For safer cashless payments on museums

Using the PayMaya QR code displayed on ticketing booths, tourists in Intramuros can pay for tickets and other admission costs in the various tourist attractions in the area contactless using their phones. 

In particular, PayMaya QR is available in areas such as Fort Santiago, Casa Manila Museum, and Baluarte de Santiago.

All they need to do is scan the PayMaya QR code using their PayMaya app to pay for the necessary fees and avoiding person-to-person contact with the site personnel. This is a safer way to pay for fees, especially during a pandemic.

PayMaya fully supports the DOT's efforts to bolster safety in the domestic tourism industry as we chart our path toward economic recovery. With the help of cashless payments powered by PayMaya, local tourists and visitors in Intramuros and other local destinations can be assured that it’s not just more fun but, more importantly, more convenient and safer to travel around the country at this time, said Orlando B. Vea, Founder and CEO of PayMaya. 

Aside from empowering Intramuros with PayMaya QR for ticket sales in sites and museums, the Intramuros Administration is also utilizing PayMaya's digital invoicing solution, allowing them to accept card (Visa, Mastercard, and JCB) and PayMaya for online payments meant for rental payments of merchants, permits, and other similar transactions.

These are efforts to re-ignite domestic tourism and boost the recovery of the local economy even if the said areas only have limited-capacity to the public at the moment.

Apart from Intramuros, DOT has been promoting various local tourist destinations such as Boracay, Bohol, and Palawan for domestic travelers in order to re-ignite interest in local tourism sites. This is a sector heavily hit by the COVID-19 pandemic.

PayMaya has also enabled government agencies such as the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) and the Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zone Authority (TIEZA), as well as local tour operators and travel agencies, to accept cashless payments from local tourists and visitors.
