With the mission of “empowering people and society” through the Internet, our goal is to become the No.1 Internet services company in the world. Here are some key milestones in the history of Rakuten Group so far.
Rakuten Group is one of the world’s leading Internet service companies, providing a variety of consumer- and business-focused services including e-commerce, eBooks & eReading, travel, banking, securities, credit card, e-money, portal and media, online marketing and professional sports. Rakuten Group is expanding globally and currently has operations throughout Asia, Europe, the Americas, and Oceania.
The Rakuten Ecosystem, which is formed by various services offered by Rakuten Group, is a one-of-a-kind member-based business model that connects Rakuten services through the Rakuten Super Points reward system.
Rakuten members receive a Rakuten ID upon registration that is common to various Rakuten services, which all utilize Rakuten Super Points to reward loyal users and encourage the patronage of other Rakuten Group services. Furthermore, Rakuten’s convenient settlement services, such as Rakuten Card credit card and e-money service Rakuten Edy create a perfect mix of online and offline services.
The Rakuten Ecosystem and our membership database form the foundation of our business, but it also offers our members fun and convenient online shopping and service experiences. The synergies generated by the Rakuten Ecosystem multiply day-by-day and will continue to expand Rakuten Group Gross Transaction Volume and life-time value per member into the future.
