At KendoStar, we accept payment via Credit/Debit card, PayPal, and Bank Transfer.
For Payment with Credt/Debit Cards :
At the moment, the online card processors that currently have licenses to operate here in Japan have several issues that conflict with our internal security policy.
We treat our customers' privacy with the utmost importance, and we refuse to deal with any outside company that may compromise our customers' payment information.
So in order to accept credit card payments in the safest possible way, we do so via PayPal, so that you can be assured that your payment details are safe and secure, and never made available to us or our staff. A PayPal account IS NOT required to make payment in this way*.
