About PayPay Inside-Out

Born in October of 2018 and enjoyed by many, PayPay’s growth story is not anywhere near over. What sort of a company is behind it? Who are its makers?

“PayPay Inside-Out” was launched as an in-house media in July 2020 by a handful of employees determined to shed light on the “people” and “culture” at PayPay for anyone to see.

As a baby of the pandemic, PayPay Inside-Out involves everything from interviews to writing articles being done online. Every single step is hand-made, by team members “working-from-anywhere” (WFA) across the country.

It is our sincerest hope that you “feel” PayPay through the eyes of the people working there.
