Micro-enterprises and online sellers all across the country now have the capability to accept digital payments anytime, anywhere as leading digital financial services firm PayMaya empowers them with cashless acceptance tools to help them better manage their growing businesses.
Through PayMaya’s QR payments tool and Send Money feature, it’s easier than ever for upstart businesses to accept payments from PayMaya users nationwide–and merchants and their customers don’t have to shoulder or pay transaction fees to be able to settle their purchases because all of these are free with PayMaya.
“Whether you’re shopping clothes from your favorite Instagram seller online or buying items from the small sari-sari store on your street, it’s now easier than ever to pay for your purchases with PayMaya, because it’s a lot more convenient, more secure, and you don’t have to travel far to deposit your payment or incur huge transaction fees just to pay for your items–all you need is your mobile phone,” said Kenneth Palacios, Director and Head of Wallets Business at PayMaya.
Empowering micro-merchants across the country
Palacios said micro-enterprises play a huge role in helping meet the goals of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas to transform at least 20% of total transactions to digital by the year 2020, considering how many micro-enterprises there are currently operating in the Philippines.
To date, PayMaya has now established several “cashless communities” all around the country–particularly in Baguio, La Union, Boracay, Cebu, and General Santos, among others–to equip merchants with QR payment technology and allow the digital wallet users in these areas to pay using only their mobile phones.
Just recently, PayMaya partnered with Bloggers United to bring the first-ever cashless bloggers bazaar this June. Participating bloggers were equipped with their own PayMaya QR code and provided cashless convenience to the event attendees who shopped in their stall.
“We’re grateful to have PayMaya as one of the co-presenters of our event! More than the perks of cashless shopping, our bloggers can utilize PayMaya QR in future bazaars or online selling,” said Aisa Ipac, Marketing Head at Bloggers United.
Bloggers United is a semi-annual bazaar that brings together top bloggers who sell their new and pre-loved items and hold a meet-and-greet as well. This event also allows bloggers to promote their own brand, shop and products.
With the help of PayMaya, a more convenient payment option is now made available to the supporters of these micro-sellers when they sell their products anytime, anywhere.
To create a PayMaya account and transact with your favorite sellers and merchants, just download the app on the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store and sign up using any Philippine mobile number. To be able to do a send money transaction, make sure you upgrade your account from within the app.
