Payments platform Stripe announced it is expanding its support for JCB payments. According to Stripe, JCB is a credit card network with more than 135 million cardholders worldwide and a share-of-wallet in Japan.
Stripe also revealed that businesses using Stripe in Japan may now automatically accept payments with JCB, in most cases without any additional work.
“We are rolling out JCB acceptance to businesses in more countries, starting with Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, with more to come. This lets global businesses, from e-commerce sites in Canada to subscription services in Australia, easily transact with JCB cardholders.”
Stripe noted that it is currently live in nearly 40 countries and it wants every payment method, and feature of the platform, to be available everywhere it does business.
