It’s a scene familiar to all of us—you arrive home tired after a long day’s work and being stuck in Manila traffic and decide to order your dinner online. When the delivery rider rings your doorbell, you open your wallet and find zero cash, and the nearest ATM is not even within your proximity.

Now, you can order and pay from foodpanda’s over 1,000 partner restaurants with PayMaya!

After placing your orders on www.foodpanda.ph or the foodpanda mobile app, you can choose to pay online or in-app using the PayMaya instant virtual Visa or upon delivery via PayMaya Swipe with the physical PayMaya Visa card.

Launched just this August by Smart e-Money, Inc., the digital financial services unit of PLDT and Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart), PayMaya offers both consumers and enterprises new digital payment solutions and is particularly meant to serve Filipinos who do not own a credit card or do not wish to go through the hassle of applying for one.

“Previously, the only payment options for food delivery were either via cash-on-delivery or online credit card payments. We are happy that foodpanda has chosen to work with us to open its doors to more users who wish to experience the digital side of food delivery shopping,” said Smart e-Money Co-Chief Operating Office Paolo Azzola.

foodpanda is above all excited about providing a new means for its customers to use the food delivery service.

“With convenience as one of foodpanda’s pillars, having PayMaya as our latest payment gateway is a move towards optimizing the customer experience even further. Now, there is practically no barrier to ordering one’s favorite food online,” said foodpanda Philippines Co-Founder and CEO Mauro Cocchieri.

Customers can download the PayMaya mobile app through the App Store or Google Play Store to immediately get their own virtual Visa for online payments and shopping. Upon registration, the mobile app generated a 16-digit virtual Visa card that comes with its own CCV number. The account can be loaded through Smart Money, BDO online banking or through over 15,000 reloading stations including 7-Eleven convenience stores, SM Supermalls Business Centers, Robinsons Department Stores Business Centers, Smart Padala Centers and Smart Stores.

Users who upgrade their account can also opt to have a personalized physical Visa card which can be used to shop in any store accepting Visa worldwide.

Customers with credit, debit or other prepaid cards issued by Visa or MasterCard can also pay for their foodpanda orders upon delivery using PayMaya Swipe, an enterprise solution that comes with a small device that can transform any smartphone into a payment terminal. One must simply swipe his or her card on the terminal provided by the delivery rider and affix his or her e-signature on the screen for confirmation. Receipts are issued via SMS or e-mail.
