June 21, 2018

GMO Payment Gateway, Inc.

GMO Payment Gateway, Inc. became the first payment service provider to receive the highest rating, three stars, in the "monitoring" evaluation from HDI-Japan. HDI-Japan was established with the same concept as HDI, the world's biggest membership association in the support service industry, and is run by ThinkService K.K.

HDI ratings are provided by its examiners from the viewpoint of a customer and according to the evaluation guidelines based on the international standards of HDI. The ratings come on a scale of zero to three stars.

In the evaluation our customer support was especially recognized for its "customer- (merchant-) centric response" and the "proactive support to address both surfaced issues and those issues that have the potential to arise".

The examiners provided the following feedback

  • - All staff are positive, polite and respectful in providing support.
  • - Staff listen to what customers have to say and understand what they want. They address issues proactively.
  • - Smooth handling but not script-based. Aligned handling in the sense that staff confirm the understanding together with the customers.

GMO-PG's customer support target will be to continue being a partner that supports the growth of our merchants. We will further improve and reinforce our support system in order to become a trusted partner and to help as many merchants as possible.
