To simplify the process and bring overseas Filipinos into digital banking and other financial services, PLDT Global Corp. (PLDT Global) has collaborated with the all-in-one money app Maya through the Tindahan ni Bossing or TINBO. PGC is the international arm of integrated telco network PLDT Inc.
“Our partnership with Maya is part of our commitment to give Filipinos all over the world access to the most reliable services that promote financial inclusivity, help them care for their families back home, and more importantly, help them manage their hard-earned money in the most convenient way possible,” said Albert Villa-Real, president and CEO at PLDT Global.
TINBO is a one-stop gateway to help Filipinos living overseas easily access services for their connectivity and financial needs. Customers can register for a TINBO number, a Smart Virtual Number (SVN), that would serve as their Philippine mobile number whenever they are outside the country (via tinbo.ph). The TINBO Number (as powered by Smart Communications Inc.) allows them to receive calls and texts without a physical SIM, including one-time passwords (OTPs), for secure payment transactions.
Overseas Filipinos can create a Maya account using their TINBO number and access the suite of services in the all-in-one money app. TINBO users who sign up for a Maya account, upgrade using the code TINBOMAYA, and proceed with their first transaction can earn up to P100 credits until Dec. 31, 2022. They can also enjoy a 6% interest rate when they open a Maya Savings account until Sept. 30, 2022.
“We are one with PLDT Global’s mission of providing customer-focused digital innovations to Filipinos,” said Khurram Malik, COO at Maya. “This is why we’re pleased to launch this groundbreaking initiative empowering Filipinos abroad with digital financial services for their everyday transactions through Maya.”
