When it comes to bills payment, the name Bayad immediately comes to mind because for more than two decades now, the company has been making payments more accessible, convenient, and secure for Filipinos.
In touch with the changing times and customer needs, the company rebranded from being Bayad Center to Bayad early this year. It continues to innovate and grow its product portfolio, expand its network of billers and partners, as well as strengthen its onsite and online presence, living out its commitment to be bigger, better, and younger. Evolving from a payment outlet solely for Meralco bills, Bayad has become the most trusted authority in payments and other financial services for every home and every community. Currently, Bayad has more than 70,000 payment touchpoints nationwide.
Bayad has also been powering and supporting the bills payment capability of numerous mobile apps such as Gcash and PayMaya, e-commerce platforms like Lazada and Shopee, banks such as Maybank and BPI, and government agencies like SSS, GSIS, and MMDA.
Alongside its continued efforts to innovate payment solutions, Bayad also brings business opportunities to enterprising Filipinos through its franchising program, which has been catapulted to the Franchise Excellence Hall of Fame of the Philippine Franchise Association (PFA).
