The Department of Trade and Industry tapped digital financial services leader PayMaya to give business name registration applicants several online payment options.
Launched along with the department’s new business name registration system, the digital payment options provided by PayMaya aims to make the process more convenient to the public.
“Long queues, inefficient and slow services in government will soon be a thing of the past. Our agreement with ePayment platforms completes our business name registration system as we are now able to provide our citizens the convenience of having to transact with DTI through their mobile phones at the comfort of their homes, or wherever they are, 24/7,” said Trade secretary Ramon Lopez.
PayMaya empowered the Trade Department to accept all forms of non-cash payments such as Visa, Mastercard, and JCB credit, debit, and prepaid card payments for business registration fees.
For those without a payment card, they can sign up for a PayMaya account by downloading the PayMaya app on their iOS or Android devices.
