Make your move rather than just check out airlines’ Facebook pages regularly. Travel to your own dream paradise. Be able to cross out ideal getaway places included in your bucket list without having to pay using a credit card. PayMaya is one of the real deals! The newest digital payments solution brought to you by Smart eMoney, Inc., PayMaya is the first reloadable virtual Visa card in the Philippines that grants anyone the opportunity to book flights and pay for accommodations online in the easiest way possible. Yes, anyone can purchase airline tickets and reserve hotel rooms using the PayMaya Visa card.

PayMaya removes that barrier when sometimes you want to book flights online but the payment method only applicable is through a credit card. It definitely widens your travel opportunities!

You might just ask. “It’s reloadable, but how does it work?”

First thing you need to understand is that PayMaya is an app. Download the PayMaya mobile app either on Google Play Store or App Store and register using your mobile number. Your own PayMaya virtual Visa will then be instantly generated by the app for immediate reloading and use. Then, you can go ahead and purchase your airline ticket and hotel booking online through the checkout or payment page.

Secondly, PayMaya removes the hassle of physically showing up just to pay over-the-counter whether in banks, malls, and other outlets. These payment centers have operating hours for accepting payments of which the lack of flexibility becomes stressful for employees and employers who take the grind every day for 8 hours. Now, everyone who book online get to experience that end-of-the-day deadline of payments.

The hassle with it is when you forget to pay or, from lack of time, didn’t get to have that chance to pay. So you’d be reserving once more, but there’s that poor chance of getting the booking date you reserved one day ago. You see, there’s the inconvenience brought about by lining up at over-the-counter payment outlets which could also lead to some misses in surprise, random seat sales. Why not just pay directly instead of queuing? But then again, you don’t have a credit card or if you have one, it’s already expired. This is where PayMaya comes in. You load up your virtual Visa card and pay directly.

Now, you might just say that you already have other online payment methods to apply. Well, if you’re an AirBnB user, PayMaya is definitely all that you need. With PayMaya, you can “Belong Anywhere” with Airbnb.
