A course was held in Tokyo on the 11th to help middle-aged people learn how to pay with smartphones so that they can use the point reduction system that starts in line with the increase in the consumption tax rate next month.
This course was opened by a magazine publisher for middle-aged and elderly women, and was attended mainly by 35 women in their 60s and 70s.
First of all, if the instructor pays with a smartphone or card when shopping at a small and medium-sized store for 9 months from 1st of next month to June of next year, up to 5% will be returned with points, etc. We introduced what you can find in the posters and stickers.
In addition, he explained that it is important for smartphones to make payments by locking the smartphone to prevent unauthorized use and checking the details frequently.
After this, participants learned how to actually put a payment application on their smartphone and make a payment.
A 79-year-old woman who participated in the lecture said, “I don't want to be bothered with exchanging coins.
A 68-year-old woman said, "I want to use it because it is attractive to get points."
“This course was so popular that it would become full soon after recruitment. Although there is anxiety about cashless payment, I would like to master it in order to keep up with the movement of society. I feel that there are many seniors. "
