JCB now accepted by Moorwand e-commerce and POS merchants
LONDON, Jun, 06 2019 - (ACN Newswire) - JCB International, Co., Ltd. (JCBI), the international operations subsidiary of JCB Co. Ltd., and Moorwand Limited, the international payments company offering issuing and acquiring solutions, have signed a joint licencing agreement to enable JCB acceptance for Moorwand e-commerce clients in the SEPA region.
System integration for the first phase will begin during Q4 of 2019, with go-live expected during Q1 2020. The final phase of the project will allow for JCB acceptance by face to face POS merchants using the Moorwand platform. Moorwand offers end-to-end payment solutions to merchants and customers in the EEA and is on a mission to develop transparent engagements with industry players to address the complexities around bank identification number (BIN) access and associated payment services.
This partnership supports JCB Europe's strategy to engage with European payment service providers (PSPs), expanding its acceptance footprint and opening up opportunities for European merchants with its 130 million cardmembers.
Mr. Tsuyoshi Notani, Managing Director, JCB International (Europe) Ltd., said, "This partnership with Moorwand, a disrupter of the PSP community, serves to not only benefit JCB's ambition to grow merchant acceptance in Europe, but also further JCB acceptance in the growing Asian e-commerce market. With Japan as the fourth largest B2C global market for e-commerce, the acceptance of JCB cards by Moorwand e-commerce clients supports our goal to provide a unique and seamless shopping experience to our cardmembers, who require access to electronic payment systems when travelling the globe."
Robert Courtneidge, CEO, Moorwand said, "Moorwand's goal is cut the red tape around the increasingly complex world of payments legislation and bring programmes to market quickly and efficiently, whilst understanding the need to be flexible and innovate. Partnering with JCB ensures we're providing these opportunities to not only a growing Asian market, but also at home in Europe."
