Reasons why would you delete your Paymaya account
You might be wondering why someone would want to delete their Paymaya account.
There are three main ones. Let’s talk about all of them here:
Paymaya only allows one account per person. But sometimes, people would forget that they already created an account before, and they’d create a new one.
If this is the case, then Paymaya will tag your account as a duplicate.
This will be a case for account suspension or termination. So, it’s best to avoid this early on if you notice this.
To reconcile your duplicate accounts, you can write an email to email@example.com, or you can call them through their hotline: (02) 8-845-7788 or *788 using a Smart mobile number.
Whether you write an email or call through their hotline, be ready to provide your account’s details: Full Name, Birthday, Mobile Number, and Complete Address.
You don’t want to use Paymaya anymore
Another reason why you would want to delete your Paymaya account because you don’t want to use it anymore.
This may mean that you don’t want to use e-wallets anymore, or you’ve found another one to use.
Whatever the case, you can easily ask to delete your Paymaya account through email by following the steps above!
To avoid charges
Yes, Paymaya may charge maintenance fees for inactive accounts if you haven’t had a financial transaction in over a year.
Or if you haven’t claimed the money in your account for a year.
If you still haven’t done any financial transactions within five years, your account may become dormant.
Thus, it’s better to request for account deletion rather than incur charges or wait for your account to be dormant.
This is written in their Terms & Conditions, which you agreed with when you created your account.
