SINGAPORE & TOKYO, Jan 12, 2021 - (ACN Newswire) - ACI Worldwide (NASDAQ: ACIW), a leading global provider of real-time digital payment software and solutions and JCB International Co., Ltd. (JCB), the international operations subsidiary of JCB Co., Ltd., Japan's only international payment brand, today announced that JCB has completed the successful global rollout of its JCB Web API Service, including its Web API-based dispute function. JCB's full implementation of ACI Secure eCommerce, which serves as the foundation for the service, helps acquirers, merchants and payments service providers (PSPs) drive payments acceptance in key regions across Asia and globally.

JCB is accepted at about 35 million merchant locations globally, utilizes ACI Secure eCommerce as its JCB Web API Service - a processing interface to accelerate JCB Card acceptance in important and growing markets, especially in Asia. Acquirers benefit from an API-based interface for both authorization and clearing.

The result is a more streamlined and efficient dispute handling operation for acquirers.

The full rollout of this solution enables acquirers and PSPs to support their merchants and offer more ways to pay for JCB cardmembers, who prefer to pay with their trusted brand. The ACI Secure eCommerce solution's API significantly simplifies the integration effort and cost for acquirers and PSPs while shortening their time-to-market to offer JCB payment acceptance.

"We are committed to expanding our global business and enabling our cardmembers to pay for goods and services around the world," said Kenta Seya, Executive Vice President of JCB. "ACI Secure eCommerce, which underpins JCB Web API Service, is globally proven with merchants and PSPs across geographies, industries and verticals. JCB's service, which supports both payments and dispute processing with its Web API, will help accelerate our expansion across Asia and around the world."
