JCB has teamed up with the White Label Alliance (WLA) to provide JCB Contactless Kernel Specifications to WLA members wishing to migrate to the contactless solution.

WLA was founded by IDEMIA, G+D, and NXP(R) Semiconductors in response to the growing global demand for the next-generation independent payment solution for domestic and private-label payment schemes.

By providing WLA members with an open payment standard covering contact and contactless payment cards, mobile, and payment terminal devices, WLA facilitates their migration to new technology.

JCB Contactless, JCB brand’s contactless payment solution, is fully compliant with EMV(R) standards and supported by most acceptance devices including those of major global terminal suppliers.

As momentum toward contactless payments is gathering on a global scale, it is becoming critical that the interoperable contactless capability is more accessible so that a wider audience can benefit from the enhanced convenience and security. By offering our technology to WLA, we are delighted to work with banks, local networks, and vendors to enable contactless implementation with less efforts and shorter time-to-market
