Coin handling fees have been introduced one after another at major banks and regional banks due to the deterioration of the profit environment due to low interest rates, and Japan Post Bank has introduced it because the use of coins has increased year by year and the cost has increased. It is said that it was decided.



Recently, cashless payments have become widespread, but it is likely to have an impact at shops that often settle coins, temples and shrines that handle coins.



In addition, a fee will be required from the 17th for the use of the company's ATMs located outside the post office and Japan Post Bank stores, such as stations and airports, only on weekday nights and holidays.



Regarding the fees, the male user said, "There is no choice but to do so because other financial institutions also need fees."



On the other hand, a woman in her 80s who often uses the post office said, "Japan Post Bank uses it as a substitute for my wallet, but it becomes difficult to use if a fee is required."
