J.P. Morgan Merchant Services Named #1 eCommerce Acquirer in Europe

J.P. Morgan's continued focus on the payments space is bearing fruit as the latest issue of The Nilson Report has ranked the firm as follows:

  • #1 eCommerce acquirer in Europe by web transactions for the fifth year running
  • #4 merchant acquirer in Europe by transactions, up from #6 in 2018 and with a 17% year-over-year increase in volume
According to the report, the 45 largest acquirers handled 18.11 billion (up 44.4%) web-based (online and mobile) transactions in 2019 valued at $975.24 billion. J.P. Morgan Merchant Services held a 24.9% market share of all web-based transactions among the top 45 acquirers in Europe. The business also pulled ahead of Credit Agricole and Credit Mutuel to become Europe's 4th largest Mastercard/Visa acquirer in 2019.

"Ensuring we provide clients with connectivity through our eCommerce capabilities has been a huge focus area in recent years, and these payments have only increased in prevalence in 2020 as the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted consumer behaviours and we have seen a clear spending shift from physical stores to online merchants," said Ray McDonnell, Managing Director and Co-Head of Merchant Services in Europe. "We continue to guide clients through a complex regulatory and cybersecurity environment, working towards our goal of enabling them to accept payments anywhere in the world, in any currency, and through any method of payment."
