Five Mother’s Day Gifts You Can Easily Get Online Even While You're Staying at Home

Mother’s Day is coming up this weekend, and while we're all on stay-at-home quarantine mode, it’s still more than possible to make your mom feel special on the day of the year that’s just for her! 

With many businesses now opening online stores with delivery and cashless payments options, finding a good gift for your mom should be a breeze. Here are some hassle-free gift ideas: 

1.     For the movie junkie mom 
If your mom loves movies, why not give her access to all her favorite films and series with a Netflix subscription? You can even set up a movie night for the entire family complete with your go-to snacks. 

Subscribing to Netflix with your PayMaya virtual or physical card is easy. Buying snacks online at supermarkets like Landers and Super8 is also convenient, now that you can pay by simply keying in the mobile number linked to your PayMaya account. You can even score up to 100% Balik Bayad for your purchases!

2.     For the mom who’s the senti type 
If you’re feeling a little crafty, you can also create a scrapbook for your mom. Compile photos of your favorite moments together as well as little memorabilia like theme park tickets, and use materials that are readily available at home. Include heartfelt letters from the entire family and get ready for some happy tears from your senti mom.  

If you don’t have art materials available, you can easily order them via National Bookstore at Lazada and pay with your PayMaya account.  

3. For the foodie mom 
What better way to spend a Mother’s Day than with the people she loves most? Plan a nice and warm Sunday meal with the whole family at home, and take the pressure off her hands by having her favorite food delivered. What’s even better is you can order food online at a PayMaya partner restaurant like McDonald's, Goldilocks, Army Navy, Shakey's, Red Ribbon, Chowking, Burger King, Domino's Pizza, Sariwon Korean Barbecue, Soban K-Town Grill, and Sibyullee Unlimited Korean BBQ, and pay using your phone number for up to 100% Balik Bayad

4.     For the mom who’s practical 
One great way to show your love for your mom who keeps the house together is by helping out with the household expenses. Take care of groceries by ordering online, and settle her bills for her, all with the help of your PayMaya. You can even get P100 Balik Bayad when you pay a PLDT bill worth at least P1,000 this month, as well as P50 Balik Bayad for Smart and Sun postpaid bills. 

5.     For the extroverted mom 
Does your mom miss all her friends and relatives? How about setting up one big video call with the whole family to greet her and her fellow moms a happy Mother’s Day? You can make sure you stay connected by buying data packages for your and the rest of her friends at discounted rates through the PayMaya app!

Creating a PAYMAYA Account to Receive SSS Wage Subsidy

With the enhanced community quarantine in Luzon and other provinces in Visayas and Mindanao still in place, many employees and workers have had their livelihoods affected, particularly those working in industries and businesses that were forced to temporarily suspend operations. 

Thankfully, employees and workers affected can see if they qualify for the national government’s Small Business Wage Subsidy (SBWS) program through the Social Security System (SSS) or apply for other loans and have the funds disbursed safely and conveniently to their PayMaya account. The application period for this subsidy program has been extended until May 8, 2020.

PayMaya has partnered with SSS to be the only e-wallet that can receive SBWS funds from the government, allowing even those without a bank account to conveniently receive the subsidy by simply signing up for a PayMaya account using their mobile devices.

All you have to do is make sure to provide your PayMaya mobile number to your employer, who will then enroll your PayMaya account to be linked to SSS once they receive access to the SBWS application portal. 

Easily receive your wage subsidy via PayMaya

To get started, simply follow these steps to register for a PayMaya account:

1) Download the PayMaya app on your iOS or Android phone

2) Register for an account using your Mobile Number, Name, and Email Address

3) Enter the Verification Code that will be sent to the Mobile Number you registered with

4) Upgrade your account by accessing the menu and tapping "Upgrade Your Account"

5) Once your account is set up and upgraded, give your PayMaya mobile number to your employer who will then enroll your account through the SSS online portal

Once enrolled, loan proceeds and wage subsidies can now be disbursed to your PayMaya account once the funds are available. Wage subsidies and loan applications are subject to approval of SSS and based on eligibility of employees after application has been submitted by their respective employers.

To successfully receive your wage subsidies and loan proceeds via PayMaya, make sure that your PayMaya accounts are upgraded. For a faster and smoother upgrade process, uploading a Unified Multi-Purpose ID (UMID) is recommended. Likewise, ensure that the information in your upgrade application form is the same as the one reflected in your ID. For more information on how to upgrade your PayMaya account, visit www.paymaya.com/upgrade.

Once upgraded, you may encash the funds through the more than 30,000 Smart Padala centers nationwide or withdraw the funds at any Bancnet ATMs currently available using their physical PayMaya card.

Aside from offering convenience, utilizing PayMaya for various digital transactions is also a safer way to pay as part of physical distancing and health measures. Using the PayMaya app, Filipinos can continue doing transactions such as paying their bills, settling government dues, buying airtime load for themselves or their friends, or sending money to loved ones in the provinces all at the safety of their own homes.

PayMaya is the leading digital financial services company in the country that offers end-to-end payment solutions with the widest on-ground branch network. It is the first to give millions of Filipinos an e-wallet that allows them to pay cashless transactions at any time of the day, anywhere in the world, and from any device.
