BARBADOS

In August 1992, Barbados Shipping and Trading Company Limited (BS&T) became agents of Western Union International. In 2014, BS&T was sold to the Massy Group, and they moved the Western Union portfolio under the company Massycard (Barbados) Limited in 2016. Western Union services are currently offered in ten (10) sub-agent locations throughout Barbados. We help people and businesses move money for better—better communities, better economies, and a better world.

As an agent of Western Union, the following services are offered throughout our agent locations:

Making Good Things Happen

We believe that when money moves freely, good things happen. A business grows. A child goes to college. Emergency aid goes where it’s needed. We help people move their money to make good things happen.
