LOOK: Paying Bills, Sending Money, and Buying Load Are Now Possible in Facebook Messenger
It doesn’t even matter if you’ve got a bank or mobile money account or not.
(SPOT.ph) Sending money to your family or paying bills is a big part of everyday adulting. And thanks to innovative products and services, doing either has become easier and easier to do. PayMaya, a prepaid payment app, has even made it possible to do money transactions using Messenger. The best part? You don’t need an online bank or an existing mobile money account to do so.
Using PayMaya on Messenger is simple. A customer just needs to search for @PayMayaOfficial on Messenger on an Android device to start a transaction. The chatbot will guide the user on the available menu options. New PayMaya users can create their account using Messenger while those who already have the PayMaya app installed on their Android phones can link their wallet to Messenger.
Once on Messenger, they can inquire about their PayMaya wallet balance, pay bills and send money to other Messenger users (regardless if they are already on PayMaya or not). People can also buy mobile load on their phone with a substantial discount anytime and anywhere, directly on Messenger.
Aside from accessing it on Messenger, PayMaya also comes with a physical card that can be linked to the mobile wallet. This physical card can be ordered through www.paymaya.com/shop free of delivery charges and can be used at any Bancnet ATM nationwide and anywhere VISA and Mastercard are accepted.

PayMaya holds the largest network of reloading touchpoints with over 15,000 top-up stations nationwide. This includes SM Business Centers, Robinsons Department Stores, 7-Eleven with Cliqq kiosks, Petron stations along NLEX and Ministop outlets with Touchpay kiosks, Shopwise, Wellcome, 2Go outlets, Smart Padala centers, Palawan Pawnshop branches, UnionBank ATMs, and Gaisano Malls. Online banking via BDO and UnionBank is also possible.
PayMaya is both an app-first and a card-first prepaid payment service. Users can opt to have the card first and connect it to their app later on for a shared wallet experience, and vice versa. PayMaya is also telco-agnostic, which means you can create an account regardless of network provider.
