Apply/delete LINE Pay card
You can apply for a LINE Pay card from the LINE Pay main menu.
To apply for a card, you just need to enter your name and address. Your card will be sent by surface mail to the address you entered in your application, and usually takes around one or two weeks to arrive.
Once you receive your LINE Pay card, you can start using it after you activate it from the LINE Pay main menu.
Note: If you already have a virtual card, you will be restricted from using it to make payments online until you have activated your LINE Pay card.
You can remove the restriction temporarily by going to the LINE Pay main menu, tapping LINE Pay Card, and then switching For online use ON. This will remove the restriction for one hour, after which it will automatically be applied again.
For information on creating a virtual card, see this Help article.
Only one LINE Pay card can be issued per LINE account, so if you already have a card, you won't be able to apply for any more.
Also, you may be restricted from having a card issued if you've deleted multiple cards within a certain period of time.
If you don't already have a LINE Pay card and are unable to have one issued, please contact us via the Inquiry Form.
After you've applied for a LINE Pay card, you'll receive a chat notification from the LINEウォレット (LINE Wallet) official account when your card is ready to be mailed out.
Note: It can take a few days to prepare your card.
When your card is ready, it will be sent via surface mail and should arrive in approximately one to two weeks.
If you haven't received your card, see this Help article.
