What is PayMaya Savings?

PayMaya savings is a new offering in the app where users can save money and earn up to 6% interest.

It allows users to easily save money without opening a bank account. In a sense, it’s your own bank account within the PayMaya app.

The Maya savings account is similar to GCash GSave, Diskartech, Tonik and other digital banks/wallets.

What is the Interest Rate on PayMaya Savings?

The introductory interest rate is 6% per annum when you open an account until September 30, 2022. But the base interest rate after that is 2.5% which is still higher than most banks.

There also would be lots of interesting interest rate promos in the future to encourage more account openings.

Generally, the more money you save, the higher interest rate you can get in Maya.
