Starting today, PayMaya users can start receiving Western Union remittances via PayMaya application! If you usually receive money from friends,  family, employers and business partners via Western Union, there is now a far more convenient way to get it! Using PayMaya mobile Wallet, your smartphone is now your new “Western Union Agent”. All it takes is to download the app, upgrade your account (for first-time users only), click “Add Money” and select Western Union in the list. Unlike other partners of PayMaya, Western Union requires the usual MTCN provided by the money send to proceed with the transaction. Money will then be received in a few minutes! Hold your horses though. There is a limit to the amount of money to be received: USD 500 per transaction or USD 1,500 per day, or up to a maximum of PayMaya wallet capacity of USD 2,000. In a statement given by Bassem…

While prayers and thoughts of love and affection are among the best gestures this Christmas, giving something to buy tangible gifts can definitely put a smile to their faces.

78% of our readers at Gadget Pilipinas is part of the millennial generation. 35% of our country is part of a generational group that’s 15-34. It is also the generation, which is often negatively stereotyped: impatient, entitled, “narcissistic”, etc. Why is it that the generation that is expected to propel the country’s workforce and the economy seemed to have such negative dispositions and values? Are we soon going the lead by a generation that only think of themselves? This same stereotype and myths are being challenged by the country’s forward-looking fintech, PayMaya, through their latest #NowNation campaign. The latter, which they aptly called “Millennials Beyond the Selfie” has a specific goal of dispelling the negative connotations about the said generation, and eventually uplift and empower the young Filipinos in order to unwillingly passion their passions while helping the country. According to PayMaya Philippines co-COO Benjie S. Fernandez, “Millennials are often…

A week ago, my wife and I went to a trip to Tokyo to celebrate my birthday. Many considered as mecca of technology, my wife and thought that it would be fitting for me to drop by the electric town, Akihabara; Ginza; Odaiba; and Shinjuku. While we both decided to change our US dollars to Japanese Yen, I also tried using PayMaya. I reloaded my PayMaya with credits, and spent a little over 45,000 Yen in Tokyo. Most of the shops we went to accepted my PayMaya; and each time I used it, I always got updates via SMS and PayMaya app of the amount I spent. It was fast and convenient. Recently, PayMaya announced that one lucky PayMaya user will win an all-expense-paid trip in Bali in March, and Osaka and Kyoto in April. Prize includes roundtrip airfare and accommodation for four, and PhP50,000 pocket money. That’s more than enough…
