We wish there were a more straightforward method of changing your mobile number in Paymaya, but this is what we found out for now.
1. You can contact Paymaya using two methods. First is through their email: firstname.lastname@example.org, which is free but may take longer.
Or you can do it by calling their hotline (+632) 8845-77-88 or *788 using a Smart mobile number.
2. Then, you need to ask for a request for an update of your registered number.
3. Depending on what method you used, you may be asked to provide the following details: service request number, old + new number, reason of the request, signature over the printed name, and two valid IDs.
Then, you’ll need to send it to email@example.com.
That’s it! This may take a few days, but it’s better than nothing. The steps here should only be interpreted as a guide, not a step-by-step tutorial.
