merci box

Merci box is the name Mercari gives to its unique benefit system that allows employees to Go Bold and give 100%, both inside and outside of the office.

Support for you and your family

  • Maternity/paternity and caregiving support

    We provide financial support to employees returning from maternity/paternity leave or providing care to a family member.
    This system enables you to fully focus on your family and then welcomes you back to work when you’re ready.

  • Paid caregiving leave

    In the event that you need to take leave to care for an injured or ill member of your immediate family, we provide up to 10 days of caregiving leave (5 paid) per year.

  • Fertility

    We know that fertility treatments can be a huge financial burden for couples, which is why we provide up to 10 years of monetary support for the various treatments available, regardless of income or age.
    For treatments covered by insurance: employee pays nothing.
    For treatments not covered by insurance, employee pays only 30% of the costs (70% covered by government and Mercari)

  • Childcare

    When your child is sick, Mercari covers the cost of special nursing facilities or hiring a babysitter. We provide ¥1,500 per hour, with no time limit, so that you don’t have to worry about your child’s well-being.

  • Private Preschools

    If your child is unable to get into a government-licensed preschool, we will pay the difference when enrolling them into a private one. We want to ensure that your children are taken care of, and that you can return to work whenever you’re ready.

Support in times of need

  • Injury/illness

    We take care of the financial burden, so that you can focus all of your energy on recovering.

    We provide you with 3 days of paid leave to attend the birth of your child, as well as a gift of ¥100,000.

  • Support for your personal life

    We also want to enrich the lives of our single employees as well. We cover the full cost of a paid membership to Pairs, the matchmaking service from eureka, Inc.
