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.

Tip: Check your spam

Sometimes our e-mails end up in spam. Make sure to check your spam folder for e-mails from The Payments Association

Tip: Check “other” tabs

Most modern e-mail clients now separate e-mails into different tabs. For example, Outlook has an “Other” tab, and Gmail has tabs for different types of e-mails, such as promotional.

Tip: Click the link within 60 minutes

For security reasons the link will expire after 60 minutes. Try submitting the login form again and wait a few seconds for the e-mail to arrive.

Tip: Only click once

The link will only work one time – once it’s been clicked, the link won’t log you in again. Instead, you’ll need to go back to the login screen and generate a new link.

Tip: Delete old login e-mails

Make sure you’re clicking the link on the most recent e-mail that’s been sent to you. We recommend deleting the e-mail once you’ve clicked the link.

Tip: Check your security policies

Some security systems will automatically click on links in e-mails to check for phishing, malware, viruses and other malicious threats. If these have been clicked, it won’t work when you try to click on the link.

Need to change your e-mail address?

For security reasons, e-mail address changes can only be complete by your Member Engagement Manager. Please contact the team directly for further help.
