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. Credit, debit, and prepaid cards can be enrolled using the Google Pay app on Osaifu Keitai supported devices with Android OS5.0 or higher version.
Card information enrolled for users' Google accounts can also be used for in-app payments and online shopping wherever Google Pay is supported. Payments are easy, with no need to enter contact information, credit card number, or other information every time you make a purchase.
