Shop Until You Drop with QR Scan to Pay

PayMaya is one of the industry Game Changers when it comes to digital payments. Now, it is making holiday shopping easier with the PayMaya Quick Response Scan to pay technology. With the PayMaya QR Scan, you can now scan to pay any of your transactions using the PayMaya App.

Can you imagine the queue at most ATM machines especially during holidays? Apart from the long queue, I find it also very risky to bring to much cash. But the good things is that PayMaya now has cashless transaction options using the PayMaya QR code payments.

In partnership with SM Malls, Robinsons and Mini Stop, Each PayMaya user only needs a PayMaya app, scan the item’s QR code, and pay for the purchase at any QR Scan to Pay enabled cashier counter.

What is PayMaya QR?

PayMaya QR is a technology that can enable you to purchase goods and services by just simply scanning the merchant’s QR code using the PayMaya app. The QR code is a two-dimensional barcode that can be read by smartphones. It is a simpler and safer way for you to pay instead of manually entering the merchant’s data into your mobile phone.

Upon scanning, you can see the account details of the merchant and you can complete the purchase by sending the payment to the PayMaya merchant from your PayMaya wallet.

Testing the PayMaya QR Scan to Purchase

It was my last day in Manila and I had to buy all the things I need to bring to my province for the Christmas Break. With only PHP500 in my wallet, I was able to shop for quality pillows worth almost PHP 5,000. Here’s how.

My client, who is also a PayMaya user, sent me PHP5,000 on my PayMaya account. I first thought of withdrawing my money in an ATM, but the queue is too long. So I decided to go to the department store and check whether the cashier can process the Scan to Pay option.
