TOKYO, May 24, 2018 - (ACN Newswire) - JCB Co., Ltd, the only international payments brand based in Japan, today announced that it will offer the ability for shoppers in Japan to use Google Pay for in-store payments, later in the year.


JCB will enable Google Pay for instore payments in Japan through its QUICPay(TM), contactless payment solution. At launch, Google Pay users will be able to make payments on their enrolled JCB credit, debit, or prepaid card at convenience stores, supermarkets, drugstores, and other shops where QUICPay is accepted and online wherever JCB is accepted.

JCB is committed to offering convenient and secure payment services to an even wider range of customers in Japan.
