IDEMIA and JCB Partner to Launch Google Pay in Japan


COLOMBES, France

IDEMIA, the global leader in Augmented Identity, announces its partnership with JCB, the only international payment brand based in Japan, to launch Google Pay in Japan.

 

Users will be able to make contactless mobile payments in store using their JCB branded credit, debit, and prepaid cards enrolled in their Google Pay, at places such as convenience stores, supermarkets, drug stores and other shops where QUICPay is accepted.

 

To enable Google Pay for JCB cardholders, JCB leverages an agnostic and scalable payment card tokenization and digitization infrastructure, the JCB Tokenization Platform (JTP). It relies on IDEMIA’s field-proven digital payment solution. It allows not only JCB, but also its issuing and processing partners to integrate with Google Pay and offer real-time enrolment, provisioning and tokenization capabilities. Users in Japan can, therefore, add their JCB cards in the Google Pay app on their Osaifu Keitai-compatible phones equipped with Android 5.0 or higher version.

 

We are delighted to be able to provide our customers with the ability to use Google Pay by leveraging QUICPay’s wide acceptance network in Japan.” said Masaki Yokawa, Executive Vice-President for Brand Business at JCB. “We believe the service will enhance the convenience and experience for JCB card members with the simple and intuitive user interface. JTP plays an integral part for making this happen, and we are proud to have worked with IDEMIA, who has a proven track record in this area, in order to add the Google Pay capability to the platform.”

 

Nobuyoshi NEZU, Representative director at IDEMIA Japan declared: "We are proud to have worked together with JCB in the deployment of Google Pay in Japan. This represents another milestone in our long-term partnership. IDEMIA is the mobile payment enablement partner of choice for JCB, by offering IDEMIA’s field-proven Digital Enablement Platform. IDEMIA’s technology and services are deployed at scale with tens of millions of cards digitized so far across the world.”
