~ Cashless experience is also implemented at the actual store! Some parents said, “The contents were easy for children to understand” and “I was satisfied with the fact that my children were able to think for themselves while shopping and paying.”

Rakuten Payment Co., Ltd. (hereafter referred to as “Rakuten Payment”) held a “Let’s Learn Cashless Classes for Parents and Children” on Sunday, April 16th.

Prior to holding this course, Rakuten Payment conducted an “original survey on children’s cashless education” online on January 18, 2023 (Wednesday). This survey was also conducted in 2020, and was surveyed along with the trends in responses over the past three years. As a result, we have come to understand the shift in awareness towards cashless education.
First, in response to the question, “Are you worried about letting your child use various cashless payment services?” 82%, down to 52% in this survey. It was found that the number of guardians who are worried has decreased to half, partly due to the topic of cashless payment. In addition, to the question, “Do you think your child understands the structure and management of money, including cashless payments?” % or more, in this survey, more than 70% of the respondents answered that they “understand”. I know it’s going up.
■ “Let’s learn about cashless payments for parents and children” on the day This class is aimed at 6- to 8-year-olds, with basic knowledge of “what is cashless?” and a simple quiz about familiar cashless payments. , Shopping experience using an actual convenience store, etc., along with various themes related to cashless.
On the day of the event, 13 pairs of parents and children
participated, and the children enthusiastically listened to the cashless explanation and actively raised their hands to answer the instructor’s questions, creating a lively atmosphere from beginning to end.
Also, in the actual convenience store shopping experience, the children experienced paying with the electronic money “Rakuten Edy” for the first time. When they saw how they could purchase products just by holding the Rakuten Edy card over the payment terminal, it was a big hit, with comments such as, “It’s fun to be able to shop just by touching it” and “It’s simple and easy.”
In addition, we held a cashless mini course for parents between cashless classes. Using Rakuten’s own survey data, he explained the convenience and safety of “Rakuten Edy”, “why cashless education is necessary now” and “how to improve children’s money literacy”. ■ Voices from parents who participated in the event (excerpt)
