iZettle First mPOS in Europe to offer JCB Card Acceptance
July 9, 2013
Stockholm - July 9, 2013: iZettle, the social payments company, announces today that its Chip & PIN and Chip & Signature readers now accept JCB cards. iZettle is the first mobile payments provider in Europe that offer JCB card acceptance throughout the United Kingdom, Germany, Sweden, Norway and Finland.
The transaction fee with JCB cards will be 2.75 %, the same as for all other supported cards, including American Express, Visa, MasterCard, V Pay, Electron, Diners Club and Maestro.
“We’re proud to add JCB to our accepted cards for our card readers,” said Jacob de Geer, iZettle CEO and co-founder. “Millions of Asian tourists visit Europe every year especially in the summer. Now tourists don’t have to worry about carrying cash and iZettle customers don’t have to turn business away.”
iZettle takes just minutes to set up, and works with all major payment cards. iZettle is a fully integrated solution for merchants, consisting of an app, a chip-card reader and a free business management software tool that lets anyone take card payments and manage their business.
For tracking and analyzing sales, iZettle recently updated its free sales overview tools with easy-to-read graphs that can be sorted by year, month or week. The software’s new metric boxes display revenue, top selling products, transactions, average payment volume and returning customers, to identify a business’ most loyal customers.
Sweden’s Financial Supervisory Authority regulates iZettle, whose services are EMV (Europay, MasterCard and Visa) approved and compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).
iZettle’s app to accept credit card payments is available for download free of charge from Apple’s App Store or Google Play in the U.K., Spain, Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Mexico, and coming soon to more countries. iZettle’s Chip & PIN and Chip & Signature readers can be purchased at www.izettle.com.
