PayMaya and Smart look to rollout QR Codes faster Nationwide

Last May, PayMaya introduced Quick Response Codes (QR Codes) payments via their app. Now they are expanding the usage of this scan-to-pay feature nationwide. Smart, among others, will now allow their customers to pay via QR codes.

Smart subscribers will now have the ability to pay via QR codes as Smart stores across the country will have PayaMaya's QR technology. In addition to that, PayMaya is getting in touch with smaller merchants such as school canteens in STI and commercial establishments in cashless cities like Muntinlupa and Malabon.

They are also tapping the popular WiFi-ready merchants in SmartSpots such as Baguio, Cebu and Davao. PayMaya is making an effort to provide the masses with a more convenient and secure way of paying.

This is just the beginning though as PayMaya is looking to install this kind of system in popular food chains, supermarkets, and malls such as McDonald's, Army Navy, Domino's Pizza, and Gaisano Supermarkets. They are even planning to reach out to smaller Smart retail partners like sari-sari stores and install the same system as well.

Orlando B. Vea, President and CEO of PayMaya Philippines and Voyager Innovations, stated this about the new developments in the cashless payments:

As PayMaya continues to grow nationwide, we take a giant step for our customers by making QR code payments available to all kinds of merchants. PayMaya is the leading digital payments wallet and on the merchant side, this will reinforce our position as the top mobile payments acquirer in the country.

Eric R. Alberto, PLDT and Smart's Chief Revenue Officer also added this:

Convenient and secure cashless transactions complete the digital life experience of people and communities. Equipping our Smart Stores, partner merchants, and retailers with PayMaya's innovative platforms is a step in making our vision a reality.

QR Code has been around for years now. It has been well utilized around the globe. However, since the Philippines is becoming more prominent in terms of technology and internet, PayMaya decided to take advantage of the technology. They had it built in to their app so that if a person downloads the app then he will also be able to use QR codes out of the app.

Manuel V. Pangilinan, Chairman of PLDT, Smart, Voyager Innovations PayMaya, emphasized that it takes a lot to make this project successful

For any kind of digital payments technology to be widely adopted, it is important to foster the right conditions and build the ecosystem. PayMaya is already leading the market toward this direction. Along with the strongest network of PLDT and Smart, we are seeing digital financial inclusion in action.

This is great news for people looking for a fast and more secure way of paying.
