You Can Now Pay For 550 Billers Using the PayMaya App!

Before I discovered PayMaya, I went to service providers and business centers just to settle my bills. It was such a waste of time preparing cash, going out of my way, and standing in line just to pay a bill. With PayMaya, I can just open my smartphone and settle them anytime, anywhere. Lately, I’ve been paying them in the middle of the night, when I’d suddenly remember I have an outstanding payment. There’s also the cashback you can get when you make transactions on PayMaya.

Filipinos can now settle payments at over 550 billers using the PayMaya app, the most number and widest range of billers offered by a Philippine e-wallet to date – enabling consumers with a safer, more convenient, and more rewarding way to pay.

WATCH: Grab Gives Surprise Deliveries for Riders in This Touching Video

One of my favorite apps is Grab. Apart from the convenience, I love how friendly the delivery riders are. I’ve had packages delivered from Quezon City, Mandaluyong, even Malabon, and they all arrived down south with a warm greeting and virtually zero complaints.

Delivery riders truly are heroes during the pandemic: as we stay comfortable indoors, they brave traffic, heat, rain, and long distances just to make sure we get our food, groceries, and packages. To thank all that they do, Grab gave a few of them surprise deliveries from GrabMart. As expected, it’s touching and emotional.

LOOK: Google Uses Poetry and Animation to Teach Digital Responsibility

The internet is a wild place. I love how I can use it to learn new things, express my creativity, and stay in touch with my loved ones. It can be scary, too. Trolls and fake news abound, and there’s always a new form of kalat every day. It’s a double-edged sword.

Recently, Google launched a collection of spoken word poetry and animated videos on its local YouTube channel. It aims to teach digital responsibility and help Filipinos be better netizens and stewards of the internet. The content is developed by the youth volunteers of Teach Peace Build Peace Movement (TPBPM), an NGO which aims to build peace online and in vulnerable communities nationwide.

LOOK: You Can Now Buy Food, Groceries, Medicine, and More at the PayMaya Mall!

The pandemic surely has taught me how to shop online. Since the lockdown, I’ve had every imaginable thing delivered, from food to clothes, books, medicine, cleaning supplies, and even bigas. With everything available online and in apps, I’ve found little reason to step out of my home. In fact, I can count on the fingers of both hands the number of times I stepped out since the lockdown was imposed last March.

Now, it’s even easier to shop online because PayMaya launched its PayMaya Mall. On the app, you can shop for food, groceries,  medicine, and more. It’s even better because you can even pay cashless using your PayMaya wallet!

LOOK: This App Lets You Book Appointments at Your Fave Salons, Spas, and Skincare Clinics

With the new normal in place, it’s hard to just go to your favorite salons, spas, and skincare clinics without setting an appointment. I’m much more comfortable reserving a slot, since it signals that these establishments are careful about the number of people they let in at any given time. Plus points if I can do it online or via an app without speaking to a person.

Thankfully, this is becoming part of the new normal with apps that let you do exactly that. The latest is the Zoi Lifestyle app, which lets you book appointments with salons, spas, skincare clinics, and the like. Think of it as the wellness version of foodpanda and Grab.
