Nets to accept JCB credit cards

SINGAPORE - Nets on Monday (May 23) announced a new partnership to accept JCB credit cards in Singapore.

Nets signed a merchant acquiring partnership with JCB International Co Ltd, a subsidiary of JCB Co, which issues Japan's only international credit card brand. It has more than 93 million cardmembers.

Said Nets CEO Jeffrey Goh: "This strategic partnership aligns both Nets and JCBI's interests to deliver greater benefits to Singapore merchants.

"With our latest offering, Unified POS, which is a single terminal that accepts different types of payments, our merchants will be able to offer more payment options as they tap on a sizeable pool of JCB cardmembers and the significant number of Japanese tourists in Singapore."

Nets is Singapore's leading payment solutions provider with a merchant network of 91,000 acceptance points.
