The local government of Marikina has tapped digital financial services leader PayMaya to roll out contactless payments for real property and other business taxes within the city.
Under this partnership, residents and companies can now pay their city government fees online from the comfort of their own homes, thanks to PayMaya’s payment portal.
How to do it?
Simply log in to Marikina’s online portal, which is operated by PayMaya Checkout, and pay with any credit, debit, or prepaid card, as well as their PayMaya wallet. This project is being carried out in partnership with the Philippine Development Bank (DBP).
“Through this cashless initiative with PayMaya and DBP, we are empowering our constituents with a safer way to pay for taxes and other fees online so that they don’t have to physically go to the city hall, especially at this time. This will contribute towards safer and more efficient government transactions during this pandemic. At the same time, this will allow us to continue delivering critical services to the public,” said Marikina City Mayor Marcelino Teodoro.
“We thank Marikina City for being our partner in enabling the public sector with safer cashless payment solutions. Digital payments is a key component of the transformation of our local governments and we are excited to bring this forward with other digital financial services ecosystem initiatives,” added PayMaya Founder and CEO Orlando Vea.
Marikina City is the most recent of more than 60 national agencies and local units to adopt PayMaya’s cashless solutions, which include cashless payment acceptance and disbursement solutions.
The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR), the Social Security System (SSS), the Home Development Mutual Fund or Pag-IBIG, the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the Land Transportation Office (LTO), the Bureau of Customs (BoC), and the Bureau of Customs (BoC) are among the national government agencies and local government units that have embraced cashless technologies driven by PayMaya’s platforms.
