In an era of digital transformation, Jamaica is witnessing a technological revolution with more local stakeholders investing in digital-first solutions and collaborations. One such collaboration is the one between JamlitePOS and Lynk, Jamaica’s leading digital wallet. JamlitePOS has integrated with Lynk’s business platform to enable over 80 stores in the retail, wholesale and hospitality sector to accept digital payments easily using assigned QR codes.
Let’s explore the advantages this partnership brings and why embracing digital wallets over cash is a game-changer for local customers and businesses.
Using JamlitePOS in conjunction with Lynk offers unparalleled convenience and efficiency. When companies embrace cashless options, their customers can worry less about carrying physical cash or having the right change. It addresses one huge issue: the risk of theft and endangerment. Quick and seamless transactions can be conducted with a few quick taps on one’s phone or by scanning a QR code, improving the checkout experience.
Dedicating itself to increasing financial inclusion, Lynk is bridging the gap between the banked and unbanked. This means that convenient, safe digital payments are available for everyone. Customers can fund their primary wallet with cash from any local bank or, for those without bank accounts, by using the contactless option at NCB ABM to deposit cash using a QR code.
Lynk is currently the only wallet holder for Jamaica’s Central Bank Digital Currency – JAM-DEX. Customers currently have a unique opportunity to earn as they spend using the JAM-DEX wallet in Lynk. With this offer, which is funded by the Government of Jamaica, when you spend in JAM-DEX, you get 2% cash back on up to $5,000 in purchases monthly. This incentive programme will continue until March 31, 2024.
Merchants also benefit from quick processing times which can aid in creating shorter queues, and increased customer satisfaction. Digital payments present unmatched opportunities to deliver exceptional customer service.
Digital wallets provide enhanced security compared to cash transactions. With JamlitePOS and Lynk, customer payment information is encrypted end-to-end and each user account is protected using biometrics, thus reducing the risk of unauthorized access. This added layer of security builds trust and confidence in the payment ecosystem, fostering a safer environment for conducting transactions.

JamlitePOS, now integrated with Lynk, empowers customers and businesses with streamlined financial management. Users can effortlessly track and manage their spending through in-app transaction history, enabling better budgeting and expense tracking. Additionally, merchants can access comprehensive sales data, allowing for data-driven decision-making and improved inventory management. This transaction information simplifies record-keeping, tax reporting, and overall financial management, providing businesses with invaluable insights into their operations.
As the world adapts to a post-pandemic reality, the integration of JamlitePOS with Lynk promotes contactless payments, prioritizing hygiene and safety. By supporting contactless payment methods, customers can complete transactions without physical contact, reducing the risk of spreading viruses. This technology not only safeguards public health but also enhances the overall shopping experience by offering a fast and convenient payment solution that aligns with changing consumer preferences.
Accepting digital payments in JamlitePOS marks an exciting milestone in Jamaica’s digital payment and Point of Sale landscape and integration with Lynk’s payment platform is an integral step in improving JamlitePOS and delivering value to businesses. By embracing digital wallets over cash, businesses unlock a myriad of benefits, including convenience, security, streamlined financial management, and the promotion of contactless payments. Together, these advancements pave the way for a more efficient, secure, and customer-centric payment ecosystem in Jamaica.
