PayMaya Says "Don't Pay Cash, PayMaya!"

Monday, October 07, 2019

Coffee in the morning even started with PayMaya!

Is it even possible to spend a whole day without dishing out cash off your wallet? It is! PayMaya had us do that a couple days ago when they launched their new campaign, "Don't pay cash, PayMaya!" at the Eattogethet Food Hall in Capitol Commons in Pasig City.

Going there, I had to flag a Grab car and use my upgraded PayMaya Card for my transportation. Since it is postpaid and a Visa card, you can have it added as a secondary card in Grab's app. All transactions come with alerts via SMS and is listed on your transactions tab on the PayMaya App. Oh and before I forget, make sure you download the PayMaya app now because it's got tons of features which were not available previously. We obviously needed dinner so in this joint, PayMaya got us to simply use the app and pay via the QR code of each establishment.

Each of the store in Eattogether had these LCD terminals where you can choose what food you want to order and how much. After placing the order, you can either use the QR Code displayed or insert your card into this machine, get verified and voila! Just wait for your order to be completed.

My dinner comprised of these yummy hotpot ingredients which was sold by the gram. I didn't hold back and loved the cheese meatball and the saté broth it was going to be in. I put chilies on mine because I like it spicy.

After it was weighed, I just waited for the price and scanned the QR code on this counter. They prepared it and I just sat in the counter, it only took a couple minutes tops. I had a filling main course, dessert, plus tons of drinks later on the evening. 

After witnessing a crowd of over a hundred that night, I thought it was going to be hard to order but no, it was just faster with the PayMaya process and boy oh boy, it was convenient, even had cash back as rewards. This is what PayMaya envisioned as a cashless day. It's why they want you to also get acquainted with their latest campaign, to "Don't Pay Cash, PayMaya!"

I did even have my Grab Car home using the PayMaya card. It is possible to be cashless after all!
