Message from the CEO
At NETSTARS, we are pioneering QR code payments in Japan.
Though we have for many years offered our services to businesses, storefronts, and more, society is now forced to undergo great change in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.
If anything positive has come from this upheaval, it is that cashless payment is becoming standard throughout Japan, and that we are contributing to this growth in our own small way.
Let the payments go smoother
Make the payment transactions more secured, convenient and efficient.
This is a major theme that we at NETSTARS will take on going into the future.
Our struggle will be to innovate in payment methods, mitigate the inconveniences inherent in all forms of communication, and facilitate smoother connections between people and society amid rapid changes in the social fabric around us.
With this concept in mind, we at NETSTARS will taking on greater challenges in more business areas than before, being consistent in providing fintech services that make the world a little more convenient and facilitate smoother connections between people and society.
At NETSTARS, we have just launched ourselves into what we call our “Second Founding.”
As a pioneer in QR code payments, we will promote cashless transactions, an issue facing Japan, and contribute to digital transformation (DX) through mini-applications. Through our business activities, we will contribute to the realization of a sustainable, diverse, and inclusive society.
In closing, it is my humble hope that we may expect your continued support and patronage of NETSTARS Co., Ltd. as we experience greater growth into the future.
