Japanese payments brand and card issuer JCB Co. Ltd’s subsidiary JCB International has announced an alliance with ACI Worldwide in order to introduce “JCB Web API Service” using API’s eCommerce Payments Solution. JCB Web API Service provides acquirers with a web API-based interface for authorisation and clearing with 3D Secure 1.0 / 2.0. JCB Web API Service allows acquirers to connect to the JCB network in an easier and faster manner to accept transactions from more than 130 million JCB cardmembers.

“We are committed to expanding our global business and enabling our cardmembers to pay for goods and services around the world,” said Kimihisa Imada, president and COO, JCBI. “Through our partnership with ACI, we are able to offer an easy-to-integrate web API and deliver a critical requirement for potential JCB licensees. This will accelerate our expansion globally and, in particular, grow our footprint in Europe – responding to the desire of our cardmembers to make convenient and secure payments abroad just as they do at home.”

According to the supplier, the solution will enable the acceleration of JCB acceptance expansion as well as flexibility for rolling out new payment services for online and mobile payments.

“JCB’s growth opportunity in Europe is considerable, with a growing customer base that represents significant spending power and seeks to pay with their preferred and trusted brand as they travel around the world,” said Dan Frate, group president, ACI On-Demand, ACI Worldwide. “The extensive capabilities delivered by ACI’s Universal Payments solutions make us uniquely qualified to support JCB’s diverse needs, long-term growth and global ambitions.”
