The two firms have earlier partnered for the deployment of PayMaya QR at Robinsons Galleria and Ministop.

As part of the expanded collaboration, PayMaya QR will now be available as a mode of payment for the following brands under the Robinsons Retail Holdings:

• Robinsons Department Store
• Robinsons Supermarket
• Robinsons Appliances
• Robinsons Builders
• True Value
• True Home
• Handyman
• Toys ‘R Us
• Topshop
• Topman
• Dorothy Perkins
• Burton Menswear
• Miss Selfridge
• Warehouse
• G2000
• Daiso Japan,
• Southstar Drug
• The Generics Pharmacy
• Ministop

Customers of these brands can just scan the QR code displayed at cashier counters with their PayMaya app. Merchants, on the other hand, can now expect shorter lines at counters because their personnel no longer have to count bills or coins for change in every transaction.

“The retail landscape is changing all around the world, and with it comes new and exciting experiences that we can offer our customers around the country,” said Johnson Go, general manager of Robinsons Department Store.

“We recognize the role that mobile technology plays in the lives of our loyal shoppers, which is why we have partnered with PayMaya to enable QR payments within the stores of our affiliate brands.”

PayMaya account holders will also get more offers whenever they make PayMaya QR transactions in the stores of participating brands from March 15 to June 15, 2018.

For starters, shoppers will get a 30% cashback (maximum of P500 per store per day) when they pay via PayMaya QR in Robinsons Department Store, Robinsons Appliances, Robinsons Builders, True Value, True Home, Handyman, Toys R Us, Daiso, and brands under Robinsons Store Specialists Inc. such as Topman, Topshop, Topman, Dorothy Perkins, Burton Menswear, Miss Selfridge, Warehouse, and G2000.

They can also get as much as 20% cashback (maximum of P300 per store per day) for their purchases via PayMaya QR in Robinsons Supermarket, Ministop, Southstar Drug, and The Generics Pharmacy.
