With the holiday rush, I'd prefer to accomplish half of my tasks from home and not risk getting stuck in traffic.
For someone who is not used to credit cards, I am glad that we now have #SmartPayMaya. You can now spend your existing money on online purchases that only accepts MasterCard mode of payment!
Through the Smart Mastercard, you also get 10% discount on prepaid loads, buy items online wherever MasterCard is accepted, do online bills payment (Smart, Sun, PLDT, Maynilad, Cignal, Meralco, and a host of other bills), transfer funds, and enjoy exclusive perks and discounts.
Just recently, I have a backpack craze and was on the look out for a large Anello in black leather. You can only buy this abroad or in some online stores (usually sold out), but through @artsyava's tip, I learned that ZALORA also carries the exact design that I wanted.
One of the modes of payment ZALORA accepts is PayMaya. You can download PayMaya app on your Android or iOS phones, and register with your Smart, TNT, or Sun mobile number. Subscribers will be able to instantly get a virtual prepaid Smart MasterCard which you can load up at PayMaya load-up centers (Smart Stores, SM Malls Business Centers, Robinson's Department Stores, UnionBank ATMs, 7-Eleven stores with Cliqq Kiosks, TouchPay Kiosks, and Smart Padala Centers, on top of online banking via BDO and UnionBank) and use in more than 36 million merchants worldwide that accept MasterCard.
“With a vast majority of ‘uncarded’ Filipinos, many are still unable to experience the life-changing benefits that digital services offer today. With the Smart & PayMaya partnership, we aim to once again help our customers break barriers and experience new ways of transacting and engaging," said Katrina Luna Abelarde, Wireless Consumer Operations Head at Smart.
"We are happy to join forces with Smart, the leader in mobile, so their subscribers can get more out of their purchases through the virtual prepaid Smart MasterCard. With Smart's reach and 'nationwidest' presence, we can all, in turn, help bring the many benefits of digital payments to more Filipinos," said Kenneth Palacios, Director and Vice President for International Platforms at PayMaya Philippines.
Closing my purchase at ZALORA! Btw, get Php 400 discount in ZALORA for every Php 2000 purchase with the promo code SMARTPAY!
With the PayMaya app, users will be able to instantly see a list of all their transactions and manage their usage. At the same time, they will receive timely SMS notifications each time they use their virtual prepaid Smart MasterCard anywhere!
Finally received my Anello from ZALORA! Wooot! Excited to overuse this!
