Have you ever felt disappointed when you missed on a purchase online because you don’t have a credit card? Nowadays, many businesses are offering online payment solutions but the lack of a credit card disables potential shoppers all the time. More than the impact to the business, it discourages a lot of Filipino consumers who are mostly millennials.
Recognizing this dilemma, PayMaya Philippines (formerly Smart e-Money, Inc), the financial services arm of Smart and PLDT, launched #NowNation, a campaign to inspire and enable the millennials to live the moment and pursue their passions, be it in sports, music, fashion, gaming, and travel.
In the next decade, the millennials will be the largest living generation in the Philippines—and their numbers and lifestyle will drive the country’s prosperity. PayMaya backs this growing consumption to help build the Philippine economy. As of May 1 to June 13, 2016, the top transactions on PayMaya were: (1) Google, (2) PayPal, (3) iTunes, (4) Uber, (5) Spotify, (6) Valve, (7) Steamgames, (8) Facebook, (9) GrabTaxi, and (10) Lazada.
“This is what #NowNation is all about, and it is living in the moment with PayMaya that we can unlock a life brimming with experiences,” said Paolo Azzola, Managing Director and co-COO of PayMaya Philippines.
PayMaya also introduced their newest brand ambassadors who have persisted in what they love to do every day and became a prominent figure in their chosen fields. With the #NowNation ambassadors, PayMaya hopes to inspire young millennials to go beyond dreaming and start living.
