Bayad, a full-service fintech subsidiary of Meralco has beefed up its partnership with PLDT Global Corporation, the international arm of the country’s leading integrated telco company PLDT.
Under the partnership, PLDT Global’s one-stop-shop payment platform TINBO (Tindahan ni Bossing), enables Filipinos overseas to conveniently settle their bills for Philippine brands that are powered by Bayad. These cover payments for electric and water utility, cable and internet, government contributions, loan payments, school tuition fees, online shopping, insurance, and many others.
“This collaboration with Bayad would help us in providing seamless service to Filipinos overseas. It also strengthens the TINBO platform and enables migrant Filipinos to easily make transactions and conveniently pay for Philippine bills, empowering them to care for their families in the Philippines and strengthening their ties to home, even from afar,” Albert Villa-Real, PLDT Global president and chief executive said.
Through TINBO’s web-based portal, tinbo.ph that’s accessible across Asia, Europe and United States, customers can pay for their bills using any MasterCard or Visa debit card or credit card, or via available payment channels activated in their respective locations.

“Our partnership aims to ignite borderless connectivity, and promote financial literacy and digital citizenship,” he added.
