Japanese Yen receiving accounts

We are happy to announce that we have officially launched Japanese Yen (JPY) receiving accounts. This enables you to receive the proceeds from online sales in Japanese marketplaces, such as Amazon Japan and Rakuten, and bring your money home at great exchange rates. With World First, international sellers can have access to receiving accounts in the UK, USA, Canada, Europe and Japan, and receive money locally from global marketplaces easily.
