Before sales data is finalized after using your card, LINE Pay Card will appear under the merchant field. Once the sales data has been finalized, the name of the store you used your LINE Pay card at will appear.
- It may take up to 2 months before sales data is finalized.
- The names of some merchants may appear immediately after making a purchase.
Depending on the merchant, payments may be processed on a later date after they are made.
When you make a payment with your LINE Pay card, the payment will be immediately withdrawn from your LINE Pay balance.
However, there are some merchants that will not immediately withdraw the balance. If you do not have a sufficient balance at the time the payment is withdrawn, you may overdraw your LINE Pay balance. In this case, please add money to bring up your account from a negative balance.
If you sign up as a member at some merchants, they will check the validity of your card by temporarily withdrawing money from your account. This amount will be refunded to your LINE Pay balance within 60 days.
Examples of merchants that do this:
Google Play, Google Checkout, etc.
Note: Other merchants in addition to the ones listed above may make temporary withdrawals from your balance.
With some merchants, payments may be processed on a later date after they are made, and not at the time you used your card. (E.g. Payments for the iTunes Store, Amazon, other monthly or annual payments, etc.)
If you find a payment which you do not remember making in your payment history, please contact us via the Problem Report Form.
When a merchant confirms the validity of your LINE Pay card, you may receive a notification saying that a payment of JPY 1 failed. In this case, it is possible that your LINE Pay card cannot be used at that merchant.
Note: Depending on the merchant, the test payment may be for between JPY 1 to JPY 9.
If you wish to confirm whether or not your LINE Pay card can be used at a certain merchant, please contact us via the Problem Report Form.
Some LINE Pay merchants do not withdraw payments from your balance at the time of purchase. If you do not have sufficient funds in your balance when the payment is withdrawn, it will result in a negative balance.
