Rakuten VS Amazon
Although Rakuten is still the leader in sales. Amazon has already accumulated more users and has established 22 fulfilment centers around entire Japan, compared to this Rakuten has yet established 5 centers around Japan. Agreeing to he fact that Amazon has surpassed Rakuten for being on top list of e-commerce position in Japan. There were also a few theories back in time that Rakuten was owned by Amazon, but as stated, Amazon is not affiliated with Rakuten and does not sponsor or endorse Rakuten services.
Till now Rakuten is available in few countries, (U.S) United States, Taiwan, China, France, (SA) South Korea, Germany, (U.K) United Kingdom, Canada, Hong Kong, and Australia.
