Japanese phonetics and divisions

For Japanese addresses, customers can provide their division within their organization (for example, sales department). Additionally, customers can enter their name in two scripting styles: Hiragana and Katakana. Hiragana is the traditional script, while Katakana is the phonetic spelling. Customer and courier services often want phonetic spelling so they can correctly pronounce the customer's name when making a delivery. Katakana is also used by foreigners living in the country who don't have a Japanese name.
Digital River provides the ability to enter a phonetic name for a Japanese customer and a division in the billingAddress and shippingAddress objects.
Phonetic names stored in the required billing address will appear on the Order Summary page.

Add phonetics and divisions

To add phonetics to your billing and shipping addresses, add the following attributes:
"phoneticFirstName": "タロ", "phoneticLastName": "ヤマダ", "division": "営業部"
To the following resources:
After you implement phonetic names, you will see the new fields under the billing or shipping address in the response. For example:
