Discover issues Credit Cards directly to card holders as well as through banks and other financial institutions. Any card bearing the Discover Logo can be accepted as a form of payment at any business that has a merchant account.
JCB Cards are issued in Japan and are used extensively by tourists and business travelers in the US. JCB stands for Japan Credit Bureau. JCB entered into an agreement with Discover allowing all US merchants that can accept Discover Cards to also be able to accept JCB Cards without the need to open a separate account with JCB. We activate JCB Cards on all of our merchant accounts.
Diners Club Cards were one of the first cards ever used in the US back in 1950. Diners Club is now part of Discover but still carries its own brand name. Diners Club Cards can be used at all merchant locations that can accept Discover Cards. We activate Diners Club Cards on all of our merchant accounts.
