Jkopay to expand in Japan despite COVID-19 crisisBy Kao Shih-ching / Staff reporterJkopay Co Ltd (街口支付) plans to continue the expansion of its cross-border mobile payment service in Japan, despite the country’s COVID-19 outbreak, the company said on Tuesday. “We have already developed plans to expand into other Asian countries, but decided to put them on hold due to the virus crisis,” Hu said. Jkopay in January launched its cross-border payment service in Japan by collaborating with several Japanese banks and payment service providers. LINE Biz+ Taiwan Ltd (連加網路) said that it might postpone the launch of its cross-border payment service because of the coronavirus. Partnering with four regional peers in Japan, South Korea and Thailand, the company would soon complete all of the preparatory work, Jeong said.
