Today, PayMaya and GCash, in partnership with Facebook, announced an easy new way for people to send money to friends, pay bills, and buy mobile data using Messenger.

 

People in the Philippines regularly connect with friends and family to send money and pay bills. However, according to the World Bank, less than one-third of Filipinos currently have an account for financial transactions. As one of the most popular messaging apps in the Philippines, Messenger offers an easy way for people to create a new account for daily transactions. PayMaya and GCash transactions are supervised by the Central Bank of the Philippines.

 

People can:

  • Easily send money to friends anywhere in the Philippines: Just tap on a Messenger contact to send money for school or to support family. No need to have your friend’s phone number or bank routing number, and no amount is too small. This feature is currently available via PayMaya and will be available soon from Gcash.
  • Avoid the lines at the utility company and securely pay bills: Pay from your balance or drop off funds at a local Smart Padala, or Globe, Robinsons, or Tambunting store. Payments are posted on the same day, and you’ll receive a digital confirmation. No need to spend time and money travelling to pay bills.
  • Save when you top up: Buy discounted load for your phone anytime, anywhere, directly in Messenger. It’s as easy as chatting.

 

To get started today, search for PayMayaOfficial or GCashOfficial in the Messenger app on Android. PayMaya and GCash handle the transactions and fees may apply.
