PayMaya Philippines (formerly Smart e-Money, Inc.), the financial service arm of Smart and PLDT, launched the #NowNation campaign last June 23, with the aim of inspiring and enabling millennials to seize the day and pursue their passions be it in sports, music, fashion, gaming, and travel.

With PayMaya, Pinoys with no bank accounts and credit cards can still access financial and digital services such as booking flights online during seat sales. You can get an instant virtual Visa card by downloading the PayMaya app on Google Play or Apple App Store.

“We are thrilled to launch PayMaya’s #NowNation campaign to signify our commitment in empowering millennials to pursue their passions and the endless possibilities that come with being part of this generation,”said Paolo Azzola, Managing Director and co-COO of PayMaya Philippines.

“Now is the time to travel and get out of your comfort zone, to find new places to eat with people you love, and to game up your style to express yourself and be who you truly are. This is what #NowNation is all about, and it is living in the moment with PayMaya that we can unlock a life brimming with experiences,” Azzola continued.

Joining the #NowNation are PayMaya’s newest brand ambassadors, including volleyball player Alyssa Valdez, fashion designer and style blogger Camille Co, up-and-coming fashion and lifestyle guru Seph Cham, Happy Tummy Travels food stylist Chichi Tullao, first Filipino Red Bull Thre3style World DJ Champion DJ Carlo Atendido, popular travel blogger Jonas Roque, and professional Philippine DoTA Team Mineski, who recently represented the Philippines in the international Manila Majors DoTA tournament.

PayMaya also offers exclusive offers. Recently, PayMaya and Uber entered a partnership that enables PayMaya users to link their app or card to their Uber app, making PayMaya the only payment app and prepaid card accepted by the car service. The partnership came with a promo where users who download and use Uber for the first time get 50 percent off on their first Uber ride until July 10, 2016 by using the promo code PAYMAYAxUBER.

In addition to its “Send Money” feature, which allows users to send money to anyone with a PayMaya app, they can now also send and pick up funds at any Smart Padala Center. Soon, users will also be able to pay their bills and government services like SSS via the app.

The top transactions on PayMaya from May 1 to June 13, 2016 based on transaction count are (1) Google, (2) PayPal, (3) iTunes, (4) Uber, (5) Spotify, (6) Valve, (7) Steamgames, (8) Facebook, (9) GrabTaxi, and (10) Lazada. Filipinos are also splurging on travel and lodging—services that were once exclusive to the banked and carded segments of the society.
