You can now @UseYourName to send and receive money with Maya!


With your very own Maya @username, a safer and more personal way to transfer and receive money has come.

Maya, your all-in-one digital bank, introduces a new game-changing feature that allows you to send and receive money using your own username – yet another first-of-its-kind feature from the country’s premier digital bank and fintech.

This provides you with more personalized, convenient, and secure money transfer choices. When asking for payments, you can utilize your @username in the same way you would tag your family/friends on social media – no need to memorize and enter 11-digit cell numbers. If you own a small business, you can utilize this option to effortlessly set up your store name as your account login for a simpler, hassle-free form of payment!

You may also use Maya’s username function to keep your personal information private, such as your account name and mobile number. This functionality is available to upgraded Maya app users, ensuring the Maya community has a secure experience.

“We’re excited to be the country’s first digital bank to launch this feature as we continue to help Filipinos master their money and enable meaningful personalization. It’s a game-changer for safety and making our experience with sending money more fun – especially when you attach a GIF to it!” said Pepe Torres, Chief Marketing Officer for Maya Philippines.  

Maya has also collaborated with Giphy to help you personalize your Send Money transactions. You can even include some GIF action in your send-money transaction to make it even more interesting! With over 10 billion GIFs to choose from, you’re sure to find one that perfectly expresses how you feel.

Setting up your Maya @username is easy. You simply need to:

  1. Tap the “Profile” icon on the upper-left corner and tap “Get Started.”
  2. Key in your preferred @username and hit “Confirm.”
  3. Finish off by keying in the One Time Password (OTP) sent via SMS.

Once you’ve registered your preferred @username, your friends can now use this to send money to your account with these easy steps:

  1. Tap “Send Money” on the Maya app
  2. Key in the recipient’s @username, input the amount to send, and tap “Continue.”
  3. Review the “Send Money” transaction details and tap “Send.”
  4. Wait for Maya’s confirmation via SMS.

A username is unique to each Maya account holder, so choose well! You can have the option to present your username or your mobile number registered to your Maya account whenever you want to receive money through Maya.

“Sending money via @username is just one of the innovative features which make money management with Maya more fun and rewarding. With up to 6% savings interest rate and free bitcoin or cashback offers, Maya is easily the most engaging and rewarding payments and banking platform for your money,” Torres added.
