MANILA, Philippines —  Businesses, big or small, need to adapt to modern times to stay competitive. Part of this is to take advantage of financial technology (fintech), as more and more consumers find cashless services more practical and convenient.

Fintech plays a big role in today’s society, which is what Maya Business wants to bolster as entrepreneurs move forward with the times. 

PayMaya, the country’s largest processor of merchant payments, has relaunched its enterprise brand as Maya Business.

The new Maya Business seamlessly integrates omnichannel payment acceptance solutions, B2B and B2G payments, with digital banking services powered by Maya Bank, including a high-interest business deposit account and a range of credit products for enterprises and their customers.
