PayMaya, in collaboration with the Development Bank of the Philippines, has equipped the city of Antipolo with PayMaya Checkout, allowing citizens to pay for various local government fees on its website using any Visa, Mastercard, or JCB credit, debit, and prepaid card, PayMaya and other e-wallets.
PayMaya has also enabled over 9,500 MSME touchpoints in Antipolo with digital payment solutions. Citizens can now enjoy contactless payments at the City Mall and public market. They can also pay for tricycle rides at several routes served by the Antipolo Tricycle Operators’ and Drivers’ Association (TODA) using PayMaya QR. They can also go to the nearest Smart Padala by PayMaya to add money to their PayMaya account or cash out their funds.
Building Antipolo’s cashless ecosystem is part of PayMaya’s LGUs Embracing and Accelerating Digitalization (LEAD) program, which aims to accelerate the digital transformation of the government from the ground up by enabling citizens to transact through online and mobile channels.
“Through this initiative with PayMaya, we are strengthening our mission to provide safer and more convenient transactions within the city,” said Antipolo City Mayor Andrea Ynares.
“Digital is key in accelerating financial inclusion. Antipolo City is leading the way with a well-rounded approach that addresses the needs of the citizens, businesses, and local government,” PayMaya Founder and CEO Orlando B. Vea said.
