Manila tests automated payment machine
Manila received a free automated payment machine (APM) following the signing of a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with the League of Municipalities of the Philippines (LMP) on Tuesday.
The machine from Gracia Telecoms can be used to settle online payments and purchases, withdraw money, transfer money to other accounts, among others.
Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso said the APM will allow residents to tend to their financial responsibilities in a safe and convenient manner.
The public is still discouraged to make face-to-face transactions as the country continues to fight the coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19).
Domagoso said he is eyeing to place the machine at KapeTolyo, the new coffee shop that the city government built near the Andres Bonifacio Monument in Ermita.
The Manila mayor signed the MOA with Gracia Telecoms president and CEO Charisse Singson and LMP president Chavit Singson.
