If you don’t use PayMaya yet, you’ve been missing out.
Millions of Filipinos have been using the country’s first prepaid online payment app to shop online and in-store, pay their bills, send money, make travel bookings and buy prepaid load and gaming pins. PayMaya is the first financial technology company offering digital financial services to Filipinos, equipping them with an e-wallet that they can use anytime, anywhere in the world, from any device. PayMaya gives you access to the world of e-commerce while also letting you pay in stores via QR codes or using your physical PayMaya card. It has made everyday transactions more convenient.
PayMaya recently launched its campaign “Don’t Pay Cash. PayMaya!” to encourage more Filipinos to start using the service. And it is a great service, one that has been giving us more and more reasons to go cashless.
“PayMaya is undoubtedly the best way to pay in the Philippines today. Our formula is simple – make digital payments accessible, more convenient, more secure, more rewarding, and more fun. With a newer and smoother app experience, the biggest discounts and cashback promos, and an ever-growing network of merchant and add money partners, it’s now better to ‘PayMaya’ instead of paying with cash,” said Paolo Azzola, chief operating officer and managing director of PayMaya.
Get your own mobile payment account instantly—all you have to do is download the PayMaya app (it’s available on App Store and Google Play), sign up using Messenger or buy a physical card. And if you’ve already been using PayMaya, make sure you update to the new app (it’s now available to Android users and will soon be available for iOS devices).
“Expect more features and services to roll out in the coming months. Our goal is to make the payment experience of every Filipino hassle-free and more secure,” said Azzola.
Here are top five of the many reasons to go cashless with PayMaya.
When you pay with cash, once you hand over your money, it’s bye-bye money. But with PayMaya’s Cashback deals, you can get some of your money back when you spend. (Crazy, we know.)
Every time you buy P100 worth of prepaid load or gaming pins using the PayMaya app until October 31, you can earn up to 100% cashback. Also until October 31, #ScantoPay when you shop and you can get as much as P500 cashback when you accumulate P5000 in purchases.
Send money instantly
Need to send money to a loved one? If you use cash, that would mean going somewhere, lining up, filling out forms (who likes filling out forms?) and waiting. But if you use your PayMaya app, you can send money in real-time from wherever you are. And guess what? Until October 31, each time you send at least P100, you get P10 back. And if you send an accumulated amount of at least P5000 during this promo period, you get an additional P150 cashback.
Paying bills can be such a hassle with those long queues. We like paying our bills using PayMaya so we can do it from the convenience of our home or office or wherever we are, really. No need to waste time standing in line—make your credit card, insurance, utility payments and more using the PayMaya app.
Get discounts and rewards
PayMaya gives its users access to special discounts and rewards. You can buy prepaid load for less and you can get great deals when you shop or book online using your PayMaya account.
Shop at Zalora with PayMaya, spend at least P500 and get 12% off using the code PM12OFF. This promo runs until December 31 (brand exclusions apply). Until November 30, #ScantoPay at BonChon and get up to two vouchers for a one-piece chicken boxed meal or a bibimbowl per month.
You get 6% cashback when you make hotel bookings through Booking.com/PayMaya until November 3. Use Agoda.com/PayMaya to make hotel bookings worldwide until February 15, 2020 (stay period is until August 31, 2020) and get a 7% discount. PayMaya users can book ZEN Rooms at 15% off if you use the code PayMaya15 until December 31.
These are just some of the many deals and discounts PayMaya users get to enjoy, some even better than credit card rewards.
Spend safely and securely
It’s easy to lose track of your spending when you’re using cash (unless you’re really diligent in jotting down every expense). Sticking to your budget is easier with PayMaya. You can just load your account with the amount you’re willing to spend. You can do this through InstaPay or by linking your debit card or credit card or going through PayMaya’s Add Money Partners (you’ll find the full list on the app.)
PayMaya keeps a record of all your transactions so you can see where your hard-earned dough is going. Unlike cash, your PayMaya cannot be stolen. Security measures are in place to make sure your account is safe (you can even activate Touch ID for logging into the app.) PayMaya has launched a new black card design that keeps the card number and other sensitive information at the back. You also get real-time SMS notifications so you’re sure that each transaction is one you have authorized.
With PayMaya, you can spend smartly, safely and securely. So for whatever it is you need to pay, don’t pay cash, PayMaya.
