TOKYO -- The operator of Uniqlo casualwear stores will add a payment function to its smartphone app, making customer purchase histories easier to track in order to increase efficiency in planning, production and sales.

Previously, electronic payments made in stores were handled by third-party services. Fast Retailing will now process these payments at Uniqlo stores on its own.
