When PayMaya was officially launched about half a year ago, it was promised that one of the upcoming in-app features of it would be the ability to pay bills. I think that particular feature has finally arrived to PayMaya users today.
Earlier today I received an SMS notification from PayMaya saying...
" Your app got even better! Update to the latest version to enjoy the new "Pay Bills" feature. Now you can pay your Meralco, PLDT, Cignal, and Laguna Water bills anywhere you are! Make sure to input your MERALCO REF NO as your Account No. There's more to come so stay tuned!"So as soon as I read this message, I updated my PayMaya app to check out and headed to the PayMaya website to learn more. Then I realized that it's been available since August 8, 2016, which is pretty nice.
So as of right now, through partnership with Bayad Center, PayMaya users can now pay their utility bills for the following companies through this app.
- Laguna Water
So how to pay bills using PayMaya? Simply go to the settings, click on the 3-bar icon at the top right of your PayMaya app screen, and select Pay Bills from the menu. In the next screen you will be asked to select the biller, enter Account Number, and the amount to be paid.

Good news is, this new Pay Bills service is free of charge which is a super added convenience for most of us. By using this service, it's not just about saving time and effort if we take the usual route of going to the payment centers of these companies, it's also about saving money.
