Ceylon’s Commercial Bank has become one of the first banks in Sri Lanka to accept co-branded LankaPay JCB (Japan Credit Bureau) cards issued under the domestic card system.
This follows the integration of Commercial Bank and the LankaPay Common POS Switch System enabling the Bank to acquire JCB cards, the only international payment brand originating from Japan. The POS machine network of Commercial Bank will gradually be upgraded to accept both LankaPay-JCB co-branded cards issued by local banks and JCB cards issued internationally, the Bank said.
Consequently, holders of LankaPay-JCB co-branded cards and JCB cardholders will be able to perform both contact and contactless transactions using Commercial Bank’s POS devices in Sri Lanka. JCB is the only international payment brand based in Japan and has been committed to expanding its international presence since 1981.
