Verifone has been approved by JCB to support J/Speedy v1.3 “making Verifone’s merchant clients the first to be able to accept this latest version of the contactless EMV payment program used by JCB cardholders.
J/Speedy provides a simple, fast, and convenient way for consumers to pay, particularly in environments where throughput speed is critical, such as supermarkets, convenience stores, and fast food restaurants. The program enables consumers to pay by simply tapping their card or mobile phone on a certified terminal or J/Speedy reader.
Verifone is making its newly certified payment application software globally available, and merchants in China, Taiwan, Thailand and other markets in the Asia Pacific region will be the first to have the ability to update their Verifone terminals to accept J/Speedy contactless payments from consumers. Interested merchants can contact their acquirers or terminal providers to learn more about how they can receive Verifone’s J/Speedy software update.
