Philippines’ leading wireless provider Smart Communications has teamed up with PayMaya to launch a new payment system which can be used for toll booths and other services. The system involves the use of its Tap and Go Smart Mastercard.
In case you don’t know, the Tap & Go Smart Mastercard is a prepaid card which is easily reloadable wherever you are in the country. The card is powered by PayMaya and it happens to be the first prepaid Mastercard which is accepted for toll payments at NLEX and will soon be acceptable on CavitEx as well.
If you are interested in having this stress-free service, all you need do is walk into any Smart store and purchase the Tap and Go Mastercard. You’ll need to activate it through SMS and then have it loaded. The card is reloadable only at designated recharge stations, of which there are over 15,000 reloading stations nationwide.
When the card is reloaded, it can be used for payment at toll booths and to make purchases anywhere Mastercard is accepted in the Philippines and even overseas, including online transactions. You’ll also need to download the PayMaya app on Google Playstore or Apple’s app store. You need to have your card linked inside the app in order for you to easily pay bills, send money via the app, and have access to more features.
