Signed investment contract in Tokyo, Japan, with the K-ICT Born2Global Centre on May 11

Preparing to enter Japanese market with its phone-to-phone payment service

Attracted foreign investment from Japan’s Miroku Jyoho Service  

 

Hankook NFC, a startup company that has developed an NFC mobile payment system and authentication service, has secured a total of KRW 5.5 billion (USD 4.8 million) in funding through a series of investments.

 

The K-ICT Born2Golbal Centre, a government agency that provides support for startups, announced that Hankook NFC, which has been a member of Born2Global since last year, attracted an investment of KRW 3 billion (USD 2.6 million) from Japan’s Miroku Jyoho Service (MJS) and signed a service partnership agreement with the company on May 16.

 

MJS made the decision to sign an investment contract after holding a discussion with Hankook NFC and Born2Global in Tokyo on May 11.

 

This investment is the first foreign investment that Hankook NFC has attracted, since last year when the company secured domestic investments from KDB Capital and L&S Venture Capital. In order to attract investments, Hankook NFC received support from Born2Global, including consultations regarding audits and the filing of overseas patent applications.

 

“Apple Pay is extremely popular in Japan, but the lack of NFC readers in the city, with the exception of subway stations and a few convenience stores, has restricted the expansion of the service,” explained Richard Hwang, CEO of Hankook NFC. “[With our service], merchants can simply install a phone-to-phone payment application on their mobile devices, allowing them to accept Apply Pay, credit cards, and e-money without having to replace their POS terminals. We believe this will bring greater innovation to the Japanese payments market.”

 

MJS develops and provides financial accounting systems and management information services. The company entered the fintech industry with its launch of a subsidiary called MJS Finance & Technology, and has since established a number of subsidiaries that provide fintech services within Japan. As a major Japanese company, MJS is listed on the First Section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange.

 


 

Using Hankook NFC’s patented technology, MJS will oversee the introduction and operation of a phone-to-phone payment service in Japan and conduct related marketing activities and services. The two companies are also planning to expand their collaboration with the aim of providing phone-to-phone payment services throughout Asia.

 

In the Japanese market, credit card payments account for about 17 percent of all payments. Due to the high card processing fees, general merchants typically do not accept credit cards. The inability to use credit cards at stores was voted by foreigners as one of the top complaints about staying Japan. Now, however, with the upcoming Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics, the government and card companies are working to expand the credit card payment infrastructure in the country.

 

 

Hankook NFC’s phone-to-phone payment service allows a smartphone to replace a POS terminal by simply installing an application. Since there is no need to purchase a terminal or install a private line for credit card transactions, the processing fees for the service are quite low.

 

Currently in charge of providing technology and developing the service, Hankook NFC is planning to release a phone-to-phone transaction service within this year that allows small merchants and private business owners to receive payments using Apple Pay without having to install separate POS terminals or NFC dongles.

 

On May 11 and 12, Hankook NFC went to Tokyo with Born2Global as part of the “Go-To-Market Road Show” program. The event provided a great opportunity for Hankook NFC to search for ways to enter the Japanese market, forge business connections, and network with other businesses by holding meetings with major partner companies in Japan and participating in Japan IT Week Spring 2017. The company also gained valuable knowledge on how to enter and succeed in the Japanese market through the lectures and mentoring service offered by Jiransoft and other Korean companies that have already advanced into Japan.
