Smart Padala by PayMaya, which is touted as the country’s largest mobile domestic remittance network, is intensifying its push to provide more digital financial services to the countryside as it launches its flagship stores that act as “digital hubs” across the country.
To date, Smart Padala by PayMaya has transformed its centers into digital hubs that are not only capable of processing sending and receiving remittance transactions, but also bills payment, PayMaya Add Money transactions, as well as mobile prepaid reloading services. Soon, these centers will also be able to accept PayMaya QR as a mode of payment for day-to-day purchases of customers.
The flagship stores also sport a fresh new look, complete with a dedicated area for customer transactions, instructional materials on Smart Padala’s services, and branded signages.
“Smart Padala by PayMaya centers all around the country provide crucial digital financial services to Filipinos where the traditional banking system are unable to reach them. We are excited to bring even more services to our customers as we continue to digitize and bring the ‘Padalapit lang’ experience that our customers have come to know over the years,” said Shailesh Baidwan, president of PayMaya.
With these hubs in place, Filipinos no longer need to commute to the city center to pay their bills, send or receive money, buy load, or even add money to their PayMaya accounts — they simply have to go to the sari-sari store or Smart Padala center nearest to them.
These Smart Padala flagship stores, currently located in Quezon Province, Pangasinan, Baguio, Bicol Region, Cebu, Aklan, Cagayan De Oro, Bukidnon and Metro Manila, were launched with exclusive promos and fun games for customers.
With more than 27,000 Smart Padala agents in the Philippines, Smart Padala has become household name for domestic remittance among customers, and a viable source of income for micro and small entrepreneurs in every corner of the country.
Starting a Smart Padala by PayMaya business for aspiring entrepreneurs is also easy because there is no franchise fee required. Once complete business requirements have been submitted, the Smart Padala store can be built and operated in less than a week.
