Also, from 2006, we combined a red circle with a white "R" in the middle of the word "Rakuten"Kashiwa SatoIt was unified into a logo designed by. At the same time, internal documents such as fax sheets and envelopes designed by Kashiwa Sato were also introduced.
From July 2018, 7, the kanji ``One''motifThe corporate logo has been redesigned, and the corporate logos of group companies such as Rakuten Card and Rakuten Life Insurance, as well as service logos such as Rakuten Ichiba, have been gradually changed to new logos..
In recent years, it has been actively engaged in M & A and business alliances with the EC business since its establishment.The financial business, which accounts for about 4% of sales, has become the core, and the main business is becoming more and more like a financial company.Also, you will not have a large amount of interest-bearing debt..
According to Rakuten's consolidated financial results for the first quarter of 2006 announced in May 5, sales of e-commerce companies such as the Internet market increased by 18% year-on-year to 1 million yen. It mentions changes in usage fees and card payment services. On the other hand, as of January to March 84.4, it has announced that it has 127 new stores and 2,000 new stores (2006% of the total of 1 stores). The number of new stores opened in the previous fiscal year was 3, and the number of stores closed was 1460, but the number of stores has decreased but profit has increased.
As a cause of this, June 2006, 6ZAKZAKIn 2002, the introduction of a "pay-as-you-go system" that collects an excess charge according to the sales amount of 100 million yen or more and the number of mails delivered in addition to the basic charge in 5 caused the store's payment to quintuple In addition to the above, the system was revised in 2006 to charge about 100% of "system usage fee" for sales up to 4 million yen, further increasing the burden on the store side (it was free before) ).
Rakuten GroupNew graduateIn the new employee training for employed employees, the task of "inviting family members, relatives, acquaintances, and friends to join the credit card" is set... An "introducer ID" is added to the personal information of the person who has joined by this solicitation, so that the company can know through which of the new graduates they joined.
From July 2016, the definition of spouse in the internal regulations was revised to include same-sex partners. Rakuten employees, even if they are of the same sex, will be targeted to employees who have a spouse if they submit and accept company-specified documents with signatures from both partners and a third party witness. Benefits available.
Completely cashless in sports industry
A professional sports team operated by a wholly owned subsidiary of Rakuten (NPB OfTohoku Rakuten Golden EaglesandJ League OfVISSEL KOBE), from the 2019 season, the home stadium (operated by the operating companies of both teams as an administrator)Rakuten Life Park Miyagi andNoevir Stadium Kobe) On the day of the hosting match held in ), we are working on "total cashless" for all stores inside and outside the stadium.
"Complete cashless" means, as a rule, "Rakuten Point Card" "((Rakuten cardCredit card" "(Rakuten BankDebit etc)debit card"Rakuten Pay" "Rakuten Edy"Limited to. Since we will not collect cash at all, we will newly establish it in the stadium from 2019 for spectators who do not have a credit card for various reasons (such as minors) and spectators who are not familiar with the relevant cashless payment method. "Rakuten cashless desk" is available. It offers services such as cash exchange, rental and sales of "Rakuten Edy" cards, and operation of cash charging machines. However, cash can also be used to purchase goods and spectator tickets on days when Tohoku Rakuten and Vissel are not involved.
Regarding this initiative, a person in charge of Rakuten said, "By making it completely cashless at the stadium, it may spread throughout the city and support the cashless society in Japan."Cashless societyIndicates that it is an initiative to promote But,Huffington postThe Japanese version isSocial experiment"How will cashless change the visitors' buying behavior," "What kind of goods can be sold in what time zone," etc.Collecting a huge amount of valuable dataCan be done".

In response to this incident, Rakuten announced the measures that Chairman Mikitani himself became the general manager of the security division and that the store could not read the credit card number / email address..
After that, as a provisional measure until February 2006, we will allow certain stores to acquire credit card information.Later, he explained that the deadline will be extended and all store credit card information will be hidden by the end of September 2006..
In connection with the above, a large amount of junk e-mail with the real name written in the address was delivered to the address used only at Rakuten Ichiba... On the other hand, the Rakuten Public Relations Office said, "We have not confirmed the fact that the address provided to the store has been diverted. We are investigating why unsolicited emails have arrived.".
Regarding this issue, President Mikitani wrote, "For the nine companies that pass credit card information, the terms and conditions state that" this store is special, so we will pass card information. "Email address of 9 yen is a system fee and is exclusive. Prohibition law (Act on Prohibition of Private Monopoly and Ensuring Fair Trade), We have not realized that we do not pass the email address. ".

As of November 11, 7, Rakuten has revealed that there are about 20 stores and 1,000 items in question. In addition, there are reports that there is a demand for strict punishment for companies who have made improper labeling, and that it was impossible to uniformly implement a large discount campaign of "77% OFF" in the first place... In addition, it was reported that "double price display" was rampant even at "Rakuten Super Sale" held before the winning sale...Rakuten initially announced that these 20 stores had displayed a "winning sale" without permission, but three of them corrected that it was a formal winning sale whose price had been checked by Rakuten...

Rakuten employees disguise discounts to dealers
In March 2014, it was reported that the Rakuten side had instructed shopkeepers to disguise the reference price... Rakuten conducted a survey of all stores, but doubts have been reported regarding the survey method.. If you open a store at Rakuten, you may receive a request to sell a product with a high discount rate from Rakuten's EC consultant at a super sale. At this time, the shopkeeper was instructed by Rakuten's EC consultant to "double the list price" and give the customer a half price with a price that does not actually exist., It was instructed that the examination of Rakuten necessary for participating in the super sale passed by creating a dummy page for high price sale etc. Was reported.As a result of a survey on the issue of unjustified double pricing, Rakuten acknowledged employee involvement from pre-2010 to 2013, but decided that it was not a systematic proposal... In April 2014, the Consumer Affairs Agency requested in writing to prevent recurrence of unjustified double price labeling, saying that it may fall under the unfair labeling under the prize labeling law.,Rakuten announced that it "takes it seriously" and "takes measures to prevent recurrence".. After that, in a survey conducted by the mail order newspaper in mid-May, it was reported that the employee made a proposal for mislabeling on a scale that exceeded the survey result by Rakuten..

Sales of new coronavirus PCR test kit
On April 2020, 4, we started selling the new coronavirus PCR test kit to corporations in the 20st and 1th prefectures of the Kanto region.

After that, a gene analysis service funded by RakutenGenesis HealthcareThe company collects and notifies the result within about 3 days (excluding weekends and holidays).
