JCB and Stripe: initial tie-up in Japan in 2017

The two firms’ initial partnership was established for the Japanese market in July 2017. Since then, JCB and Stripe have worked together to strengthen the collaboration into other regions, from the US and Canada, to Australia and New Zealand. In this latest extension, Stripe has also added JCB to its default payment scheme for merchants in the UK and Ireland in August 2023. And for merchants in other European countries, Singapore and Hong Kong in October 2023.

Yoshiki Kaneko, President & CEO JCB International Co., Ltd., said: “We’re excited to announce our expanded relationship with Stripe, one of the fastest growing and key acquiring partners in the world. Stripe’s global presence and innovative technological solutions make them an ideal choice for e-commerce merchants who value secure and fast transactions. Through this partnership, we believe we can offer an additional and valuable payment options to our cardmembers.”
