Register a Platform Merchant (Marketplace Business) account for your business entity

Get started

The first step to adopt Marketplace Use Case is registering a "Platform Merchant (Marketplace Business)" merchant account for your business entity.

Key prerequisites:

  1. We only accept Japanese entities (including Corporations and Sole Proprietorships) to register a Platform Merchant account.
  2. You must have a Japanese Bank Account to receive payouts in JPY from KOMOJU.

1. Get credentials

Contact our Account Manager or send an inquiry via inquiry form to ask for a credential to log in KOMOJU's dashboard and access the "Test" environment.

2. Integrate APIs

Integrate Platform Model APIs and create mock Payout Merchant accounts under your Platform Merchant (Marketplace Business) account via our APIs. After that, create mock payments to ensure the processing works well. Ultimately, it's better to execute further tests to ensure your overall API integration works well.

Please ensure you acquire the following capabilities after integrating our APIs:

After you complete tests on your side in the "Test" environment, you can get into the next step.
