Booking and paying for a COVID-19 test get safer and more convenient as PayMaya powers the online payment gateway of the Philippine Red Cross (PRC). With this tie-up, Filipinos can use any credit, debit, and prepaid card, as well as their PayMaya account when paying for PRC services online.
To help combat the spread of COVID-19 in the country, the PRC has been stepping up on its COVID-19 test services by making it more accessible to Filipinos. By enabling advance booking and cashless payments powered by PayMaya, citizens who avail of tests through PRC are assured of lesser exposure to crowds as all they need to do is show up at the PRC collection sites on their scheduled time.
“Access to COVID-19 tests is critical in our country’s fight against COVID-19. By enabling the widest cashless payment acceptance through PayMaya’s online payment gateway in our booking platform, we are making it easier for citizens to avail of lifeline services,” said Senator Richard J. Gordon, Chairman and CEO of the Philippine Red Cross.
“We are glad to be a steadfast partner of the PRC in its efforts to deliver critical services especially during this pandemic. Providing them with a safer and more inclusive payment acceptance service through our PayMaya Checkout online payment gateway will help ensure that they can extend their services to as many Filipinos as possible,” said Shailesh Baidwan, President of PayMaya.
