PayMaya Sulong Negosyo Provides Cashless Solutions and Extra Income to MSME

Did you know that an estimated 90,000 businesses remain closed and over 200,000 workers have permanently lost their jobs as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, many of them belong to the MSME sector. However, Filipinos are known to have a strong determination. A lot of them have started a micro business during the pandemic.

As the Philippines charts its path toward economic recovery, digital financial services leader PayMaya is providing full support to micro-, small-, and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) across the country to accelerate their transition to e-Commerce with the help of digital and cashless technology. Through a campaign entitled "Sulong Negosyo" launched on October 7, PayMaya announced product, programs, and partnership support worth up to P60 million to help jumpstart the recovery and growth of MSMEs in the country aided by cashless and contactless payments.

"MSMEs form a critical sector in our country’s recovery from the current crisis. With all businesses compelled to to go digital, MSMEs should not be left behind. 'Sulong Negosyo' is our rallying action to enable MSMEs with cashless technologies," said Orlando B. Vea, Founder and CEO of PayMaya.

With cashless fast becoming the default choice for payment among consumers, providing our MSMEs with the ability to accept all types of cashless payments, whether online or in their physical stores, will hasten their cash flow and also promote public health safety. 

Cashless products to digitally fuel MSMEs

"Even as the economy reopens, online, cashless, and contactless transactions are here to stay as customers choose convenience and safety. The next phase of commerce will be digitally-fueled, so equipping MSMEs with the right tools and payment options in order to succeed in this new era is one of our main priorities at PayMaya," said Raymund Villanueva, Business Head for QR Ecosystems at PayMaya.

PayMaya Negosyante Reward

PayMaya is providing various cashless payment tools for MSMEs such as:

PayMaya QR codes that can easily be shared via social media or chat apps, or displayed for face-to-face transactions, allowing sellers to receive instant payments from PayMaya users. 

PayMaya Payment Links help MSMEs that do not have established e-Commerce stores by allowing them to generate links which they can send to their customers for payment. Once clicked, customers will be led to their own PayMaya payment page where they can pay using their PayMaya account or Visa, Mastercard, and JCB credit or debit cards.

PayMaya Checkout Plugins are for MSMEs operating online stores powered by Shopify, Magento, or WooCommerce that allows for quick and easier integration of the PayMaya Checkout payment gateway without the need for advanced coding knowledge or experience.

MSMEs interested in these solutions can easily sign up and upload their requirements by using the new PayMaya Business Manager at or by downloading the PayMaya Negosyo app from the Google Play Store.

Rewarding entrepreneurship

To help encourage more MSMEs to go digital and cashless, PayMaya has also launched its "PayMaya Negosyante Rewards" program, providing benefits to members such as:

Exclusive rewards to merchants whenever they accept cashless payments through various PayMaya products and solutions

Free advertisements and marketing tools to help promote their products and services online through PayMaya's various digital properties and within the PayMaya app

Free livelihood trainings and online courses with industry experts to help them gain business and digital skills to prepare them for the New Normal.

Aside from this, MSMEs can also augment their income by operating as a Smart Padala/PayMaya Negosyo agent in their physical stores, where they can process remittances, accept bills payments, and sell mobile prepaid load, among others.
