JCB contactless specification v1.6

JCB Contactless is the Japanese JCB-branded contactless payment system that allows customers to shop by simply waving their card over the terminal.
In their course of progress, the Japan based payment scheme has recently updated their contactless specification and released an updated version, the 1.6 release.

Interac v1.8 available

The Canadian based payment scheme has released in February a new version of their contactless specification, v1.8.
The update incorporates the changes listed in the Bulletin #7 issued in May 2020 to reflect transit transaction behavior.
