The country's biggest supermarkets have tied up with digital financial services platform PayMaya, as Filipino consumers increasingly adopt digital payments for a more convenient and rewarding grocery shopping experience.
Landers, Rustans Supermarket, and Shopwise join the growing list of PayMaya QR-enabled supermarkets, on top of an already expansive set of grocery partners that includes Robinsons Supermarket, Robinsons Easymart, Robinsons Selections, Shopwise, Super8, Wellcome, LCC Supermarket, Metro Gaisano, Citimart Supermarket, WalterMart Supermarket, Budget Mart, South Emerald Supermarket, Prince Hypermart, and many more.
''We see the strong shift of consumers towards the use of digital payments when shopping for groceries. Our partner merchants are able to address this demand by offering PayMaya QR and other digital payment options,'' said PayMaya President Shailesh Baidwan.
The latest data released by the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas from the study conducted by the United Nations-based Better Than Cash Alliance (BTCA) showed very encouraging signs of growth for digital payments in the Philippines. Digital transactions now comprise 20% in terms of value and 10% in terms of volume of all transactions in the country as of 2018, from just 10% and 1%, respectively, in 2013.
''On top of the convenience and regular promos, consumers also get better than cash rewards when they shop at our PayMaya Preferred Merchants. We are glad that many Filipinos are finding not just the convenience but also the joys of paying with PayMaya for their regular groceries, so do expect more supermarket partners to be onboarded in the coming months,'' Baidwan added.
PayMaya Preferred Partners are establishments where PayMaya customers can get additional perks and rewards each time they pay using PayMaya QR. In Landers Superstore, for example, shoppers can get as much as P2,500 cashback every month when they #ScanToPay using PayMaya QR as they can get a 5% cashback on each purchase regardless of the amount until April 20, 2020.
All of these perks come on top of the usual rewards they can get when they pay using PayMaya QR, where they can get as much as 100% cashback capped at P500 for every qualified transaction.
A more rewarding grocery experience
PayMaya has been empowering businesses such as groceries and supermarkets with cashless payment options that give customers a more convenient and rewarding way to pay. Aside from that, it also reduces the friction and risk of paying via cash because customers can pay for their purchases just by using their mobile phones.
Whether it is buying items for the household or preparing food for an upcoming party, grocery shoppers can take advantage of exclusive deals and valuable perks offered at select PayMaya Preferred grocery partners at the start of 2020.
Launched in December 2019, the PayMaya Preferred program aims to offer better than cash perks and experiences to all PayMaya users in partnership with merchants across different industries such as retail, gas, quick-service restaurants, and pharmacies. Customers can look forward to more rewards as PayMaya launches more PayMaya Preferred partners this year.
