By Megha Bhattacharya
Japan-based JCB Co. Ltd.’s international operations subsidiary – JCB International Co. Ltd has announced the expansion of its partnership with Worldline. The collaboration is expected to strengthen the growth of JCB’s contactless enablement across Europe.
The partnership will enable Worldline merchants to accept face-to-face contactless payments in other European markets from Q2 2021 and also welcome online JCB cardmember transactions. , Merchants will also gain the advantage of 24/7 authorisation of e-commerce, manual and contactless transactions, centralised billing for debit and credit cards and a safeguarded billing process.
Roger Niederer, Chief Market Officer Merchant Services of Worldline commented, “Worldline’s ambition is to be the partner of choice for merchants. We stand by our customers’ side and support their business growth with consumer-friendly and efficient services for their specific needs. Contactless payments and e-commerce are a manifest consumer trend, and I am happy that Worldline is now expanding its global partnership with JCB to apply our advanced payments technology in both face-to-face and ecommerce transactions.”
Recently, ACI Worldwide, a global provider of real-time digital payment software and solutions, and JCB International announced that JCB has completed the successful global rollout of its JCB Web API Service, including its Web API-based dispute function. JCB’s full implementation of ACI Secure eCommerce, which serves as the foundation for the service, helps acquirers, merchants and payments service providers (PSPs) drive payments acceptance in key regions across Asia and globally.
Mr. Tsuyoshi Notani, Managing Director, JCB International (Europe) Ltd., said, “We are delighted that our positive relationship with Worldline has afforded us the opportunity to expand in not only one but two areas where our cardmembers are showing a spend preference – in contactless payment for face-to-face sales and through secure, easy-to-use ecommerce platforms. This is an exciting step for our 140+ million cardmembers and Worldline’s extensive merchant community. It is our sincere hope that this collaboration will support recovery and growth across every region, especially in light of the challenges the pandemic presented.”
