Valentine’s Day is one of the most anticipated holidays for couples all over the world. While it really is a beautiful day to celebrate your love for your other half, it is also one of the days most dreaded by Filipino commuters as V-Day is always expected to generate heavy traffic throughout the metro.
To help spread the love and ease a bit of the traffic-induced stress on this day of love, PayMaya Philippines, aka the digital financial services arm of PLDT and Smart’s Voyager Innovations, offered a romantic treat to the busy commuters of the LRT 2.
The sound of the bustling train and the shuffling passengers were replaced by love songs fit for the special occasion. As commuters listened to the beautiful music rendered by the violinist, the papi executives of PayMaya Philippines and Voyager Innovations surprised commuters with long-stemmed roses.
“We know that commuting – especially on this day – can be a bit of a hassle. We’re happy to share some joy through this simple treat for our customers.” said Paolo Azzola, co-COO and Managing Director of PayMaya Philippines.
The executives also gave some lucky passengers their very own PayMaya card which is pretty much a reloadable e-wallet that allows consumers to shop for the things they love – including clothes, books, food, and even a ticket to their dream destination – even without a credit card. It also doubles as a nifty beep card, which definitely comes in handy for the everyday commuter.
The card can be used both online and offline. All the pvblic has to do is download the app, register, link the card, and load it up at the nearest 7-11 with Cliqq Kiosks, Ministop with Touchpay Kiosks, SM Business Centers, Robinson’s Department Stores, UnionBank ATMs, or Smart Padala Centers. You can also opt to load it up via BDO online banking.
“Similar to this Valentine’s surprise, our service, PayMaya, aims to offer a delightful experience to our users. Before, consumers have to apply for a credit card in order to shop or pay for the services they love online. And now, they can easily do all of these without having to go through the tiring and tedious process of getting a credit card,” shared Sharon Kayanan, Marketing and Brand Head, PayMaya Philippines.
