Merchant acquiring services boosted by API rollout

Providers of digital payment ACI Worldwide and JCB International have confirmed the successful global rollout of JCB Web API Service, including its Web API-based dispute function. 

The launch will see the implementation of JCB’s 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.

Kenta Seya, Executive Vice President of JCB, commented: “We are committed to expanding our global business and enabling our cardmembers to pay for goods and services around the world. 

“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.”

The full rollout of this solution enables acquirers and PSPs to support their merchants and offer more ways to pay for JCB cardmembers, which 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.

Debbie Guerra, Executive Vice President of ACI Worldwide, added: “The extensive capabilities delivered by ACI Secure eCommerce, including our mSDK, have enabled JCB to streamline and simplify operations while expanding their global reach. Building on our initial success with JCB and with the completion of this full rollout, we look forward to supporting JCB’s long-term growth and global ambitions.”
