PayMaya, Empowering the #NowNation

Millennials are an internet-savvy bunch.  Many prefer to shop and pay online.  PayMaya makes this possible even without a credit card as it can be used for online purchases, including digital subscriptions such as movies and music.  Since it is prepaid, it is a great way to manage finances because users can only spend what’s in their wallet and nothing more.  Transaction details can be viewed in-app or through through real-time text notifications.

PayMaya is also the preferred means of young entrepreneurs to get paid for their goods and services.  It can be used to pay for web hosting and social media sponsored posts for web managers and many more.  For millennials who are starting to take #adulting tasks seriously, they can pay for MERALCO, PLDT, Smart, Sun, Globe, Sunlife and Maynilad bills using the PayMaya app.

Aside from the virtual card that instantly comes with the mobile app, there is also a physical card that can be used at any Bancnet ATM nationwide where VISA and Mastercard are accepted.  This can be ordered at www.paymaya.com/shop.

There are many reloading stations for the PayMaya wallet.  Simply go to any of the following: SM Business Centers, Robinsons Department Stores, 7-Eleven with CLiQQ kiosks, Ministop with Touchpay kios, Wellcome, Shopwise, 2Go, Smart Padala Centers, Unionbank ATMs, and BDO online banking.
