JCB international , Japan, Paymentwall, digital, card, online,JCB International Co., Ltd., the international operations subsidiary of JCB Co., Ltd. and Nets Group, the Nordic-based payment service provider, have announced the latest expansion of their partnership to bolster JCB Contactless acceptance in the Nordic region. JCB cardmembers can now use JCB Contactless on 244,000 merchant POS systems across Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Finland.

Robert Hoffmann, CEO of Concardis and Nets Merchant Services says: “We are happy to support contactless acceptance of JCB across the Nordics benefitting JCB cardmembers once they again can travel abroad. Contactless payments are already well-established at the point-of-sale in the Nordics. As a leading provider of digital payment services in Europe, it is paramount for us that we support the most preferred means of payment in the most seamless and convenient way as we know this helps to drive conversion and business for our merchant customers”.

JCB cardmembers can simply tap their card or other JCB Contactless-embedded devices close to the merchant terminal reader for quicker payment without inserting the card. International NFC payment protocols make it possible to enable JCB Contactless acceptance around the world, while EMV technology ensures highly secure payment transactions. By enabling this function across more merchants in the Nordics, JCB cardmembers will have increased access to secure and fast payment options when travelling in future.

Yoshiki Kaneko, President and Chief Operating Officer, JCB International Co., Ltd. expresses, “We grant a wide customer base to our partners, with more than 141 million cardmembers worldwide. Our cardmembers are looking forward to spending and travelling again in the future, and we are confident their spend will help contribute to recovery of the Nordic region – and help our valued partners and their merchants. By providing comprehensive JCB Contactless acceptance to our cardmembers in the Nordics, we have now made card payments even more simple, secure, and fast. This latest enablement of Nets merchants in Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Finland greatly contributes to the overall significant expansion of JCB Contactless acceptance in Europe.”
