[08 NOVEMBER 2017] – Pinoy online shoppers will have a blast this month picking out their Singles’ Day wish lists and purchasing them at huge discounts with the help of various digital apps and platforms from Voyager Innovations and its business arms which includes PayMaya Philippines, FINTQnologies, Inc. (FINTQ), hatch, and Takatack Technologies.
To kick things off this November, PayMaya is giving its users an exclusive 11% rebate from all their purchases on November 11, also known as Singles’ Day. Originating from China, Singles’ Day was established as a way for Chinese male and female individuals to celebrate being single, and turned into one of the biggest e-Commerce events anticipated annually the world over.
PayMaya users can use their Visa cards, Smart Mastercards, and in-app virtual cards to qualify for the 11% rebate whenever they make purchases in-store or online, whether they’re in the Philippines or abroad.
The biggest online shopping discounts
Aside from the Singles’ Day rebate promo, PayMaya is also giving all its users a massive 20% discount for the entire month of November for three of the country’s biggest online shopping destinations – Lazada, Zalora and Takatack.
For Lazada, shoppers only have to key in the promo code PYMYNOV upon checkout to get an extra 20% discount for a minimum purchase of only P500, valid for use multiple times with a maximum discount of P400 per transaction. This will prove useful for Lazada’s Online Revolution shopping event, where Filipinos stand a chance to get big discounts on their favorite items and wish lists.
Meanwhile, for Zalora, all they have to do is key in PAYMAYAHOLIDAY when they make purchases worth at least P1,000 to get 20% off upon checkout. They can use the code multiple times for the whole month of November to help them complete their OOTDs!
In addition, shoppers can also get a huge 30% discount across all items when they shop at Takatack, the largest online discovery platform of Voyager, from November 9 to 11, where they can get a maximum discount of P2,000 for purchases with free shipping for purchases above P2,000.
But when they use their PayMaya card to shop at Takatack this November, they can get an additional 20% off (maximum P500 discount) their purchase by entering the code 11+[First four digits of their PayMaya card] (ex. 114404)! This means they can get as much as 50% discount on items for Singles’ Day weekend, from November 9-11.
To complete the experience, when they register for an account on FINTQ’s digital lending platform Lendr.com.ph, users will also automatically get a P150 discount voucher which they can also use for Lazada, as well as a promo code for an 11% discount which they can use to shop at Takatack.
Shop without data charges
To make Filipinos’ online shopping experience convenient and hassle-free, free Internet platform freenet has partnered with Lazada to give free data access to their app for Smart, TNT, and Sun subscribers. This means they can shop to their heart’s content without having to worry about unintended data charges.
All they have to do is download the freenet app on their Android or iOS device, register with their mobile number, and click the sidebar menu to turn on the Free Access toggle to begin setup. Once done, they can proceed to the Lazada app to enjoy a worry-free shopping experience without data charges.

Simply download the PayMaya and Takatack apps or access the Lendr website under the “Missions” tab within the freenet app to get an instant 100MB credit, which they can use to purchase data packages from the freenet Shop.
