About Us

Our mission is to strengthen the bond between Jamaicans (and friends of Jamaica) around the world, and those at home in Jamaica, while enriching the Jamaican economy.

MangoErrands was born from a simple idea; “Make it easy to manage how your money is spent in Jamaica from overseas, to pay for goods and services for family, friends, the community, or yourself.”

Through technology and partnership, our website enables users anywhere in the world to pay vendors in Jamaica for goods and services for friends, family and community there.

Our Jamaican founders saw this as a critical need for the country and with advanced payment solutions technology plus the power of local business partnerships, MangoErrands became the first payment solutions platform of its kind for Jamaicans at home and in the Diaspora.

When you use MangoErrands, each transaction makes a meaningful impact. Every time you spend, you restore and support the connection with loved ones back home and contribute to small businesses in the local economy. It’s a reminder that no matter where life takes us, our loved ones, alma maters, community, and our roots are never forgotten.
