PayMaya and Facebook Launch Payment Tools in Messenger

Have you ever felt that you are running out of time? That there are many things that need attending to but you couldn’t accomodate everything all at once since you are pressed for time? I want to do a lot of things. In my dreams I would dream of flying off to a faraway place in a balloon or going deep sea diving with my friends or starting my own enterprise while teaching and keeping my day job as well.

However, it seems like for now it would have to remain a goal or a dream since I still have a lot of things to take care of. In the meantime, I would bask under the sun and enjoy life as it is. 🙂 So just last week we celebrated the birthday of KD’s Dad at Vikings, we all had a great time joking around that in four years he would already be a senior citizen and would be accorded with many benefits like free movie tickets, priority parking in malls and free birthday cakes in Makati. I guess age is just a state of mind.

Afterwards the sumptuous lunch I headed home since I wasn’t feeling well that day due to my ulcer. 😦 At least I got to rest and recover just in preparation for the upcoming working week.

Aside from that I also got to catch up with watching some reruns of my favorite series SUITS which is now on Season 7. Surely many things can be done now with just a tap of your finger since everything is now available online. Can you believe that even while chatting with your friends via messenger you can even send load, pay your bills and better yet receive money? Truly, innovation breaks boundaries as PayMaya, a pioneer and leader in mobile money and digital financial services in the country, partners with Facebook.

This partnership was brought about to address the needs of the unbanked households since according to the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas, 86% of Filipino households don’t have a deposit account. As one of the most popular messaging apps in the Philippines, Messenger offers a much easier way for people to create a new account for daily financial transactions.

Using PayMaya in Messenger is simple. A customer just needs to search for @PayMayaOfficial on Messenger on an Android device to start a transaction. The chatbot will guide the user on the available menu options. New PayMaya users can create their account using Messenger while those who already have the PayMaya app installed on their Android phones can link their wallet to Messenger.

Once in Messenger, they can inquire about their PayMaya wallet balance, pay bills and send money to other Messenger users, regardless if they are already on PayMaya or not. People can also buy mobile load on their phone with a substantial discount anytime, anywhere, directly in Messenger.

Aside from accessing PayMaya in Messenger, PayMaya also comes with a physical card that can be linked to the mobile wallet.  This physical card can be ordered through free of delivery charges and can be used at any Bancnet ATM nationwide, and anywhere VISA and Mastercard are accepted. PayMaya users can link up to three PayMaya physical cards to their app. For more information on how to this goes check this out.

  • ICYDK, PayMaya holds the largest network of reloading touchpoints with over 15,000 top up stations nationwide, which include SM Business Centers, Robinsons Department Stores, 7-Eleven with Cliqq Kiosks, Bayad Centers, Petron stations along NLEX and Ministop outlets with Touchpay Kiosks, Shopwise, Wellcome, 2Go outlets, Smart Padala centers, Palawan Pawnshop branches, UnionBank ATMs, Gaisano Malls, and online banking via BDO and UnionBank.
