LINE App Official Account

LINE Official Account lets companies from large corporations to individual stores create their own dedicated LINE accounts. There are currently more than 3+ million Official Accounts in Japan covering a wide range of industries. LINE Official Accounts is a service which allows businesses to contact users while blending in to their daily lives just like using LINE to communicate with friends and family. Businesses and stores can use messaging and other features to communicate and build mid-to-long-term relationships with users who friend their LINE Official Account.
