Almost six months since the Philippines was placed in a community quarantine, the way we do transactions has changed significantly. The new normal has pushed practically everyone to adopt with digital and going cashless. As part of the government’s initiative to push for the digital economy, PayMaya has expanded its cashless payment coverage: from the transport sector, vendor stalls in Manila, to the distribution of financial aid with DSWD.
On top of more than 50 government agencies and local government units (LGUs) accepting card and e-Wallet payments for various transactions, Paymaya recently expanded its platform to Land Transportation Office (LTO), the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the City of Taguig, the Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines (IPOPHL), and the Optical Media Board (OMB), in a bid to make cashless payments mainstream.
“By going digital and offering cashless payment options, the government is helping address our two most pressing issues today: ensuring the safety of all citizens and helping in the recovery of the economy,” PayMaya founder and CEO Orlando Vea said.
To encourage PayMaya users, PayMaya is offering cashback for transactions made with DFA, PRC, NHMFC, the Construction Industry Association of the Philippines, Taxumo, JUANTAX, as well as the mobile app of SSS until September 30.
