Seamless Overseas Bills Payment Thru Bayad Center Online

BAYAD CENTER has launched its BAYAD CENTER ONLINE to seamless overseas bills payment held at Max’s Function Room, Tiendesitas Mall, Pasig City on the 30th day of this month.

Through the year, the solid stream remittances from overseas (our relatives, friends and others) has played a major role in the country’s economy. Our country could not stress enough how Overseas Filipinos have helped the economy.

Generally, overseas remittance does not only help the country but also help improve the quality of living of their recipients, thus, we consider our fellowmen abroad as our modern day heroes.

BAYAD CENTER

BAYAD CENTER, with the advance technology and innovation wants to applaud and honor the Overseas Filipinos with a service that would enable them to do seamless transactions in aid of their families and loved ones in the country.

Overseas Filipinos can access https://domestic.bayadcenteronline.com/, whereas domestic customers can transact thru https://domestic.bayadcenteronline.com/.
