western-union.jpgGraceKennedy Limited (GK) and its partner Western Union announced today an expansion of the company's digital money transfer service, which will allow Jamaicans to send funds via an online platform to 200 countries globally.

Effective April 1, the Jamaica operations of GraceKennedy Money Services, a GK subsidiary, will be the first in the Caribbean and Latin America to offer the digital service at WesternUnion.com.

To use the new outbound service, consumers in Jamaica can begin the registration process online but must go to a physical location to complete the process, including providing identification.

Thereafter they will be able to send and receive funds online. The methods of payment include debit, credit card and Apple Pay.

Previously, money could be received online in Jamaica, but not sent. The launch of the service brings to 42 the number of countries which now have the digital transactional service from Western Union.
