With this collaboration, PayMaya will power up the festival by equipping merchants with its QR-based payments.

In case you missed it, during the said festival, Session Road in Bloom is an annual event that transformed the place into a busy market. Through this partnership, all of the stalls will be powered by PayMaya QR to offer a more convenient transaction.

BFFFI also expressed that PayMaya will assure consumers with much faster and secure payments as all stalls now offer QR payment method.

“The city government of Baguio and its people welcome PayMaya QR in our city, particularly during this year’s Panagbenga Festival,” Baguio City Mayor Mauricio Domogan addressed. “Problems pertaining to handling of cash such as consumers being a victim of criminal activities will be minimized if not eradicated. Business owners will also be able to closely monitor all the payment transactions in his or her business.”

“We at PayMaya are excited to power the participating merchants of Panagbenga Festival 2019, the first cashless festival in the country. This is part of our overall initiative to accelerate cashless ecosystems nationwide. After this, we hope to attract and encourage more merchants and consumers in Baguio City to be part of the cashless movement,” PayMaya Channel Head for Domestic Business Butch Conejos Jr. said.

Moreover, this partnership allows festival-goers and Baguio residents to have the chance to get as much as 100% cashback on their purchases. They only have to use PayMaya QR for a minimum of Php100 payment, and a maximum of Php1,000 in cashback per transaction.

“The end goal is to empower both merchants and consumers all over Baguio with digital payment solutions because going ‘cashless’ is more convenient, secure, and fast. Soon, more establishments, micro-merchants, and transportation providers in Baguio will begin accepting payments via PayMaya QR, making it a full-fledged cashless community,” Conejos added.
