SEC: Online Payment Options Expanded
In a Press Release dated 9 June 2022, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) announced it continues to add new options for its online payment system — making the payment for registration and transaction fees faster and more convenient for the public.
According to the SEC, clients can now use their GCash payment wallets to settle registration and other transaction fees, as well as penalties, with the Commission, through the Electronic System for Payments to the SEC (eSPAYSEC). The transacting public may access the eSPAYSEC through the Commission’s website at https://espaysec.sec.gov.ph/payment-portal/home. To use GCash for their payments, clients only need to enter the reference number provided in the Payment Assessment Form issued by the SEC, select GCash as their payment option, then provide the required information. Each transaction charges a minimal convenience fee of P10.
Furthermore, the Press Release states that other online payment channels that are accepted by eSPAYSEC include debit and credit cards powered by Visa, Mastercard and JCB, as well as PayMaya wallets.
Launched in March 1, 2021, the eSPAYSEC is a web-based system that allows for the payment of fees and penalties to the Commission online using debit and credit cards, digital wallets, and other cashless payment options.
Meanwhile, the Commission states it continues to accept and process payments across its main and extension offices. The public may likewise pay registration and other transaction fees over the counter in select branches of Land Bank of the Philippines.
