PayMaya on Thursday launched its virtual shopping mall, banking on the boom in online transactions during the quarantine.

The PayMaya Mall serves as a centralized store, where users can access the long list of partner merchants accepting payments via PayMaya.

More than just being a mobile wallet, the company wants to serve as a virtual hub users can turn to during the pandemic for their daily needs and treat-yourself moments.
