LINE Pay is a payment system that LINE users can use at LINE Pay member stores.
There are two types of APIs: “Online API,” which lets you use LINE Pay on online stores, and “Offline API,” which lets you use LINE Pay on POS systems used in physical stores.
You can use “General Payment” with the Offline API. With the Online API, you can use “General Payment,” “LINE Checkout,” and “Automatic Payment.”

Payment method Description
General payment The most basic payment method. This API lets you use LINE Pay with your physical store's POS system.
You can use the same payment method as "General payment".

In addition, when delivering products, the service can obtain, with the consent of the end user, information such as the name, phone number, and address registered in "LINE Profile+".
Automatic payment This is a method where you select the "General payment" payment method for the first time, and future payments are made automatically.

Regardless of the payment method, end users can pay using their LINE Pay balance, credit card, bank account, or LINE Points.

LINE Pay can be combined with the Messaging API, LIFF app, and LINE MINI App to free end users from a variety of stresses.

For example, consider the stress faced by end users who want to buy a product.

  • They have to open their browser again and go to another site to log in or register.
  • They have to manually enter their name and address.
  • They have to make sure that the site is secure and then correctly enter their credit card information.

LINE Pay is the perfect solution to free end users from these various stresses and allows them to smoothly purchase products.
