JCB, Viva Wallet expand European collaboration

Tuesday 25 August 2020 10:51 CET | News

JCB and Viva Wallet have announced an extended European roll-out, which will enable contact and contactless payment between Viva Wallet's European merchants and JCB's 140 million cardmembers.

This will be enabled through both face-to-face and online commerce transactions. The roll-out will be extended with an additional 6 European nations, over and above the 17 countries which have already been enabled, from September 2020. Thus, Viva Wallet will bring JCB acceptance to merchants spanning a total of 23 countries across Europe from late 2020.

In addition, the collaboration will support around 80,000 merchants in Greece, more than 3,000 merchants in Belgium, and more than 6,000 merchants in the UK and other countries across multiple industries including retail, food, and transportation. The partnership will allow online JCB acceptance with J/Secure 1.0, which is designed to be an additional security layer for cardmembers' online credit and debit card transactions and provides cardmembers with a safe purchase experience.
