END-TO-END ICT and digital solutions provider PLDT Enterprise, through its small and medium business group, PLDT SME Nation, recently partnered with the Association of Filipino Franchisor’s Inc. (AFFI) to introduce cashless transactions via the PayMaya QR code facility.
Established two decades ago, the AFFI is a non-profit organization that supports the growth of franchise businesses in the country by providing education, research and development assistance to micro, small and medium enterprises nationwide.
The partnership with AFFI is in line with PLDT SME Nation’s own vision of growing and empowering entrepreneurs in the Philippines through breakthrough technologies tailor-fit for their enterprises.
PayMaya benefits AFFI members by opening up another gateway of cashless payment for enterprises, overcoming their technological boundaries with telecommunication and digital solutions.
“With the PayMaya QR code facility, business owners may receive payments for items that cost as little as P20, without having to use any other payment hardware,” explains PayMaya chief operating officer and managing director Paolo Azzola. “This allows the business to reach a wider range of customers and reduces the risks associated with handling and managing cash.”
The PayMaya QR code facility is also not telco-specific.
“What’s great about the PayMaya facility is that all consumers can avail of this technology. True to our word at the PLDT Group, we want everyone to be connected and to experience safe, secure and convenient seamless payment transactions,” Azzola added. (PR)
