It's worth taking a few things into account:

1. The target audience of creditcards.com is approx. 360 million + people
- 300 million usa
- 60 million uk

This is nearly 3 times the population of Japan (130 million).


2. The USA is a debt driven society. Being in debt up to your ears is "the american way". Credit companies try to pump and dump credit to foreign investors. Is it the same way in Japan?


3. American companies are in fierce competition with one another, sometimes even taking massive losses just to gain customers. Is it the same way in Japan?


4. American companies don't mind affiliating with e.g. foreign domain owners. Is it the same way in Japan?


These are some of the questions you need to think hard about before coming up with your final business strategy.

Ross,

Basically you are talking about that most IDN value won't surpass it's ACII equivalent. Agree with you on this.

You are welcome to propose a business partnership model for me to consider. I have accumulated lots of Japanese credit market revenue data. It is the second largest one in the world.

BTW, the UK component of creditcards.com is only recently added so the above stats does not include the UK part.

No, that wasn't my point at all. I was talking about credit cards in particular, that due to the questions I asked, would it ever receive as high average revenue per visitor as the one which is intended to serve the american audience. This goes deep into trying to understand japanese business practices.

If you want to make a partnership proposal you can then start negotiate with me and ask various questions about it. Otherwise I appreciate your quietness on a subject you don't have much knowledge about. Not sure if I have made it clear to you.
