PayMaya has been making it easier for gamers to purchase games on platforms like Steam or pay for online game subscriptions like Final Fantasy XIV for a long time. And the company is showing its support for gamers even further with their partnership with The Nationals, the country’s first franchise-based esports league, as its official digital payments partner.
As the official digital payments partner of The Nationals, all the players competing in the league’s first Mobile Legends: Bang Bang conference have all been given their own PayMaya accounts as well as PayMaya cards. The winnings of the participating teams will then be received through their respective PayMaya accounts.
PayMaya has also launched a promo, which runs until July 31, 2019, which gives PayMaya users a 10% discount for purchasing Mobile Legends pins within the PayMaya in-app shop. Those who purchase pins within the in-app shop may also get up to 100% cashback when a user spends at least PHP 100.
PayMaya Philippines Director and Head of Growth and Marketing Raymund Villanueva said in a statement:
“It’s never been this easy and seamless to power up your gaming experience with PayMaya. Whether you’re a casual gamer or a professional esports player like the teams in The Nationals, it’s easy to purchase power-ups and upgrade your gaming experience with PayMaya. We’re excited with our partnership with The Nationals and we are looking forward to helping grow the local gaming community as well as the esports landscape in the Philippines, so watch out for other things we have in store in the coming months.”
The Nationals Commissioner had this to say as well:
“As esports continues to flourish in the Philippines, we’re excited that PayMaya, a homegrown digital payments company, is invested in supporting homegrown talents in the gaming scene. Our esports athletes are brimming with so much potential and having PayMaya with us in this journey is definitely a big boost, not just for the athletes, but for the entire gaming community.”
The Mobile Legends discount promo will last until July 31, 2019. More information can be found on the official website.
