7 November 2017

Almazergienbank has announced that it is the first bank in Russia’s far East, and amongst the first in the country, to support the issuing and acquiring of JCB cards using Compass Plus products. Compass Plus also provided consultation services and assisted extensively in the testing phase of the project.

In partnering with JCB, Almazergienbank customers will experience a variety of benefits which include the acceptance of JCB cards across retailers in almost 200 countries around the world, the ability to receive cashback, and discounts from JCB’s partner network, such as hotels, airlines, restaurants and more.

"We see great prospects in developing our partnership with JCB, and we are pleased that Compass Plus has supported us once again and helped implement such a significant project," said Lyudmila Nikolaeva, Chairman of the Board at Almazergienbank.

The bank also plans to launch Mir-JCB cards, which will be accepted as Mir in Russia and JCB when used elsewhere. This will also be implemented with support from Compass Plus.
