Motorists traversing NLEX can now pay their tollway fees by tapping their Beep, and Mastercard contactless debit, prepaid and credit cards including their Smart Mastercard powered by PayMaya. Acceptance for CAVITEX will commence soon. Consumers will also be able to pay at MPTC tollroads with their Visa contactless debit, prepaid and credit cards this year.
PayMaya Business, which delivers solutions that enable businesses of all sizes to accept payments, powers the end-to-end acceptance of contactless card payments at NLEX and CAVITEX. This is the first-of-its-kind payment acceptance initiative for tollways in the country.
This move will further strengthen the electronic toll collections of MPTC expressways, enabling faster and more convenient cashless transactions for consumers. This step also ushers the interoperability in MPTC toll roads where motorists and vehicle owners can use just one prepaid payment card to pass through NLEX and CAVITEX.
“At PayMaya, we strive to create a long-lasting impact in emerging markets through digital financial services. We hope that this collaboration with MPTC will further enhance the customer experience of motorists and consumers who rely on NLEX and CAVITEX for their day-to-day travel,” said Orlando Vea, President and CEO of Voyager Innovations and PayMaya.
“We continue to be ahead of the demands of our motorists in terms of providing an excellent customer service in line with the digital age. Partnering with PayMaya and making its technology accessible in both NLEX and CAVITEX enables interoperability between both toll roads, matching the expectations of road users when it comes to convenience, efficiency, and time savings,” said Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation President and CEO Rodrigo Franco.
