Japanese credit card issuer and payments provider, JCB International, and global finance infrastructure provider, Stripe, have expanded their partnership to include Singapore and Hong Kong-based merchants.

The deal sees JCB cardholders able to access e-merchants using Stripe’s payment infrastructure network across three Asian regions.

“We’re excited to announce our expanded relationship with Stripe, one of the fastest growing and key acquiring partners in the world,” Yoshiki Kaneko, President & CEO of JCB International Co., Ltd., said.

“Stripe’s global presence and innovative technological solutions make them an ideal choice for e-commerce merchants who value secure and fast transactions. Through this partnership, we believe we can offer an additional and valuable payment option to our cardmembers.”

As part of the expansion, Stripe also added JCB to its default payment scheme for merchants in Singapore and Hong Kong in October.

“With today’s updates, JCB and Stripe are making it easier than ever for global businesses to sell to customers in Japan and across Asia,” Jeanne DeWitt Grosser, Global Head of Partnerships at Stripe, said.

“We’re excited that our longstanding partnership with JCB continues to deliver new, tangible benefits to internet businesses and JCB cardmembers alike.”
