|Naples, FLA / Amsterdam, June 3, 2019 - (ACN
Newswire) - JCB International, Co., Ltd, the international
operations subsidiary of JCB Co., Ltd., and ACI Worldwide (NASDAQ:
ACIW), a leading global provider of real-time electronic payment
and banking solutions, today announced an alliance to introduce
"JCB Web API Service" using ACI's UP eCommerce Payments
JCB Web API Service provides acquirers with a web API-based
interface for authorization 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.
ACI's UP eCommerce Payments provides connectivity to an extensive
global payment network of hundreds of card acquirers and
alternative payment methods. Utilizing the solution as a processing
interface between JCB and acquirers will not only accelerate JCB
acceptance expansion globally, but also provide flexibility to roll
out new payment services for online and mobile payments.
Acquirers that are integrated with ACI's UP eCommerce Payments
solution are now able to add JCB as a payment option more easily -
through implementation of a few lines of code. In turn, merchants
will be able to offer more ways to pay for high net worth
cardmembers who prefer to pay - in both card-present and
card-not-present environments - with the payment brand that they
know and trust.
"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
"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."
