PayMaya and Uber launch first four-exclusive promo

PayMaya and Uber has launched an exclusive promo for Uber riders who will use their PayMaya app or card in paying for their transactions. Dubbed the “First Four” promo, this tie-up is part of the partnership between Uber and PayMaya.

From October 3 to December 3, 2016, first-time Uber users will get P100 off on each of their first four rides that they will book using PayMaya and the promo code PAYMAYARIDE. The promo is open to new and existing PayMaya app and card users and is valid for uberX, uberBLACK, and uberPOOL trips in Metro Manila. To avail of the promo, PayMaya users just need to have at least P300 in their account prior to booking their ride.

PayMaya is the only prepaid wallet in the Philippines — and only one in the world outside India and China — that is accepted on Uber. Previously, only those with credit cards could sign up with Uber. With PayMaya, commuters can now open, activate, and use their Uber account even without a credit card. All they need to do is download PayMaya from the Google Play Store or the App Store and activate an account with any mobile number. Users will then have an instant 16-digit virtual Visa card that can be used to open an Uber account and hail convenient, safe, and cashless Uber rides.

“Uber changed people’s lives by providing an unparalleled commuting experience founded on safety, convenience, and reliability. PayMaya strives to make this convenience available to more Filipinos by giving them an accessible payment app that they can immediately use to hail Uber rides. We are excited to see more from this collaboration with Uber in the near future,” said Orlando Vea, President and CEO at Voyager Innovations and PayMaya Philippines.

“This partnership between PayMaya and Uber highlights how technology is enabling more Filipinos to have cashless transactions without necessarily owning a credit card. Riders can be assured that they are provided with the same value of safety, reliability, and convenience with PayMaya, as they have been with Uber,” said Laurence Cua, General Manager, Uber Philippines.
