To make public services more convenient for Filipinos, the Home Development Mutual Fund (Pag-IBIG) has partnered with PayMaya to provide an easier way to pay for savings and loan repayments anytime, anywhere.
Pag-IBIG Fund members can now pay their dues using any Visa, Mastercard, or JCB credit, debit, and prepaid card. PayMaya account holders can also pay using their mobile number linked to their e-wallet via Pag-IBIG Fund’s online portal.
Soon, Pag-IBIG branches will also be equipped with One by PayMaya. This point-of-sale (POS) device will enable the agency to accept multiple modes of cashless payments via swipe, tap, and dip for cards, and pay-to-scan via QR.
Cashless payment methods are not only convenient but also lessen cash handling for better security and efficiencies.
All these channels complement the existing bill payments channel in the PayMaya app that already allows for in-app payments.
“With this partnership, our members now have an even wider range of options whenever they need to transact with Pag-IBIG Fund. For those who don’t want to leave their homes or offices, they can pay conveniently online. Overseas Filipino Workers would also be able to have easier access to payment options through our website powered by PayMaya. This is our way of bringing our services one convenient step closer to Pag-IBIG Fund members, wherever they may be,” said Acmad Rizaldy P. Moti, Chief Executive Officer of Pag-IBIG Fund.
Customer convenience and government efficiencies
“We are glad that government agencies like Pag-IBIG Fund are embracing digital payment technologies to help bring convenience to all Filipinos,” said Orlando B. Vea, Founder and CEO of PayMaya Philippines. “We at PayMaya are proud to be the partner of Pag-IBIG in delivering more accessible public services, which is in line with our goal of digital and financial inclusion for the Philippines.”
The Pag-IBIG Fund-PayMaya partnership also helps the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas in achieving their goal of transforming 20% of transactions to digital by 2020.
