JCB International Credit Card Co, the Americas subsidiary of Japan-based international payment brand JCB , announced its J/Smart application identifier has been certified for EMV chip card acceptance in the US by Global Payments.
“We are extremely pleased to achieve our first US EMV acceptance certification,” said Dan Skaling,
executive vice president for JCBUSA. “JCB has been a leader in EMV card acceptance in markets around the world for the past 10 years,” added Skaling. “Being able to give our cardholders this same safety and security when making purchases in the United States is a top priority,” continued Skaling.
Combining J/Smart with other card brand application identifiers has minimal processor resource impact during certification, while providing a substantially broader EMV card acceptance footprint for U.S. merchants.
