CIMB Niaga and JCB launch JCB Contactless Credit Card in Indonesia

JAKARTA & TOKYO, Sept 3, 2021 - (JCN Newswire) - PT Bank CIMB Niaga Tbk (CIMB Niaga) and PT JCB International Indonesia (JCB), as subsidiaries of JCB International Co Ltd., launched the CIMB Niaga JCB Contactless Credit Card in Jakarta, Friday, 3 September 2021. This credit card with contactless technology was developed in line with the rapid growth of credit card technology and the COVID-19 pandemic situation. The Contactless Credit Card can make it easier for customers to transact as well as become an alternative faster payment solution. Supported by dual liaison capabilities, this credit card can still be used for transactions using the dipping method.

CIMB Niaga Consumer Banking Director, Lani Darmawan, said, "CIMB Niaga continues to develop innovative products and services by adopting the latest technology. One of them is through the CIMB Niaga JCB Contactless Credit Card. With this card, customers can transact at various merchants without touching other objects. We hope that this initiative can improve customer experience in the midst of the current situation."

Meanwhile, President Director of PT JCB International Indonesia, Takumi Takahashi, said, "We are delighted that CIMB Niaga is the first bank in Indonesia to implement JCB Contactless through the launch of the CIMB Niaga JCB Contactless Credit Card. This contactless payment is safe and convenient for customers. We believe this new product will contribute to accelerating digitization in the payment industry in Indonesia."

The issuance of the CIMB Niaga JCB Contactless Credit Card is an initiative of CIMB Niaga and JCB to provide an easier, faster and simpler transaction experience. With the contactless method, according to Bank Indonesia regulations, customers do not need to enter a PIN for nominal transactions under Rp. 1 million, while transactions above Rp. 1 million require a PIN. As for the transaction process, customers just need to tap-and-go. This is faster than inserting a card into an Electronic Data Capture (EDC) machine or paying with cash.

In addition, Contactless Credit cards also have the same level of security as dipping cards. Every contactless transaction on the card reader or EDC machine will be processed by the Bank and JCB card processing network through an authorization that is as secure as transactions through the dipping method.

CIMB Niaga JCB Contactless Credit Card customers can use the JCB Contactless feature at more than 100 thousand merchants in Indonesia. In addition, over the past three years, the number of JCB Contactless partners globally has also continued to grow.
