With LINE Pay, you can easily make payments with the money added to your LINE Pay balance, Add & Pay, or a registered credit/debit card (only available with some LINE service merchants). You can also make debit payments with a linked bank account.
Note: Due to enhanced security, you may be asked to upload documents for identity verification when linking a bank.
Accepted payment methods will vary by merchant. Be sure to check each merchant’s payment page to see which options are available.
You can search for stores and services that accept LINE Pay from Find a Store on the LINE Pay main menu. Use your current location or search for a keyword.
Payments for non-LINE-related stores and services can only be made using your LINE Pay balance or Add & Pay.
Note: You can also use a credit card registered to LINE Pay when making online payments for LINE services.
LINE Pay cards and virtual cards can be used at merchants where JCB cards are accepted.
Google Pay can be used at merchants that accept QUICPay+ all over Japan. For more information, see here (only available in Japanese).

Yes, you can make payments at LINE Pay affiliated stores.
When you purchase an item, use your smartphone to scan the QR or bar code posted at the store to bring up the payment confirmation screen. Afterwards, enter your passcode to complete the transaction.
See here for a list of merchants that accept payments with LINE Pay (only available in Japanese).
To make payments:
1. From the LINE Pay main menu, tap Scan.
2. Line up the QR code inside the frame.
Note: If you can't scan the code, tap Enter Code Number at the bottom of the screen and manually enter the code number that appears with the QR code.
When making code payments, you can use your LINE Pay balance, Add & Pay, Points, and LINE Pay Bonus.
Note: Any credit card registered to your LINE Pay account other than the Visa LINE Pay credit card cannot be used with code payments.
To use your LINE Pay balance, you need to add money to it first. For information on how to do so, see this Help article.
For details about Add & Pay and the Visa LINE Pay credit card, see the following Help articles.
If you're unable to make a payment at a store that accepts code payments, it may be due to one of the following reasons.
• You're connected to a Wi-Fi network.
You may get a security error if you're connected to a store's Wi-Fi network. Disconnect from the Wi-Fi network and try making the payment once again.
• Your Visa LINE Pay credit card was not registered to LINE Pay properly (for using Add & Pay as your payment method).
For information on how to register your Visa LINE Pay credit card, see this Help article.
Note: If you want to use your LINE Pay balance as your payment method, tap Add & Pay at the top of the LINE Pay main menu and select LINE Pay balance.
• The code has expired.
Codes are only valid for five minutes. Tap Refresh and try making the payment again with a new code.
• You don't have enough money in your LINE Pay balance.
Try making the code payment again after adding money to your balance.
Note: You can check your balance from the My Code screen and the LINE Pay main menu.
• You didn't select a payment method.
You need to select a payment method the first time you make a code payment. Select LINE Pay balance or Add & Pay next to Payment method, read the important notes, then tap OK.
• Your screen is too dark or the code is not fully displayed.
Your code cannot be scanned if your screen's brightness is set too low. Make sure to increase the brightness before making a My Code payment. Also, your code may not fully appear depending on the size of your smartphone's screen. In this case, adjust the screen so your code is displayed completely.
• The cashier at the store didn't select LINE Pay as the payment method.
Tell the cashier again that you are paying with LINE Pay.
If you cancel a payment, any Points that you used will be refunded along with the amount used from your LINE Pay balance.
Note: In the case of partial cancelations, your LINE Pay balance refund will be prioritized.
If you have a Japanese LINE Pay account and used Points with Add & Pay, see this Help article.
You can specify the number of Points you want to use for online payments, Scan Bill payments, and Scan payments. The number of Points can't be specified for payments made with My Code, your LINE Pay card, or Google Pay.
If the setting to use LINE Points is turned on, payments will be made from your available Points first, and the remaining amount will be subtracted from your LINE Pay balance or from Add & Pay. If you don’t want to use your Points, you can turn them off by referring to the information in this Help article.
