Maya has announced that it can now scan GCash QR codes, and vice versa, as long as it uses QR Ph.
QR Ph was developed to adopt an interoperable common QR code that may be scanned and interpreted by any participating bank or non-bank e-money institution (EMI) to facilitate customers’ requests for fund transfers and payments. With this feature, QR Ph can be used for digital person-to-person (P2P) transfers and person-to-merchants (P2M) payments through InstaPay.
QR Ph’s participating banks and e-wallets QR code has the blue, red, and yellow design at the center. Read more about it here.
With this new standard, a GCash customer can now scan a store’s Maya QR code and a Maya customer can also scan a store’s GCash QR code. This is free of charge for officially registered merchants using the QRPH “Person to Merchant” standard.
