SumUp Enables JCB Card Acceptance for Its European Merchantsby Fintechnews Switzerland May 25, 2023
SumUp, a London-based global payments service provider, has tied up with Japan-based card scheme JCB International to enable the acceptance of JCB Cards across its European merchant network.
The enablement of JCB Card will allow SumUp’s merchants in Europe, which are part of its over 4 million merchant network in the world, to become members of JCB’s growing merchant community.
SumUp’s merchant network comprises businesses of all sizes, from nano entrepreneurs to SMEs, such as grocery stores, taxi companies and small-sized shops.
With the availability of JCB Contactless, JCB card members may simply tap their card on SumUp’s readers for payment convenience.
Ray Shinzawa, Managing Director, JCB International (Europe) said,
“We’re excited to introduce SumUp as our new partner and work closely with its merchant network starting with European countries and regions to further increase JCB Contactless acceptance.
SumUp’s global presence and innovative technology make it the ideal choice for our cardmembers, who value secure and fast transactions when shopping abroad.”
Michael Schrezenmaier, CEO Europe, SumUp said,
“We are committed to empowering small businesses and helping them tap into the expanding number of Asian travellers. Our new partnership with JCB will enable them to offer a preferred payment option to these travellers.
This is an exciting time, especially for small and medium-sized businesses looking for new avenues of growth, and with the deployment of JCB Card acceptance, we can better provide them with the tools they need to differentiate themselves from their competition and thrive in today’s global marketplace.”
