To provide Filipinos a more convenient, faster, and more secure option in paying utility bills, PayMaya happily announced its partnership with Bayad Center.

Said partnership will allow users to pay their utility bills from MERALCO, PLDT, Laguna Water, and Cignal through the PayMaya app. Eventually, more partners and government agencies are expected to join the list, including Smart, Sun Cellular, SSS, Pag-IBIG, PhilHealth, POEA, Maynilad, PRC, and NBI among others.

“At PayMaya, we strive to accelerate financial inclusion in emerging markets and improve lives through payment innovations. Our partnership with the leading payment fulfillment company Bayad Center is a demonstration of this commitment. Through the Pay Bills feature of PayMaya, we are proud to redefine the customer experience of Filipinos and provide a hassle-free option to pay their bills by a simple tap on their smartphone from the comfort of their home, without the need for a bank account or enroll their bills,” Orlando Vea, President and CEO of PayMaya Philippines and Voyager Innovations, the digital innovations arm of PLDT and Smart, said.

“Bayad Center has always been committed to bringing the payment collection service closer to every Filipino. Through PayMaya, we make it even more convenient for the paying public to settle their bills since they can easily access the facility through their mobile phones. What is even better is that our OFWs can now pay for their bills back home without having to send money and pay charges. It is payment made available anytime, anywhere,” Oscar Reyes, Chairman of Bayad Center, also shared.

For existing users of PayMaya, simply update the app to be able to enjoy the new feature. Meanwhile, new users can go to the Google Play Store (Android) and Apple App Store (iOS) to download the app.
