Good news, SM shoppers! Adding money to our PayMaya digital wallet while we’re at The SM Store is now possible. Thats around 600 top-up locations nationwide to consider, especially now that we need to switch to contactless payments for safety. The PayMaya virtual card, which can be accessed via mobile, can be used to pay cashless for groceries at SM Hypermarket and SM Supermarket, for food at our favorite restaurants at SM Supermalls, and as well as for necessities at The SM Store.
In fact, before we got hit by this pandemic, I used to drop by The SM Store at SM Makati after work hours to see if there are new must-have items. Paying via PayMaya QR also enabled me to receive cashback for added savings.
Anyway, here’s what you need to do to load up at any SM branch near you:
- Select “Add Money” on the PayMaya app’s home screen,
- Tap the SM icon.
- Enter the amount you want to add to your account (minimum P100 and maximum of P20,000) and select “Continue”.
- Wait for the 7-digit code to appear. Go to the customer service counter at The SM Store or the Bills Payment counter at SM Supermarket, SM Savemore, or SM Hypermarket and present the code along with your payment to the cashier.
- Wait for an SMS confirmation, and that’s it! You can now pay for your purchases using your PayMaya account.
In case you don’t have a PayMaya app yet, just visit https://official.paymaya.com/CAK1/425eb133 and register an account. It’s honestly one of the most rewarding ways to pay for anything online and in stores.
