PayMaya has inked a partnership with Marikina to roll out contactless payments for real property and other business taxes within the city. With the new partnership, in collaboration with the Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP), residents and business will be able to pay for their city government fees from the safety of their homes.
“Through this cashless initiative with PayMaya and DBP, we are empowering our constituents with a safer way to pay for taxes and other fees online so that they don’t have to physically go to the city hall, especially at this time. This will contribute towards safer and more efficient government transactions during this pandemic. At the same time, this will allow us to continue delivering critical services to the public,” said Marikina City Mayor Marcelino Teodoro.
“We thank Marikina City for being our partner in enabling the public sector with safer cashless payment solutions. Digital payments is a key component of the transformation of our local governments and we are excited to bring this forward with other digital financial services ecosystem initiatives,” added PayMaya Founder and CEO Orlando Vea.
Residents and businesses can log in to the Marikina City online portal, which is powered by PayMaya Checkout, and pay either using credit, debit, or prepaid cards as well as their PayMaya wallet. Marikina City is the latest in over 60 national agencies and local units that have partnered with PayMaya for cashless solutions, including cashless payment acceptance as well as disbursement solutions.
Other national government agencies and local government units that have utilized cashless technologies by PayMaya include the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR), Social Security System (SSS), Home Development Mutual Fund or Pag-IBIG, Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Land Transportation Office (LTO), Bureau of Customs (BoC), and the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), as well as the cities of Manila, Mandaluyong, Quezon City, Pasig, Caloocan, and Valenzuela, among many others.
