Last month, PayMaya announced its collaboration with Department of Transportation and LTFRB, which allows commuters to now go cashless and contactless for a safer on-the-road experience. This September, the digital financial services leader solidifies that cashless payments are now the default in Government by announcing new partnerships with over 50 government agencies and local government units (LGUs).
You can now pay your government fees online with your PayMaya number for contactless and safe settlements. Transactions such as paying taxes, remitting pension dues, and applying for business registration are some of the day-to-day government transactions Filipinos can safely and conveniently do from wherever they are.
More than 50 government agencies and LGUs are already accepting card and e-Wallet payments for various transactions, such as the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR), the Social Security System (SSS), the PAG-IBIG Fund, the Bureau of Customs (BOC), the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC), and the National Home Mortgage Finance Corporation (NHMFC), City of Valenzuela, Ormoc City, and Parañaque City.
In addition, Land Transportation Office (LTO), the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the City of Taguig, the Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines (IPOPHL), and the Optical Media Board (OMB) are now included in PayMaya’s growing lineup of government partners that will be accepting cashless payments.
Safe, Transparent Government Transactions
Paymaya Chief Executive Officer and Founder Orlando B. Vea shared in the virtual press conference that they are working double time to help partner government agencies go digital and cashless. Digital is now the default to limit unnecessary contact during the pandemic, aside from making transactions transparent, cashless, and efficient.

“By going digital and offering cashless payment options, the government is helping address our two most pressing issues today: ensuring the safety of all citizens and helping in the recovery of the economy. We at PayMaya are always excited to partner with agencies and LGUs to offer our solutions to enable them to offer better and more transparent services to the public,” said the CEO.
In June, PayMaya reported a 900% year-on-year increase on payments to government as it onboarded more agency and LGU partners and actively encouraged the use of cashless payments for paying government fees.
During the virtual press conference, PayMaya’s partner government agencies shared how going digital has helped their operations:
- With tax payments now available in the PayMaya app, the BIR is able to continue collecting taxes from consumers and businesses despite the quarantine restrictions around the country in the past month.
- Through the SSS mobile app, members here and abroad can use their PayMaya account or credit and debit cards to remit their monthly contributions, and even receive their funeral and other benefit proceeds using their PayMaya account.
- Members of the PAG-IBIG fund can continue remitting contribution payments and even top up savings accounts using card and e-Wallet payments even if they are abroad.
- Car dealers and motorists can soon easily pay for motor vehicle registration and renewal fees using cashless means at the Land Transportation Office website.
