The National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) launched an online platform that allows its clients, including telecommunications and internet providers, to settle their transaction fees online using Maya, the leading omnichannel payment processor and acquirer in the Philippines.
The NTC Online Processing System with Digital Payment System (NTC OPS-DPS) is a website that aims to streamline and expedite the processing and issuance of licenses, permits, certificates, authorizations, and clearances for telecommunications and internet infrastructure.
“This initiative aligns perfectly with our mission to simplify payments for telecom and internet providers, making transactions more accessible and efficient,” said Ella Blanca Lopez, NTC Commissioner.
Maya is the #1 fintech ecosystem in the Philippines, offering the most advanced digital financial products in the market. It is the #1 digital bank and the #1 omni-channel payment processor, serving as the country’s payment backbone for all modes of payment, from wallets to cards.
For online payments, the NTC OPS-DPS portal is now powered by the Maya Checkout payment gateway, allowing the NTC to accept any Maya, QR PH, and other wallet payments.
This initiative directly responds to President Ferdinand Marcos Jr.’s mandate to enhance efficiencies and leverage digital technologies to simplify business transactions with government offices in the Philippines.
Telecommunications and internet providers can now fulfill online transactions using digital payments through the NTC OPS-DPS website, avoiding long lines and processing time. At the same time, digitizing and automating payment collection for government agencies ultimately leads to improved public service for constituents.
The NTC is the latest addition to Maya’s ongoing efforts to streamline government payments, offering more convenience for citizens.
