PayMaya Philippines Inc. has teamed up with the country’s three biggest supermarkets to accept cashless payments in their stores nationwide.
Landers, Rustans Supermarket and Shopwise join the growing list of PayMaya QR-enabled supermarkets, on top of an already expansive set of grocery partners that include Robinsons Supermarket, Robinsons Easymart, Robinsons Selections, Shopwise, Super8, Wellcome, LCC Supermarket, Metro Gaisano, Citimart Supermarket, WalterMart Supermarket, Budget Mart, South Emerald Supermarket and Prince Hypermart.
“We see the strong shift of consumers towards the use of digital payments when shopping for groceries. Our partner merchants are able to address this demand by offering PayMaya QR and other digital payment options,” said PayMaya president Shailesh Baidwan.
The latest data released by the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas from the study conducted by the United Nations-based Better Than Cash Alliance showed encouraging signs of growth for digital payments in the Philippines.
