I was looking for drinks at the Alfamart convenience store at the ground floor of the Grace Residences in Taguig when I saw a TouchPay machine. I’ve read about it on the Paymaya website, so I decided to try to use it to load my Paymaya.
It was easy, and the one-thousand peso bill that I entered into the machine got credited instantly to my Paymaya account. I immediately got a text from PayMaya informing me that my TouchPay load was already added to my PayMaya account.
