PayMaya Philippines said it expanded its reach to 200,000 touchpoints nationwide, which it said is the country's largest cashless payment network.

Filipinos can pay, add money, cash out, or remit using their PayMaya accounts through touchpoints such as convenience stores, retail merchants, groceries, department stores, food outlets, pawnshops, and Smart Padala centers, to name a few. To date, PayMaya services around 28 million Filipinos.

PayMaya has an on-ground network of over 37,000 Smart Padala partner agent touchpoints and covers 92% of all cities and municipalities nationwide.

These Smart Padala agents are connecting unbanked and underserved Filipinos to the digital economy, offering remittance, bills payment, add money, cash out, and scan-to-pay transactions.
