“BASE” exceeds 1.6 million stores and other information on initiatives for “BASE” stores
Since its launch in November 2012, “BASE” has been used by a large number of individuals and small
teams as a service that makes it easy for anyone to set up an online store, and has now surpassed the 1.6 million store mark in terms of the total number of online stores opened.
Going forward, “BASE” will continue to be a service that anyone can easily use and operate an online store, whether you are a store owner using the service since its inception, a store owner who has launched an online store. online store during the corona pandemic, t, or a merchant who is currently considering opening an online store. We will continue to develop features to further reduce the workload of managing online stores so that store owners can focus on developing and producing their products on a day-to-day basis.
Recently, due to the effects of the nationwide spread of the novel coronavirus infection, a number of emergency declarations and priority actions have been taken to prevent the spread of the disease in various parts of Japan. These include requests to refrain from leaving the house unnecessarily and some businesses to refrain from operating. The demand for opening “BASE” online stores, which exploded immediately after the declaration of a state of emergency in April 2020, is gradually taking root as a new way of doing business alongside physical stores, rather than as a temporary means of supplementing the sales of physical stores that were unable to function due to the pandemic. In that sense, it has become a new way of doing business.
For those merchants who choose “BASE” as a new way to do business, we will continue to strengthen information dissemination, including the introduction of extension functions through our own “BASE U” media and social networking services, so that stores can select and install the functions that best suit their own online store operations, from over 80 functions provided through the “BASE Apps” extension function, and thus effectively support their activities.
- New BASE functions under development
Here are some of the features that are currently in development and will be released soon. In addition to facilitating the management of an online store, BASE is developing functions from an operational point of view, such as a customer management function that facilitates communication with customers.

- Application of staff authorizations
1. Update of customer management function
Announcements on limited events and products can be sent to specific customer groups such as repeat or new customers, making it possible to communicate with customers based on their purchase history.

In addition to the above functions, we are also developing new functions to assist store owners, and will provide further details as they become available.
