Receive Western Union Remittance Via PayMaya


Here's how to receive Western Union money transfer via your PayMaya account.

Once the money is credited to your PayMaya account, you can immediately use it to pay bills., shop online, or transfer to your bank account.

Remittance may take 24 hours to be reflected in your PayMaya account due to some validation procedures per mobile transfer transaction.
