PayMaya Philippines on Monday said it has teamed up with the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) to allow Filipino professionals to settle fees online.
The online payments platform was tapped by the PRC to accept prepaid, credit, and debit cards, as well as mobile numbers linked to PayMaya e-wallet accounts.
The service was actually made available to professionals starting, June 28, 2019.
Under the agreement, PayMaya has powered the PRC website with an online checkout page that will accept payments for various transactions.
Examination and license registration fees, as well as of Professional Identification Card renewals and certifications of board rating and passing can now be paid electronically.
“This is very timely as there is an increasing demand for digitalization in the public sector space as government agencies are now automating their processes,” said PayMaya Philippines founder and CEO Orlando Vea.
The portal accepts payments from any debit, prepaid and credit cards such as Visa, MasterCard, and JCB.
According to PayMaya, transactions will soon be accepted through the PayMaya mobile application.
“With this in place, Filipinos no longer have to go to PRC’s physical offices to pay for their transactions. It reduces their travel time and expenses as they can avail themselves of the PRC’s services within the comforts of their home,” Vea noted.
The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) earlier set 2020 as deadline to have 20% of all transactions done digitally. —Jon Viktor Cabuenas/VDS, GMA News
