In a press release announcing the figures, Line states:
“The Line Pay service is part of Line Corporation’s vision for becoming a wide-ranging “Smart Portal” for people’s lives, serving as a gateway to a world where vast arrays of information and services, both online and offline, are seamlessly connected. Within that vision, Line Pay connects many of those other lifestyle services, and so Line will continue to work with banks, expand affiliates, add new features, aggressively provide new campaigns to users, improve convenience and offer more opportunities to use Line Pay.”
Line Pay has been used in several promotions, including a New Year promotion to send monetary gifts as Line Credit, plus the company continues to sign new partnerships to make the service more convenient. These include the Lawson convenience store, and with banks in Taiwan and Indonesia. Additionally, physical Line Pay Cards are available in Japan.
