We Convert Your PayPal Funds to Jamaican Dollars

Humbird eCash is an online service for Jamaican residents that converts your PayPal funds to Jamaican dollars and transfers it to your Jamaican bank account.

Humbird eCash is a division of Humbird Media and was originally developed to serve their Jamaican e-commerce website clients. With the popular PayPal gateway integrated into their website, they began getting paid by customers online, but had difficulty withdrawing their PayPal funds because they did not have a US-registered bank account (not to be confused with a Jamaican-registered bank account in USD currency).

With Humbird eCash, they were able to transfer their PayPal funds and receive the Jamaican equivalent in their Jamaican bank account within 3-5 business days.

The service is now open to all Jamaicans and signing up for a Humbird eCash account is quick and free.

 

As a Humbird eCash member, you no longer have to wait 2-4 weeks to receive a PayPal cheque in the mail, and you can bypass going to the bank to encash your funds all together.

Processing Fees

Humbird eCash charges 18.5% of every amount transferred. This processing fee covers PayPal fees, banking fees & service fees.

Once the 18.5% processing fee is charged, the remaining amount is converted to Jamaican dollars at an exchange rate of JM$140. The final amount is deposited to your Jamaican bank account in Jamaican dollars.

Here's an example

  • Melissa requests a transfer of US$500.

  • After Humbird eCash charges 18.5% for processing fees, a total of US$407.50 remains.

  • This US$ 407.50 is converted to Jamaican dollars using a flat $140 exchange rate. That means the Jamaican equivalent would be JM$57,050.

  • JM$57,050 is transferred to Melissa's bank account within 3-5 business days.​
