Did you know that you can send aguinaldo to your inaanak (or even to your special friends) this Christmas? This is made easier with PayMaya’s partnership with Facebook. While prayers and thoughts of love and affection are among the best gestures this Christmas, giving something to buy tangible gifts can definitely put a smile to their faces.
Aguinaldo has always been part of the Filipino tradition during Christmas. I remember when my ninong used to give me PhP100 when I was young. “Here’s something for you to buy your favorite Marvel cards,” he said. It’s one of those times that made my Christmas like no other.
With PayMaya’s “Promos and gifts” via Facebook Messenger, the Filipino Christmas tradition sticks around, enabled by a technology most of us are used to.
To be able to do this via PayMaya in Messenger, anyone can follow these simple steps:
If the sender already has a PayMaya account, they only have to link their account to Messenger by chatting with @PayMayaOfficial. If not, they can sign up for an account using any mobile number from all networks using Messenger.
Once the account is linked to Messenger, they can upgrade their accounts to use the ‘Send Aguinaldo’ feature and load up their accounts via the more than 15,000 top-up partners that PayMaya has nationwide.
To send an ‘aguinaldo’, simply chat with @PayMayaOfficial in Messenger, click the “Promos & Gifts” tab, and click the “Send Aguinaldo” option.
Choose which Facebook friend to send the ‘aguinaldo’ to, enter the amount of money to be sent, and swipe right or left to choose the perfect design to go along with the money gift.
After tapping the “Pay” button, the user will be asked to enter their Facebook password, after which the money will be sent to the recipient.
What are you waiting for? Try this out, and share the love this Christmas!
