PayMaya in Messenger

Who thinks going cashless is awesome? I do. Receiving money and sending money, paying bills, checking on your account, and shopping (of course) with just the click of a button is convenient and stress-free. And the one thing I buy almost everyday with just my virtual card is load. The virtual card I use for this PayMaya. Luckily for me, we now have PayMaya in Messenger.

PayMaya in Messenger makes it easier for me to buy load since I don’t have to log in to my PayMaya app anymore to accomplish this simple task.

PayMaya in Messenger

Check out this short demo video I made on How I bought Load using PayMaya in Messenger.

Note that I did this off the bat, without practice and without doing any second takes. Filmed while doing the PayMaya connection and the buying of the load. #TrueStory

Here are the steps:

  1. Connect your PayMaya Account to Messenger.
  2. Confirm account connection.
  3. Click “Buy Load.”
  4. Choose the amount of load you’re buying.
  5. Confirm.

Easy, right?

Give 50, Earn 50 via PayMaya in Messenger

Here’s another great news from PayMaya. You can earn P50 for every friend you refer to open PayMaya in Messenger. And your friend gets P50, as well. You can buy load or an app with the money you earn.

Check out the complete Promo Mechanics.
The promo is open to all PayMaya customers who have their accounts linked to the Messenger app. Promo period is from December 6 to 19, 2017.

How to refer and earn:

  1. Access your PayMaya account in Messenger by visiting this link:
  2. Click on the promo notification and share the promo message to your Messenger contacts (open to both Smart and Globe subscribers).
  3. Alternatively, you can also click on “Promos” in the menu and select “Refer Friends, Get P50” to access the promo message which you can share to your friends.
  4. Each time a friend successfully opens or links a PayMaya account in Messenger, you (sender) will get P50 in your PayMaya account. Your friend (receiver), in return, will also receive P50 in his/her PayMaya account.
  5. Users can only share the promo message to up to 25 friends, and can then earn a maximum of P1,250 worth of incentives (maximum of 25 successful referrals only).
  6. Rewards will be credited to both the sender and receiver within one to three business days after the PayMaya account has been created/linked.
