It’s the holiday season once again. While this year’s celebration might not be the same as we know it, this shouldn’t be an excuse to forget the real meaning behind Christmas and we all shouldn’t lose the tradition of gift-giving.
This new normal, why not be the cool ninong or ninang for your inaanaks by sending them stuff with a little help of technology? All that’s needed for you to make them feel extra special and remembered this holiday season is a PayMaya account. Here are few ideas how:
- Modern-day “ang pao”
Since we all still need to practice social distancing as a health protocol while celebrating Christmas Day, seeing your inaanaks and personally handing them their “ang pao” will not be possible this time. As an alternative, you can just send them money easily and conveniently through PayMaya! And if your godchildren are old enough to understand how technology, why not also teach them how e-money works while you’re at it? This will also help them be aware about the convenience brought about by cashless payments.
PayMaya has both the “Send Money” and “Bank Transfer” feature for secure and seamless money transfer via the PayMaya app in just a few clicks and swipes.
- Send them digital goods.
No doubt that kids these days are becoming tech-savvy and it’s no surprise if their holiday wish list includes stuff like gaming pins or app subscriptions for their entertainment. The good news is this is yet another thing you can easily deliver to them through the PayMaya app. Apart from food vouchers, the “Treats” portion of the PayMaya app offers all sorts of digital gifts including game credits, and even prepaid load. Just remember to tell the young ones’ parents about sending them these, though, so they will be guided accordingly.
As a mom of two tech-savvy kids, I can vouch for how easy it is for me to use PayMaya in buying games and other items even those that are from the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store.
- Food is always a great gift choice.
Speaking of surprise deliveries, why not opt for something that will not only make your inaanaks‘ hearts full but also their stomach? Apart from using PayMaya as a safe payment option for online purchases, you can also score cashbacks and other deals and discounts when you use your PayMaya mobile number when buying from their partner merchants. Quite a steal, right?
By doing any of the listed items above, you will not only make your inaanaks happy but you can also join PayMaya’s current mission of helping the micro-entrepreneurs in the country.
Everytime you use PayMaya’s #ScanToPay or QR payment method, pay with your PayMaya mobile number online, and buy items at the PayMaya in-app shop, you’ll also get a raffle entry for the PayMayaguinaldo promo where you can win up to P1 million pesos.
With each purchase, you can also help micro entrepreneurs in underprivileged communities as PayMaya will also be donating P1 million to Gawad Kalinga to help establish more resilient communities. The PayMayaguinaldo promo runs until January 10, 2021.
