Valenzuela City partnered with PayMaya to enable an end-to-end cashless payment solution for its 18,000 business owners as well as residents who are securing permits.

The city’s constituents can now settle their fees using a PayMaya account as well as any debit or credit card at Valenzuela City Government website via PayMaya Checkout.

Valenzuela City held a Paspas Permit Fair at the City Hall during the business permit renewal season which concluded this January 20th. “As part of our commitment to the Ease of Doing Business Law, we’re constantly improving our integrated permit application system using digital technologies,” noted Valenzuela City Mayor Rex Gatchalian.

“Our partnership can help in fostering growth and development in your city,” PayMaya Founder and CEO Orlando Vea said.

On November 12, 2019, Valenzuela City introduced the Paspas Permit, the country’s first end-to-end online business permit application system that allows business owners to secure their provisionary business permits within 10 seconds after confirmation of their payment.

Paspas Permit is the flagship system of the upgraded Valenzuela City 3S Plus Online Services platform that allows residents to easily process building and construction permits application, and real property tax payments.

They can also request for their Certified True Copy of Tax Declaration, Tax Mapping Certificate, Certificate of Non-Improvement and Appraisal of Real Property, and Certified True Copy of Birth, Death, and Marriage Certificate.

Valenzuela City joined other forward looking national agencies, such as Social Security System, Pag-IBIG, Bureau of Internal Revenues, Department of Trade and Industry, National Home Mortgage Finance Corp., and the Department of Science and Technology, in embracing digital payment technologies to help provide better service to citizens.

Gatchalian is a two-time recipient of the Department of Information and Communications Technology’s E-Readiness Leadership Awards.

The award recognizes city mayors who pioneer the adoption and use of Information and Communications Technology to enhance their delivery of government services, improve revenue/tax collection efforts and promote transparency in government operations, the agency’s website said.

PayMaya is the only financial technology company in the country that offers end-to-end payment solutions with the widest on-ground branch network.
