JCB International and Paymentwall have announced the activation of JCB cards in the digital media and home entertainment sector.

This partnership is expected to simplify the online transactional journey for digital media and home entertainment communities. That’s due to the fact they make in-app and online purchases from small and medium-sized companies across the world.

Globally, throughout 2020 to date, the video game industry sector has seen a 7.4% increase in sales year-on-year and a user increase of 12.7% year-on-year. It is forecasted that the market will reach an expected annual sales growth of a further 0.9% as we move towards 2025.

In addition, this partnership will offer cardmembers enhanced fraud protection, speedier transactions, local payment processing and 24/7 in-app help and support functions.

Establishing a relationship with JCB has been a key milestone for us as we expand into new regions where we can offer our customers and end-users more advanced payment options. JCB has almost 60 years of insight and understanding when it comes to its cardmembers across countries in Southeast Asia, Japan, China, and Korea

We’ve reported that JCB has teamed up with Fujitsu and Mizuho Bank for a joint demonstration trial aimed at further advancing a digital society. The trial aims to prove that digital ID data can be safely transacted online, distributed, and linked between different industries.
