To ensure safety within the marketplace in Divisoria and promote efficiency for all concerned vendors, the City of Manila and PayMaya together deployed contactless payments via PayMaya QR to the newly launched vendor stalls provided by the city government.

Customers can now enjoy safe vendor shopping at the “cashless stalls” located near the Manila City Hall and in Divisoria, in which consumers and merchants alike can prevent themselves from contracting the COVID-19 and promote public safety on the streets.

And to further strengthen its cashless ecosystem, Manila also launched around 90 new vendor stalls equipped with PayMaya QR in preparation to restart the local economy forward.

“Manila City is one of the LGUs that are leading the way in digitalization. We are proud to be a partner in the city’s digitalization efforts,” said PayMaya Founder and CEO Orlando Vea.
