-sized businesses from all over the world to get more access to the Japanese and South Korean markets. “We are very grateful that Scalefast and Prestashop have chosen KOMOJU as their Japanese and Korean payment provider,” comments Christian Desert, Vice President, Revenue & Growth at KOMOJU.
