Additionally, you are required to accept the terms and conditions of our online banking agreement; this is accepted electronically on our website.

What if I do not accept the Online Banking Agreement for online banking access?

If you do not accept the Online Banking Agreement, you will not be able to gain access to the system. You may find it convenient to print this Agreement from our website and read it over to fully understand it, and then return later to complete the login process. If you have any questions about the customer agreement, please call 1-888-CALL FGB (225-5342) within Jamaica or 1-876-929-3383-6.

Can I pay bills online using online banking (Global Access)?

Yes. You can pay your credit card and other bills from our extensive list of billers. Global Access allows you three modes of payment. You may choose to make an immediate payment, a one-time future-dated payment, or recurring payments using the standing order feature of the system. Our standing order payment feature allows you to pre-configure the date, amount and frequency of a payment to be made.

What proof do I receive for the bill payments I make through Global Access?

A Payment ID is provided when the payment is completed. If you have any questions or problems, contact a customer care agent at 1-888-CALL FGB (1-888-225-5342) within Jamaica or 1-876-929-3383-6.

I run a business and I am not always there. Can someone else execute payment if I am unavailable?

Yes. We offer businesses the ability to create online IDs for multiple users, each with the access level you designate. There are currently four (4) access/activity levels that can be assigned to a user:

  • Inquiry - This level allows you to obtain current account balance and transaction information. This level does not allow transfers of funds from this account to any active accounts;
  • Entry – This level allows you to initiate (enter) payments and transfers;
  • Authorize - This level allows you approve transactions for processing; and
  • Entry and Authorize - This level allows the user to both enter and approve transactions entered in “Global Access”, this includes funds transfer and bill payment.

Individual clients are automatically assigned entry and authorize access/activity levels, whereas corporate and business account activity levels must be assigned by the account signatories. Activity levels for corporate and business accounts should be defined during the online registration process.

Is their any additional protection provided if I designate a person to act in my absence?

Yes. In addition to the above, we can also place transaction limits on each User ID.

Can my Accounts Receivable system be linked to Global Access?

Yes. Call our representatives at 1-888-CALL FGB (1-888-225-5342) within Jamaica or 1-876-929-3383-6 to discuss how Straight Through Processing (STP) integration can be done with your core accounting receivable or payable systems.

Can I cancel or stop a payment, if payment was made to the wrong payee?

If you scheduled a payment to be processed immediately, you will not be able to stop the payment. Any other scheduled or recurring payments may be canceled if done within one bank business day before the process date. Contact our customer care centre at 1-888-CALL FGB (1-888-225-5342) within Jamaica or 1-876-929-3383-6, for further assistance.

What do the different statuses mean after I submit a Payment instruction?

  • Entered: This means the transaction is entered and is awaiting verification or approval
  • To Repair: Means there is an error in the transaction that requires your attention
  • Sent: This means your payment instructions have been submitted successfully for further processing
  • Received: This means your payment instruction was received and is pending further processing by the bank
  • Completed: This means your instruction has been executed and your account debited to reflect the instructions. This however, applies only for payment within First Global Bank. Where the instruction requires an account to be credited outside of FGB, please refer to the e-banking agreement for those settlement times.
