Voyager Innovations, announced recently the launch of its QR-based mobile payment system in Boracay, Aklan, initially available at the Hue Resorts & Hotels Boracay and its adjacent food and retail complex, Station X.

Boracay’s pioneering food park called Street Market, including other establishments at Station X, are now accepting payments using PayMaya’s revolutionary QR-based payment system which allows customers to pay by pointing their phone camera at QR codes displayed at the merchant’s premises.
“We are strong advocates of entrepreneurship, unique concepts and innovation. This is why we are very excited about PayMaya’s integration with the vision to further enhance customer experience and convenience especially here in Boracay. We are proud to be part of the cashless movement and especially proud to be partnering with PayMaya for this,” said Dexter Lee and Dennis Lee, Managing Directors at Hue Hotels and Resorts Boracay.

“Station X and Hue are perfect matches for PayMaya in Boracay, as part of our initiative to accelerate cashless ecosystems nationwide via PayMaya Spots. They bring a fresh take on the food and hotel scene on the island. A superior customer experience includes providing a new and exciting way to pay, with PayMaya QR,” explained Paolo Azzola, COO and Managing Director at PayMaya Philippines.

Using PayMaya QR is very simple. All you have to do is download the PayMaya app on your iOS or Android phone, register for an account using any Philippine-based mobile number, and load up your account at any of the more than 15,000 touchpoints available for account holders. You can also register to have a PayMaya account via PayMaya in Messenger (@PayMayaOfficial).

Once you have funds available in your account, you simply have to tap “Scan” in the app and point the camera at the QR code displayed by the merchant, and you’ll be able to instantly pay for your purchases at the simple tap on your screen.

PayMaya is the eWallet from PayMaya Philippines, the digital financial services arm of PLDT and Smart’s Voyager Innovations. It is the preferred prepaid wallet and app of choice for millions of young Filipinos.
