We require a business merchant bank account from NCB, FGB or BNS with a First Atlantic Commerce account as well (FAC). Alternately, the merchant account can be open with our Partners Lasco Financial Services in which case you don’t have to have a business account or registered business.
We have recently entered into a partnership with LascoBiz who will eliminate the need to have a merchant ecommerce account. See link for registration https://register.lascobizja.com/

The FAC account, which stands for First Atlantic Commerce account, serves as a payment processor enabling the acceptance and processing of credit and debit card payments globally. Additionally, it facilitates payment processing and settlements with various banking partners throughout the Caribbean Region. In Jamaica FAC is partnered with JNCB, BNS, and FGB.
A merchant account is a type of bank account that enables businesses to accept and process payments from their customers through various electronic payment methods, such as credit cards, debit cards, and online payments. It acts as an intermediary between the business, the customer, and the financial institutions involved in the transaction.
After successfully establishing your merchant account, kindly notify NCB (National Commercial Bank) that you are initiating the setup process with Amber Pay, as they are already familiar with the procedure. Request NCB to proceed with the establishment of your FAC account (First Atlantic Commerce). Please note that NCB clients must complete the FAC account setup through NCB bank exclusively. However, if you are a client of BNS (Bank of Nova Scotia) or FGB (First Global Bank), kindly furnish us with the necessary details of your merchant ID, and we will handle the opening of the FAC account on your behalf.
