World of Warcraft’s newest expansion, Legion, is expected to go live on August 30. Starting August 9, the Demon Hunter class is available for those who pre-purchased said expansion.

Players had several options before when buying expansions and subscription: use a credit card, go to stores that sell the expansions sets and game cards, buy from someone and pay them over the counter, ask a friend to pay it, and more. Now there’s another option for players in the Philippines – download the PayMaya app and get a virtual Visa prepaid card.




Download the app

It’s available both on iOS and Android.

Register an account

All you need is a Philippine mobile number to register! It doesn’t matter who your provider is, the app is telco-agnostic.
