JCB is bringing its customers Apple Pay when it launches in October, an easy, fast and secure way to make mobile payments that is private and convenient with iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus , Apple Watch Series 2 throughout their day, including in stores, within apps and on the web.
Since its establishment in 1961, JCB has been a pioneer in the Japanese payment industry, providing attractive products and services to meet the emerging needs and expectations of Japanese consumers.
As part of this initiative, JCB introduced the contactless payment solution QUICPay in 2005, playing a leading role for mobile payments in Japan.
The QUICPay acceptance network can now be used for Apple Pay transactions, enabling everyday use at places such as convenience stores, supermarkets and drug stores. By supporting Apple Pay, we will be bringing a convenient and secure customer experience to an even broader range of consumers.
The newly released JCB Token Platform (JTP) will play an important role in the technology for secure mobile payments by replacing the original card number with a unique device specific number for Apple Pay users.
Apple Pay is easy to set up and you will continue to receive rewards and benefits offered by your credit cards.
Customers can also use JCB Card to pay for Suica on Apple Pay including recharging Suica balance.
In stores, you can pay with Apple Pay with iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus and Apple Watch Series 2 anywhere QUICPay is accepted. Just tell the cashier you would like to pay with QUICPay, then simply place your iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus near the contactless reader, and with the touch of a finger on Touch ID, the payment is complete. When paying with your Apple Watch Series 2 , double-click the side button before holding it near the reader.
For JCB cardholders, online shopping in apps and on websites accepting Apple Pay is as simple as the touch of a finger on Touch ID, so there’s no need to manually fill out lengthy account forms or repeatedly type in shipping and billing information.
When paying for goods and services on the go in apps or Safari, Apple Pay works with iPhone 6 and later, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, and iPad mini 3 and later. You can also use Apple Pay in Safari on any Mac introduced in or after 2012 running macOS Sierra, and confirm the payment with iPhone 6 or later or Apple Watch.
Security and privacy is at the core of Apple Pay. If your iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch is ever lost, you can use Find My iPhone to put your device in Lost Mode to suspend Apple Pay, or you can wipe your device clean completely. You can also stop the ability to make payments with Apple Pay on iCloud.com.
When you use a credit card with Apple Pay, the actual card numbers are not stored on the device, nor on Apple servers. Instead, a unique Device Account Number is assigned, encrypted and securely stored in the Secure Element on your device. When you use Apple Pay, your credit card number will not be shared with the merchant.
