Since its establishment in 1961, JCB has led the payment industry in Japan by offering the latest creative products and services. Our business widens each year to provide our customers with the safest and easiest payment system possible. This commitment is our top priority in every aspect of our unique and diverse business model as Japan’s leading credit card issuer, acquirer, processor, payment solutions provider, and also as an international brand.
With the aim of further expanding the acceptance of JCB card, JCB decided to go international on its own in 1981, and the pioneering and challenging spirit has expanded JCB card acceptance and JCB cardmember base globally. JCB has been developing relationships with hundreds of the world’s most distinguished financial institutions. JCB still holds the position of the first international payment brand originated in Asia, and is recognized as one of the few brands accepted around the world. Our success can be directly attributed to our commitment to developing the highest quality services and products.
