[8 JANUARY 2021] PayMaya continued to assert its leadership in digital payments processing for the fuel retail sector, adding Unioil recently to its roster of name partners. More than 70 Unioil gasoline stations across Luzon are being equipped with the widest range of contactless options for card and eWallet payments powered by PayMaya.
Through the partnership, Unioil can now utilize the PayMaya One terminal to accept credit, debit, and prepaid card payment options for VISA, Mastercard, and JCB cardholders, as well as emerging payment options such as PayMaya QR, WeChat Pay, and GrabPay.
PayMaya is currently the leading payment company in the Philippines with the widest deployment of Android-based POS terminals in the Philippines, with its PayMaya One device being adopted by major supermarkets, restaurants, service providers, and government agencies across the country.
“We’ve been doing our part to progress responsibly in the New Normal, and our partnership with PayMaya plays an important role in providing safer and more convenient payment transactions for both our customers and frontliners,” said Eduardo C. Pasion, Unioil Vice President for Retail. "By allowing us to offer multiple digital payment options both for cards and eWallet apps, we are able to serve our customers with the ease and safety that is necessary during this time."
A pioneer in offering innovative petroleum solutions, Unioil is a leading-edge partner for specialty oils, fuels and lubricants since 1966. Unioil is the only gasoline station in the country that offers all Euro5 in all its fuel line. All gasoline variants contain very low sulfur content of only 10ppm which is 5x cleaner than Euro4 gasoline fuels. It provides cleaner emissions for cleaner air and a healthier environment.
“Unioil made a strategic move in implementing the PayMaya One device across their branches as it caters to any form of cashless payments from motorists and at the same time, provides cashless convenience to its frontliners. More and more motorists are expected to use contactless payments as the government pushes for safer payment methods especially in the public transportation sector,” PayMaya President Shailesh Baidwan said.
To curb the spread of the COVID-19 disease, the Department of Transportation (DOTr) and the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) has mandated public transport operators to adopt cashless payments such as PayMaya. This development allows drivers and operators of public vehicles to access a digital financial account that they can use for cashless or contactless transactions as well as additional livelihood opportunities.
As Unioil and PayMaya team up to promote cashless payments, both frontline staff and customers can also practice safety and health measures by avoiding cash transactions while experiencing payment convenience. The PayMaya One terminal is wireless and ATEX-certified, providing motorists a safe and seamless way to settle their payments as they don’t have to leave their vehicles to enter their PIN for their payment.
