JCB, Nets Group to grow JCB Contactless acceptance in the Nordics

Monday 28 June 2021 11:30 CET | News

Japan-based payments group JCB and Nets Group, the Denmark-based payment service provider, have expanded 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. This partnership with Nets marks an increase in JCB acceptance in the region, built upon the previous rollout to 18,000 Nets merchants in Finland in January 2020 and introduction of mobile payments in Denmark in 2016.

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(R) 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.
