Baguio Water District customers now have more options to pay water bills using their mobile phones as the Summer Capital’s lone public water utility partners with PayMaya thru the Electronic Commerce Payments, Inc. (EC Pay).
Effective April 27, 2021, BWD customers need only to enroll for a PayMaya account using their android or apple phones and they can start paying their water bills at the touch of their fingertips.
BWD General Manager Engr. Salvador M. Royeca said the additional payment option matches the District’s goal to continuously provide ease in doing business with its consumers without the hassle of queuing physically at the BWD tellers and other payment collection centers such as SM.
According to GM Royeca, the undertaking is very timely as off-site and online payment schemes for various products and services continue to dominate the Filipino market while everyone navigates their way through the new normal.
Consumers can pay their BWD water bills through the PayMaya mobile app in seven (7) easy steps, as follows: Log in with your account to the PayMaya mobile application; Go to BILLS; tap on the WATER UTILITY menu icon on screen; click on the BAGUIO WATER DISTRICT logo; fill-up the required fields (account number, account name, and amount due), then tap CONTINUE; review the details and tap on the PAY option, an additional Php5.00 convenience fee shall be debited from your account; and a confirmation text will be received via your registered mobile phone number after your payment has been processed.
Apart from PayMaya, other available and accredited BWD payment centers and facilities include; GCash thru the GCash application; 7-Eleven Stores via the CLIQQ mobile application (nationwide); SM Bills Payment Center; Savemore Supermarket; USSC Super Service Stores (Baguio and Benguet branches); Development Bank of the Philippines ATM units nationwide or over-the-counter during banking hours; and the Landbank of the Philippines thru their Electronic Payment Portal (ePP).
Meanwhile, customers are advised to settle overdue bills directly at the BWD main office from Mondays to Saturdays, 8:00AM to 5:00PM.
