PayMaya Empowers Millennials in #NowNation Campaign!

PayMaya Philippines (formerly Smart e-Money, Inc), the financial services arm of Smart and PLDT, launched #NowNation, a campaign that aims to inspire and enable the millennials to seize the day and pursue their passions be it in sports, music, fashion, gaming, and travel.

PayMaya is a free app that millennials can download from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store. The app gives you a virtual Visa card that you can use to pay and shop online. With PayMaya, millennials can pursue their passions in many fields such as travel, fashion and many others as you can use the app to book seat sales and flights, shop online, upgrade music streaming apps, hail Uber rides, and so much more!

You can also request for a PayMaya physical Visa card that you can use to swipe and pay at brick-and-mortar stores here and abroad wherever Visa is accepted.

Users can connect their PayMaya app and cards and request to upgrade their account by sending a message to our official Facebook page at Once upgraded, millennials can do more with their PayMaya such as peer-to-peer mobile money transfers, and cash withdrawal at any Bancnet ATM.

PayMaya is so awesome and easy to use as you can load it at any of its over 15,000 reloading stations nationwide that include: SM Malls Business Centers, Robinsons Department Stores, Bayad Centers, 7-Eleven stores with Cliqq kiosks, TouchPay Kiosks, and Smart Padala Centers, on top of online banking via BDO. PayMaya is bank-agnostic and this means you do not need to go to bank branches just to load your account.
