In order to facilitate the structured introduction of additional electronic retail payment systems and by extension enhancing financial inclusion, the Bank of Jamaica (Bank) on 1 February 2013, published on its website, the Guidelines for Electronic Retail Payment Services (Guidelines). These Guidelines were revised and published on the Bank’s website on 1 November 2018, in recognition of changes and developments in the financial services sector and particularly in the retail payment services sector. The 2019 Guidelines for Electronic Retail Payment Services (ERPS 2), will take effect on 1 February 2019

The purpose of ERPS 2, is to support the continued effort of the Bank to foster the design, development and implementation of electronic retail payment systems, which take advantage of available technology, to provide more efficient payment services in a safe, secure and competitive environment.
