Why Sell into Jamaica?

The Jamaica of the western imagination is different from the Jamaica citizens know and live. Even before the Covid-19 pandemic, the Jamaican economy was on a slow growth curve at 1.6%. With tourism almost brought to a halt, analysts believe the island nation – one of the largest in the Caribbean in terms of geography and population – won’t see growth again until 2022.

Strong mobile adoption and use of large ecommerce marketplaces. Jamaicans tend to purchase consumer electronics, beauty and personal care items, and grocery/hard goods items from large marketplaces. Most commonly used ecommerce platforms include Magento and Shopify.

Popular payment types in Jamaica

The Jamaican payments infrastructure is underdeveloped, with sources noting that many banks on the islands lack relationships with payment vendors like PayPal.
