Japan's digital value growth: Runa's strategic role

Japan’s renowned tech landscape has created a robust digital payment ecosystem where cashless transactions aren’t just common but preferred. In a country where efficiency is paramount, particularly in Japan’s urban centers, stored value systems, like gift cards, digital wallets, and prepaid cards, offer convenient and swift transaction capabilities. Whether in-store, online, or via mobile applications, they’re essential tools for streamlining transactions, making them faster, more secure, and seamlessly integrated into consumers’ daily lives.

In its journey towards a digital-first economy, Japan’s gift card market is expected to soar from US$19.8 billion in 2022 to US$27.2 billion by 2027. This sector’s expansion creates opportunities for innovation, and with our tailored solutions for businesses’ evolving B2C payout needs.  

Runa is perfectly aligned to be a driving force in this growth. Our digital value infrastructure is designed to simplify costly and complex financial processes and deliver new levels of efficiency and customization. With Runa powering digital rewards, incentives, and payouts, businesses can focus on growth and innovation, rather than being bogged down by transactional inefficiencies.
