Send money to loved ones instantly without leaving the Messenger app. Here’s how:


Step 1: Link your PayMaya account

Open a chatbox with PayMaya > Click “Menu” > Select “My Money”

Step 2:  Check your PayMaya balance 

This step is optional if you’re sure that there’s enough credits in your PayMaya wallet for the amount you’re planning to send. Either way, this is how you can check your PayMaya balance through the Messenger app!

Open a chatbox with PayMaya > Click “Menu” > Select “My Money”

PayMaya on Messenger - Account Creation 1

Select “Check Balance”

Your PayMaya balance will be prompted via chat.

Note that anyone who can access your Messenger app can view your PayMaya balance. For this, it’s always more secure not to let other people borrow your mobile phone, more so let them know your Facebook password. For money transfers, bills payment, and mobile load purchases, Messenger will always ask for your Facebook password to confirm that you approve of each transaction.

Step 3: Send money to your Messenger contacts!

You’re all set to send money via PayMaya on Messenger! But first, a few reminders:

  • You can only send money to your Messenger contacts. You don’t necessarily have to be Facebook friends, but you must be connected via Messenger.
  • Your PayMaya account must be upgraded to send money.
  • Your recipient doesn’t need to have an upgraded PayMaya account to receive money. It’s also alright if they don’t have a PayMaya account yet. Recipients can create their own PayMaya account via Messenger to claim the money you sent.
  • If the amount you sent is not claimed within 7 days, it will be credited back to your account automatically.

That’s it! Let’s begin.

Open a chatbox with your recipient and press the “+” button at the lower-left.

Tap “Payments”

Enter the amount you want to transfer.

You can also include a short and sweet message along with the money transfer.

Enter your Facebook password to confirm the transaction.

A confirmation message will be sent via chat and SMS.

The transaction will also automatically reflect on your PayMaya app. Tap “View Details” to see your PayMaya transaction ID.
