The Municipality of General Mariano Alvarez, led by Mayor Maricel Torres, signed a memorandum of agreement with Uplink Integrated Solution Inc. and Starpay Corporation for its e-gov online system. The agreement will fast-track transaction payments for the LGU’s Electronic Business One-Stop Shop (E-BOSS).
Residents and entrepreneurs of GMA Cavite have been processing their business permits and taxes using E-BOSS. With Starpay, they do not have to physically visit the municipal office for payment transactions. Upon completion of the online forms, and submission of required documents, business owners will receive their assessment via email together with payment instructions. Simply scan the QR code using the Starpay app. and transfer the required amount.
Payors can also scan the QRPH-compliant application to settle payments. The app is equipped with an interoperable QRPH standard, so even non-Starpay users can settle their payments by simply scanning the Starpay QR code.
The partnership is in line with the initiative towards a “One Digitized GMA.” “Patuloy po nating pagsisikapang maabot ang One Digitized GMA! Tuloy na at mag uumpisa na ating online payment with Starpay,” Mayor Maricel Torres said.
Starpay began its cashless payment rollout for public markets in December 2022. During the holiday season market shoppers in Baguio, Davao and Tagbilaran discovered the convenience of cashless payment for fresh meat and produce using Starpay. The event is under the PalengQR PH Plus initiative of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP).
“We have been targeting users at the community level, to grow our client base. So far the public has been very receptive because the platform is user-friendly and very convenient, “ shared Starpay President Lamberto Scarella.
