In a few months, JCB will implement Google Pay for Japanese shoppers.
In-store payments will be enable on QUICPay, the company’s contactless payment solution.
At launch, Google Pay users will be able to make payments with their JCB credit, debit, or prepaid card at businesses accepting QUICPay and online wherever JCB is accepted. Credit, debit, and prepaid cards can be added to the Google Pay app on Osaifu Keitai supported devices with Android OS5.0 or higher version.
Card registered to Google accounts can also be used for in-app payments and online shopping wherever Google Pay is supported. In order to pay, there is no need for the user to enter contact information, credit card number, or other information every time they make a purchase.
