Rose Pharmacy accepts cashless payments through PayMaya

Rose Pharmacy now accepts cashless payments for medicine and other in-store items through PayMaya QR, and VISA and Mastercard powered by PayMaya Business. This is made possible through a collaboration with PLDT Enterprise and PayMaya.

L-R: PLDT AVP and Corporate Business Head for Visayas-Mindanao Jimmy Chua, PayMaya COO and Managing Director Paolo Azzola, and Rose Pharmacy, Inc. CEO Charlie Bettencourt during the ceremonial launch of PayMaya QR in the Rose Pharmacy branch in Cebu IT Park.

Initially, 130 branches of Rose Pharmacy nationwide will accept PayMaya QR, so customers can pay for purchases using the PayMaya app installed on their mobile phones. The number of branches with PayMaya QR “installed” will soon increase.

Also, select Rose Pharmacy branches and Rose Pharmacy’s online delivery service can now accept VISA and Mastercard payments powered by PayMaya Business.

Offer is valid only for a maximum cashback of P300 per store, per day (Per DTI Permit No. 6904, Series of 2018).
