JCB has collaborated with Italian payment provider Nexi to decrease the stress of social distancing and travel restrictions caused by the pandemic.

This way, J/Secure 2.0 is JCB’s payment authentication program which will enable safe online shopping from a merchant’s website or mobile app. It will be available to JCB’s over 140 million cardmembers, while they check out virtually from their favorite Italian brand.

Introducing J/Secure(TM) 2.0 to our platform is yet another step toward furthering our commitment to evolve security measures and further pave the way to enable more innovative measures with payment partners, with an international profile, in Italy. This hi-tech JCB technology will safeguard the global online shopping experience at such a critical time - when traveling into Italy and Europe to purchase luxury items may not otherwise be an option
Dirk Pinamonti, Head of e-commerce di Nexi 

According to the report, J/Secure 2.0 is compliant with the EMV(R) 3DS Protocol and Core Functions Specification and protects cardmembers from ID deception.

It is expected to become a major gateway into Asia for Italian merchants wanting to expand their customer base.

We’ve reported that Viet Capital Bank and 7-Eleven Vietnam, a convenience store, have announced the launch of Viet Capital Bank JCB 7-Eleven Credit Card.
