[11 FEBRUARY 2021] Digital financial services leader PayMaya is offering another fintech-first in the Philippines with the launch of the PayMaya Mall, the latest feature in the PayMaya app that offers a one-stop-shop experience with the biggest and most trusted merchant partners.
Through PayMaya Mall, mobile shoppers can check out and buy from over 100 merchants accepting PayMaya as a payment method - all within the PayMaya app, an experience that is akin to browsing shops and merchant stalls in physical malls.
Among the biggest brands in the food, retail, pharmacy, grocery, and fashion industries that are already present in the PayMaya Mall are Jollibee, McDonald's, Goldilocks, Rustans, Park Outlet, Mercury Drug, Rose Pharmacy, Landers, All Home, and Boozy. More brands are coming soon as PayMaya taps into its network of over 116,000 merchant touchpoints.
“Mall shopping is so ingrained in Filipino popular culture and the COVID-19 pandemic has drastically affected not just consumers but also, the growth of retail merchants. With the PayMaya Mall feature embedded in our app, we aim to reinforce our commitment to boost e-Commerce and digital payments in the Philippines, supported by the full force and strength of our unique ecosystem,” said Shailesh Baidwan, President of PayMaya.
"With this initiative, we are bringing our partner merchants closer to our more than 28 million customers nationwide. Consumers, on the other hand, can get their regular shopping done from the convenience and safety of their own homes while enjoying exclusive perks and rewards -- all through the PayMaya app,” he added.
