JCB, Japan's only international payment brand, and Worldline have announced the expansion of their partnership.

According to the press release, this established relationship has pivoted to support both the exchange of global ecommerce and the growth of JCB Contactless enablement across Europe. Previously, the two brands coordinated to support digital shopping outside of Europe and worked to enable JCB Contactless in regions such as Switzerland, Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg, Slovenia, Belgium, and Poland. 

Furthermore, their collaboration will make room for more of Worldline's merchants to accept face-to-face contactless payments in other European markets from Q2 2021, especially in Nordic regions. Additionally, Worldline merchants around the globe can now welcome online JCB cardmember transactions. JCB's security payment authentication programmes – J/Secure(TM) 1.0 and J/Secure(TM) 2.0 – will be implemented for online commerce.

Overall, the partnership offers merchants 24/7 authorisation of ecommerce, manual and contactless transactions, centralised billing for debit and credit cards, and a quick, safeguarded billing process. The JCB Contactless payment solution is compliant with NFC and EMV(R) Contactless Communication Protocols.
