PayMaya Philippines Inc. said it will deploy contactless payments via PayMaya QR to the newly launched vendor stalls established by the city government of Manila.
Buyers at the “cashless stalls” located near the Manila City Hall and in Divisoria may soon pay using their PayMaya app and without having to hand out cash to vendors.
“Manila City is one of the LGUs that are leading the way in digitalization. Citizens can receive their financial assistance direct to their own PayMaya accounts linked to their Manila City ID cards, and now vendors can easily and safely accept cashless payments via PayMaya,” PayMaya founder and chief executive Orlando Vea said.
“We are proud to be a partner in the city’s digitalization efforts,” he said.
Manila is at the forefront of transforming the nation’s capital into one of the first “cashless cities” and teamed up with PayMaya in disbursing benefits to senior citizens, persons with disabilities, and solo parents through PayMaya cards even before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
