Nets Group launches JCB's J/Speedy NFC mobile technology first in Europe

Copenhagen and Tokyo, Nov 21, 2017 - (JCN Newswire) - The Nets Group and JCB International Co. Ltd. (JCBI), the international operations subsidiary of JCB Co. Ltd, have launched JCB's EMV(R) contactless standard in Denmark for the first time. The solution combines Host Card Emulation (HCE) technology with JCB's latest J/Speedy(TM)* contactless specification enabling Danish cardholders to tap and pay on their Android Phones at supermarkets and retailers across Denmark. Through this partnership, Nets merchants equipped with J/Speedy contactless terminals, will be able to accept payments from JCB cardmembers using their J/Speedy cards and smartphones in Europe.

This is the latest development in last year's strategic partnership announcement between Nets Group and JCB, targeting the expansion of JCB's EMV J/Speedy contactless standard in Europe. JCB's strategy is that all merchants across Europe will be able to accept JCB's J/Speedy contactless payments in the future.

Nets will now be able to support an increasing number of JCB's cardmembers visiting Europe with JCB's J/Speedy contactless functionality on their cards and smartphones.

Thomas Jul, Group Executive Vice President, Nets Group, "We are delighted to be the first in Europe using JCB's advanced EMV contactless technology which will ensure a frictionless and enjoyable payments experience between Nets merchants and consumers initially in Denmark. In addition, we are pleased to expand J/Speedy acceptance across all of Nets core markets to support JCB's growing number of J/Speedy contactless transactions from JCB's cardmembers visiting Europe."

Mr. Kimihisa Imada, President and COO, JCB International Co., Ltd. said, "We are delighted to announce the first launch of J/Speedy mobile contactless technology with Nets in Europe.
