A chilly weather and an abundance of flowers are not the only things that will welcome festival-goers trooping to Baguio for this year’s Panagbenga Festival as PayMaya brings a cashless festival experience for all with PayMaya QR!

Whether you're buying Strawberry Taho at the Strawberry Farm, enjoying the bike and swan boat rides at Burnham Park, buying various pasalubong and merchandise during Session Road in Bloom, or taking a cab ride all around Baguio City–all you’ll need to bring is your mobile phone with the PayMaya app in order to pay for all your purchases.

And to give an even more awesome experience to residents and tourists alike, PayMaya customers can get as much as 100% cashback whenever they use PayMaya QR to pay for their items, for a minimum purchase of just P100!

“Aside from the convenience and the amazing savings they can get when paying with PayMaya QR, Festival-goers and Baguio City residents can also be assured that their money is safe when they go around for the festival because all they need to carry around is their phone,” said Kenneth Palacios, Director and Head of Wallets Business at PayMaya.

“So make sure to prepare your PayMaya accounts to be able to enjoy the perks of the 1st cashless festival in the Philippines!”

What's great is that Baguio residents and tourists can continue to enjoy the awesome convenience of paying via PayMaya QR not just during Panagbenga but all year round, as PayMaya strengthens its presence in North Luzon.
