As the country adapts to changes brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, a lot of enterprising Filipinos are turning their pastimes and hobbies into full-fledged businesses, utilizing social media and cashless payments.
To aid the growth of micro, small, and medium enterprises all around the country, PayMaya launched the PayMaya Negosyo ‘Bizkarte’ Program which aims to provide MSMEs with tools, resources, and assistance, to help their businesses thrive in the world of digital commerce.
The program offers PayMaya’s end-to-end digital payment solutions bundled with incentives through promotions and rewards for merchants and their customers, co-marketing push for members’ products and services, as well as online training about entrepreneurial and digital skills to help partners grow their businesses in the eCommerce space.
Upon signing up, Bizkarte program members will instantly get access to a Negosyante kit, which will contain social media templates and how-tos that they can use to help promote cashless payments for orders through their Facebook or Instagram pages, through email, or via chat apps.
They’ll also get the chance to promote their products and services to millions of PayMaya users across the country on PayMaya-owned channels including the app, website, and its social media accounts. Customers who pay using PayMaya can enjoy perks of up to 100% Balik Bayad when they #ScanToPay via PayMaya QR.
Bizkarte members also get access to free webinars featuring key industry leaders who can share useful knowledge and insights about the ins and outs of running and growing their business.
Through the PayMaya Negosyo app, MSMEs can easily expand their business to go digital by accepting cashless payments online and offline through PayMaya QR, via bank transfer through InstaPay, or through the Send Money function of the PayMaya app, allowing the business owners to continue serving customers online, while also helping to reduce the further spread of COVID-19, and in-stores, once they are ready to get back to a physical set up.
PayMaya Negosyo offers entrepreneurs more ways to earn money by selling mobile prepaid load and other digital goods available in the app. Soon, they will also be able to accept bill payments and remittances (with proper documentary requirements) via PayMaya Negosyo.
