The Bureau of Customs’ (BOC) has a new payment system that is now connected to the Electronic-to-Mobile (E2M) System.

The Payment Application Secure 6 (PAS6) is an upgraded version of the Payment Application Secure System Version 5.0 (PASS5) system.

BOC, in a statement, said the connection of PAS6 to the E2M System ensures the accurate and immediate exchange of transaction information on the assessment details of payable duties and taxes. In addition, the system allows clearance of shipments in a shorter period of time as payments are processed seamlessly.

The PAS6’s design also allows the completion of payments within minutes for better customer experience and is directly connected to the Philippine Payment and Settlement System through the Philippine Clearing House Corp.’s payment gateway, ensuring that remittances to BOC are done immediately and accurately.

Aside from PAS6, BOC in 2020 has inked a memorandum of agreement with the Bureau of the Treasury, Development Bank of the Philippines, and online payment service provider PayMaya Philippines, Inc. to allow clients to use PayMaya’s payment solutions to pay miscellaneous fees and charges.
