MANILA — I-Pay Ventures Commerce Ventures, Inc. (I-Pay) recently signed a joint-venture agreement with MY E.G. Services Bhd (MYEG) to enable government and large enterprises in the Philippines to offer a Payment Gateway and related value-added online services.

MYEG has also been constantly recognized by Forbes as one of Asia’s “Best Under A Billion” companies.

“We are very excited to work with I-Pay to offer a superior G2C user experience in the Philippines,” said TS Wong, managing director, My E.G. Services Bhd. “Our unique model provides significant cost savings and increased efficiency to all stakeholders. Combined with I-Pay’s established operating record, we are confident of achieving mass adoption in the coming years.”

I-Pay’s vision is to facilitate Government and enterprises in delivering technology-driven services encompassing the Internet, automation, big data and electronic payments.
