Benefit – No need to depend on visa/mastercard for international transaction. smile

I think no MDR earns on JCB network but JCB give access to use your RuPay card on international ATMs, POS and international websites.

RuPay & JCB both parties entered into a strategic partnership, JCB card’s acceptance coverage in India reach to 100% for card merchants and ATMs, which will better serve the increasing number of people visiting India especially from Asia where JCB has a large card member base. Meanwhile, the door for international acceptance for RuPay brand will be wider open with the partnership with JCB.

RuPay & JCB strategic partnership would be marked as a key milestone in the Asian payment ecosystem. It will be a win-win situation for both nations of Asia to exchange and achieve card payment dynamism with a view to enhance the acceptance of RuPay cards at JCBI’s network & vice-versa.

JCB now extend European roll-out, POS merchant & online E-commerce transactions.
so, now RuPay-JCB Cards will accept more places in European countries & online websites.

Note – In India, 90% of credit card transactions and almost 99% all debit cards transactions are domestic; however, the cost per transaction was low with RuPay card compared to foreign card schemes.

Most of the Indian card customer apply visa/mastercard for international transaction but they will use visa/mastercard only 1 or 2 times for foreign websites, rest of all transaction use within India. so, its better apply for RuPay-JCB Global Card for international transaction.

Hypothetically speaking, If rupay gets wide spread acceptance like visa. does it mean we save on foreign currency while doing foreign transactions/international visit?

India can save foregein currency on the gateway charges plus India can earn foreign currency from charges earned from other country users….. This amount is huge……

I am mailing my banks to ask if they have the same cards I am using with RuPay as the issuer……

Yes,

For example – RuPay card network now official launch in Bhutan (all ATMs and POS terminals in Bhutan now support RuPay card network).

The RMA (Bhutan’s central bank) maintains an account with the State Bank of India. Any withdrawal by a RuPay card holder in Bhutan would be settled through an instant credit into the RMA’s account. The arrangement is expected to benefit both countries by minimizing foreign currency outflow. Visa and MasterCard payments are settled in US dollars, while RuPay Card can be settled in rupees. The Bhutanese Ngultrum is fixed at a one-to-one exchange rate with the Indian rupee making settlement easy for both countries. In addition, Bhutanese banks will issue RuPay cards that will allow Bhutanese card holders to access the RuPay Card network in India or other countries.

Us time par uco se katne ke ke baad I used axis and boi ,idbi and SBI no charges deducted,
I had not opened account in Baroda but chosen BOI after research, BOI did not debit for online tx debit , but for offline debit entries boi also deducts
UCO had mentioned that but I missed reading their charges and ended up paying hefty penalty
and all debit entries were charged including neft imps netbanking online payments and card payments , it seems now they changed their tnc and allowing online transactions
,
I never paid any charge to any bank for using debit card , this debit card transaction charge told by you is a new thing to me,
