The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines — The Parañaque City government has partnered with mobile wallet platform PayMaya to provide digital payment solutions to clients as part of its e-governance initiatives under the new normal.

Mayor Edwin Olivarez and top officials of PayMaya on Wednesday inked a memorandum of agreement covering a wide range of local government transactions and services.

“We are proud to be pioneering e-government services in the city as part of our strategic initiatives in this community quarantine amid coronavirus pandemic,” said Olivarez during the virtual signing ceremony.

One of the salient features of the agreement with PayMaya is enabling clients to use a digitally enabled payment platform to avail of local government services.

This includes digital payment of traffic violation fees, real property and business taxes, health and other miscellaneous accounts, said lawyer Melanie Soriano-Malaya, chief of the Business Permit and Licensing Office.

Using a web browser or mobile-based application, the transacting party can easily pay for their personal or business transactions without physically going to the city hall.

PayMaya CEO and founder Orlando Vea said their partnership with the Parañaque government is timely and significant as “we highlight our efforts to promote digital payments in government.”

“We are here to provide innovative solutions to LGUs who wish to level up their services to the public and we are proud to be working with Parañaque City,” he added.
