Virtual payment system PayMaya introduces “Pay with PayMaya,” which allows consumers to pay with just their mobile number.
By clicking on the “Pay with PayMaya” button in the checkout page of partner merchants, online shoppers no longer need to memorize and type in long and complex credit or debit card numbers, because all they have to do is log in to their PayMaya account by entering their mobile numbers upon checkout.
Through this new feature, paying for anything online becomes quicker, more convenient, and safer, because every transaction done using “Pay with PayMaya” needs to be verified by a One-Time-PIN (OTP) sent to the mobile number.
“PayMaya was the first in the Philippines to introduce a virtual card so that Filipinos can easily pay for their purchases online, even if they don’t have a credit card or bank account. With “Pay with PayMaya,” we are making that experience even better because all you need is your mobile number linked to your PayMaya account, whenever you shop or avail of services online,” said Shailesh Baidwan, president, PayMaya.
Today, the “Pay with PayMaya” button is available as a payment option in select food, drinks, deals, retail, and government partners but will be expanding to more online commerce sites and destinations in the coming weeks.
And to make users’ “Pay with PayMaya” experience not just more convenient but also more rewarding, account holders can get a 1%, 10%, or 100% cashback each time they use their PayMaya mobile number to pay online (maximum of P500 per transaction) at participating online merchants from Dec. 11, 2019 to Jan. 15, 2020.
By introducing this new feature, PayMaya is helping Filipinos easily embrace the digital and cashless lifestyle so they can purchase items and avail of services online using the one number that they already have memorized–their mobile phone number.
And for online merchants and sites that do not have the “Pay with PayMaya” button yet, account holders can still use the virtual card in the PayMaya app to pay for their purchases online.
