Cashless Transportation Powered by PayMayaResponding to the government’s call for contactless and cashless solutions for the transport sector, PayMaya is now enabling operators of various modes of mass transportation with its advanced end-to-end platforms.

The full ecosystem covers public transit, transport hubs, gas stations, and delivery services, among others, and supports the mandate of the DOTr and LTFRB for transportation services to accept contactless payments to limit the spread of the virus causing COVID-19.

Using its digital financial services and solutions, PayMaya will is enabling its partners in the transportation sector to accept contactless payments via card or e-wallet payments either inside vehicles, in transportation hubs, or through their various digital and mobile channels.

PayMaya has enabled the entire transportation chain with digital payments:

  • Commuters – Commuters can easily top-up their beep cards by purchasing credits using the PayMaya app. They can Scan-to-Pay in PayMaya QR-enabled vehicles or pay with a credit, debit, or prepaid card in transport service providers with PayMaya terminals.
  • Transportation Service Providers – PayMaya is enabling the likes of UBE Express (P2P and Airport shuttle services), hirna and EKR Taxi (taxi services), as well as Hype (TNVS) to allow them to accept card and QR payments in vehicles or when commuters book using their apps or websites.
  • Transit Hubs – The Araneta City Bus Port has engaged PayMaya since a few years ago to offer QR and card payments in its hub and through its website.
  • Petroleum Providers – The likes of Petron, Shell, SEAOIL, Uniol, Cleanfuel, RePhil, as well as other major fuel retailers have adopted PayMaya’s One all-in-one Point-of-Sale device to offer contactless payments in gas stations using card or e-Wallet apps.
  • Delivery Services – PayMaya is helping process card transactions for Lalamove and other delivery providers for cashless payments when booking a delivery.
  • Government Agencies – The LTO, Bureau of the Treasury, and PayMaya formally signed an agreement that will soon allow cashless payments powered by PayMaya for motor vehicle registrations and renewals through the LTO website.

Additionally, PayMaya is also in talks with air and water transport providers to enable them to accept cashless payments, reducing the spread of the virus often associated with cash-handling.

Safer transactions for ‘delivery heroes’ 

With many Filipinos stuck at home during the quarantine, many rely on delivery services to order essential items for their day-to-day needs.

In order to protect the “delivery heroes” or riders of the various delivery companies who’re fulfilling these transactions, PayMaya is encouraging them to use contactless QR payments when paying for their customer’s orders at merchant stores or when accepting payments from customers upon delivery.

They can even get a chance to win a new Honda motorcycle when they choose to pay using PayMaya QR.

They can get up to 100% cashback when using PayMaya QR for transactions with partner merchants, and as much as PhP5.00 discount per liter when refueling at gas stations such as Petron.

Transport providers or companies who want to know more about PayMaya’s solutions may send an email to [email protected].
