As part of its efforts to bring banking services to islands, the Bank introduced its Cash Agent service in 2014. Today, there are over 200 Cash Agents providing cash withdrawal services across the islands. With today’s announcement, 40 of these local retailers now provide cash deposits as well as payment services with no additional charges.
BML’s CEO and Managing Director Tim Sawyer commented, “Using our existing POS network to establish Cash Agents has proven to be a successful model in our Financial Inclusion strategy. Cash Agents work similar to ATMs in that they can be used for cash withdrawals, deposits and payments through a POS terminal using customer’s debit card. Local communities can bank conveniently in their home island, without the need to travel to the nearest branch or ATM.”
