Guide: Give the Gift of PayMaya This Christmas

One of the long-standing traditions when Christmas comes around in the Philippines is the giving of “aguinaldo” by uncles or aunts to their nieces or nephews. Every Christmas season, older members of the family/clan withdraw and carry a bit of cash in varying denominations, bringing them to family gatherings ready to gift them to their younger kin. 

This Christmas, PayMaya wants to make it easier and safer for people to give out their “aguinaldos” by using the service. With PayMaya, uncles and aunts will only need to carry their smartphones with them rather than envelopes of cash.

Additionally, PayMaya is also giving back PHP 10 for every “aguinaldo” sent (with a minimum of PHP 200 sent) and an additional PHP 100 cashback when a total accumulated amount of PHP 10,000 has been sent.

If you’re not familiar with how sending money, or in this case “aguinaldos,” with PayMaya works, we’ve created a quick guide for you to follow:

1. Open the PayMaya app and go to Send Money.

2. Fill up the PayMaya mobile number of the recipient along with the amount to be sent (the minimum for the PHP 10 cashback is PHP 200) and hit Send.

3. You will receive an SMS confirming your transaction and another SMS informing you of your PHP 10 cashback.

You can get up to a total of PHP 100 cashback (PHP 10 per day) for sending your “aguinaldos” via PayMaya and an additional PHP 1000 cashback with an accumulated total of PHP 10,000 sent. More details on the promotion can be found at
