What is GCash?

A more recent and notable digital development in this space is the e-wallet, of which the Philippines is no stranger to, thanks to GCash. Arguably a household name for convenient electronic transactions, GCash is an app that you can install on any of your devices—be it a smartphone or a tablet. It allows you to pay your bills, purchase goods and services, and even send or receive money wherever you are.

To date, GCash has made financial transactions easier for its 33 million registered users. And with over 73,000 partner merchants in the country, it truly has helped revolutionize the way Filipinos transact.

What Can I do With GCash?

GCash takes convenience to an entirely different level. You can do so much on the app that it has effectively taken away the struggles of braving heat—or rain—in Manila traffic, as well as long lines and wasted time. With the hours you save, you can invest more in the things that infinitely matter more: family, friends, passions and health.

Pay bills. GCash takes the dread out of waiting in long lines at payment centers. With a simple tap on your screen, you’re finished paying off your financial obligations. The app allows you to pay utilities, credit card bills, government bills, loans and even tuition fees without breaking a sweat.

To make things even easier, GCash allows you to save your preferred billers and billing details on the app and can set a monthly reminder so you never oversee another due date! Also: the occasional rebate.

Save Money. Enjoy greater security and financial freedom in life by building up your savings with GCash’s GSave. 

GSave makes saving money more accessible and easy for both banked and unbanked individuals. You don’t need to worry about maintaining balance because GSave doesn’t require it. Moreover, users get to enjoy a 3.1% interest rate with any amount deposited. See your savings grow quickly within the app. You can also schedule auto-deposit within the GSave feature, so you don’t forget to save regularly. 

Plant a Tree. Enjoy planting virtual trees like Avocado, Guyabano, Yakal, and Narra—that have real-life equivalents—on GForest. Every time you use GCash for transactions, whether to buy load, send money, or pay bills, you are rewarded with “green energy points” you can collect and use later to “plant” a tree, as spearheaded by Globe. 

With GForest, you get to make every day Earth Day by harvesting energy points to plant more trees and contribute to enriching the country’s natural resources.

Book movies. Take more control of your leisure time and book your seat at movies as early or as late as you want at any our partner cinemas. Skip the queue and straight to the theaters of your favorite Ayala Malls, SM Supermalls and Uptown Bonifacio.

Transfer money. Stressed about the fees that your bank charges whenever you transfer or send money to another account? Install the GCash app! You can send money to anyone or any of our partner banks in real-time.

The Send Money To Bank Account feature lets you transfer money from your digital wallet to any partner bank—eliminating the need for multiple banking apps! Take note that starting November 2020, sending money via bank transfer costs Php15. Meanwhile, GCash also allows you to transfer money to another GCash wallet with no additional charges, no matter what network you’re using.

Cash Out/Withdraw Cash. If you’ve accumulated a significant amount of GCash, you can cash out the money through partner outlets, transfer directly to your bank account or withdraw from any Bancnet ATM with your GCash card.

Use GCredit. Think of GCredit as your personal credit line with the app. You can use it to shop now and pay later at partner merchants or to pay your bills. This feature is only available for fully verified users who have raised their GScore to acertain level, however—so use the app often! The more transactions you make, the bigger your limit will be.

Buy load. Running low on load? You can top it up through the GCash app! Buy load for any network and possibly earn a 5 percent cashback! Aside from prepaid load, you can also purchase load combos, gaming pins and even broadband packages.

Borrow load. If you’re low on digital cash but need the load urgently, you can take advantage of the Borrow Load feature of the app. You’ll have two days to pay back the amount without having to pay interest or service fee.

Order food and shop online with GLife. GLife aims to level up and simplify your shopping experience. It’s a new permanent feature that integrates “mini-apps” from various merchants or brands within the GCash dashboard. Now, you can shop and use the services of local and international online stores within this app thanks to this new shopping feature. 

Within the GCash app, you can conveniently order food online or shop without the need to download your merchant’s online shopping app. For instance, if you need to buy something from Lazada, you don’t need to access or download the app and just shop within the GCash Lazada mini-app. 

Currently, there are over 30 lifestyle brands on GLife, including online shops, food delivery services, airline companies, gadget stores, grocery stores, and more. 

You can also order food and shop online with GLife and pay with cash. Simply choose GCash as your payment option and confirm your transaction. Since you’re already shopping within the app, it’s easier for you and the merchant to process the payment. 

You can also shop online and transact through other payment methods in the GCash ecosystem. You can apply for American Express Virtual Pay through the GCash app with your email or get a GCash Mastercard for only Php150. 

Grow money with GInvest. For those who are new to investing and planning to make their first investment but unsure where to start, the GInvest feature is a good investment for beginners. GInvest allows you to invest in different investment funds from GCash’s reliable partner product providers. 

GInvest has a swift account verification process and is more inclusive than banks. With GInvest, you only need to get your account verified and put in a minimum investment of Php50. There are no commission and sales fees, and you can sell and buy through your GCash wallet. 

Wondering how to invest money in GCash? Read on—it’s easy, hassle-free, and affordable! 

Go to GInvest and start with the registration process. Answer the questions on the screen honestly to see the type of investor you are. Once you complete the process and read the GInvest User Agreement or Terms and Conditions, you’ll see your risk profile assessment result. 

After this, you can start viewing the investment products on GInvest and start your GCash investment. You can also schedule your preferred time to remind you to grow your funds so that you can invest money regularly. 

Have peace of mind with GInsure. Be financially secure and ready for anything with GInsure. This feature on the GCash app offers users access to various insurance products that provide cash assistance and medical coverage. With GCash Insurance, you can access different protection products powered by Singlife, such as:

  • Cash for Dengue Costs 
  • Cash for Income Loss (Accidents)
  • Cash for Income Loss (Any Cause)

  • In good health and able to work and do not have any pre-existing conditions (for Cash for Income Loss due to any cause)

Buy in-store. Besides the online shopping, you can make the most out of your account by using it to pay for in-store purchases with over 73,000 GCash merchants. Enjoy the experience of going cashless when you shop; just scan the store QR code to pay with GCash when you buy food, groceries, clothes and more.

How Can You Maximize GCash?

Everyone can use GCash, whether or not they’re Globe users or have the usual bank requirements. When you’ve embraced the mobile payment service and are ready to take your experience further, then you can make the switch from a Globe prepaid sim to a postpaid line.

By subscribing to Globe Postpaid, you’ll be able to earn mobile promos, bill rebates, and points, which you can use as cash at a variety of partner stores. You can also check out GPlan with GCash, a new flexible offering that allows customers to use GCash credits for mobile and life essentials, such as data allocations, content subscriptions, GInsure coverage, and shopping vouchers

Live with the convenience of paying your bills through GCash, too. Not only will you boost your GScore, but you’ll also get more GCredit perks in no time!

How Does GCash Bridge The Gap In Financial Institutions?

GCash was awarded the Best Mobile Payment Service in the 2018 Telecom Asia Awards—and with this achievement comes a deeper significance to the country. Additionally, data from App Annie, the industry standard for mobile data and analytics, ranks GCash as the top finance app (10 million downloads within nine months) with the most number of active users among Filipinos.

In 2019, over 51 million Filipinos were found to have no bank accounts due to lack of enough money,  lack of documents, and refusal to open a bank account. Nine out of 10 locals were also found to have no access to credit cards, credit lines, or credit scores. 

However, the silver lining in this situation is that in a country of 107 million people, 73 million are mobile users, of which 67 million are online at any time of the day.

GCash bridges the gap between the banked and unbanked sectors by allowing anyone to pay for anything from bills to online and offline shopping, load for prepaid cards and sending or receiving money to and from loved ones no matter where they are in the world. Credit lines have also become available with GCash, allowing all users to make urgent transactions.

Is GCash Safe?

As a customer, you are also responsible for the safety of your account and money. Here are some tips to make sure that your account information doesn’t fall on the wrong hands:

  • Keep it to yourself! 

Never share your MPIN and OTP (One-Time-Password) to anyone! Do not trust anyone who asks for your login information such as MPINs and authentication codes. Legitimate financial institutions or representatives will never ask for these details.

  • Two is better than one!

Your account is protected by Two-Factor Authentication which serves as an added security layer to access your account. It is there to make sure that you’re the only person who can access your account. It works by sending a unique code to your GCash-registered mobile number.  

  • Think before you click!

Be careful when clicking a link that prompts you to enter your login details, especially if the website looks sketchy. Fraudsters use a common method called Phishing — this is where they use a fake website in order to get user’s account information to create fraudulent transactions.

Wait, there’s more! We also get questions like “How do I secure my GCash card?”, “Is there a way to keep my card safe?”, and many more. Find out how below!

  • Be clingy!

Always glue yourself to your debit card! Whether you are swiping it in a restaurant, paying for gas at the local station or anything that requires it to be away from you. One of the best conveniences of having a debit card is being able to pay using your card instead of cash. Being present when swiping your card prevents fraudsters from taking note of your card information.

  • Online shopping? No worries! 

Online shopping is fun, most especially when it’s sale! To avoid your card information from being compromised, make sure that the online shop that you are buying from is legitimate by conducting a few searches and checking for reviews before buying from the store.

  • Memorizing a 3-digit code? Easy as pie!

Memorize your CVV code, which is the 3-digit number at the back of your card. Your CVV (Card Verification Value) is a very important part of your card information. A good way to protect this from wandering eyes is to memorize and cover it with a “void sticker” to prevent others from having a full peep at your card information whenever you use your card! 

Can Basic GCash Receive Money?

Basic (unverified) accounts are also limited to a wallet size of ₱50,000 compared to ₱100,000 for semi-verified and fully verified accounts. Unverified accounts have a monthly incoming limit of ₱50,000 and a daily outgoing limit of ₱40,000, while fully verified users can enjoy monthly incoming and daily outgoing limits of ₱100,000.

GCash has three verification levels:

  • Basic Level. This is an unverified account with lower wallet size and spending limits. Features are limited and basic level users cannot send money or perform cash-outs.
  • Semi-Verified. You can opt for this level if you don’t want to submit a copy of your valid ID. Only a selfie is required. Your status will be valid for only one year.
  • Fully Verified. This level gives you full access to all the features of the GCash app, as well as the maximum wallet size and transaction limits.

Check out the table below for a full feature comparison between the three verification levels:

FeaturesBasic LevelSemi VerifiedFully Verified

All users regardless of verification level can also buy the GCash Mastercard but only semi-verified and verified users can use it. ATM and over-the-counter withdrawals are limited to ₱20,000 per transaction.

Important GCash Tips and Reminders

  • You can help save the environment by activating GCash Forest. For every transaction or activity, you’ll earn “green points” that will be used to plant trees in the Ipo Watershed Forest Reserve in Norzagaray, Bulacan. The more you use GCash, the more you help in saving Mother Nature!
  • On the GCash app, you can swipe from the right to launch the QR code reader. Scan the store’s QR code and enter the amount to be paid.
  • Your GCash wallet size is the total amount of transactions in a month, including cash-ins, withdrawals, bill payments, and bank transfers. So if you’ve already exceeded ₱100,000 in total transactions (the maximum wallet size for verified users) for the month, you can no longer use GCash and you’ll have to wait for the next month.
  • You can set up security questions to make your GCash account more secure. Just go to “Settings” and tap “Account Authentication” to get started.
  • You can use the same GCash account on multiple devices. However, you can’t use it at the same time on two or more devices.
  • Take care of your MPIN as it’s the password to your Gcash account. Never share it with anyone. For added protection, set up security questions in the settings.
  • GCash works on Globe and TM numbers with no data charges, so you don’t need to subscribe to an Internet data promo.

Is it Safe to Connect Bank Account to GCash?

So, is GCash safe to use? Is it safe to make transactions, transfer money, pay bills, even make investments? Yes, GCash is safe.

It’s natural to have concerns, especially those who are new with any technology. However, like any other method where you place your money like ATM, passbook, even in a ‘piggy bank or alkansya’, you need to follow safety reminders to minimize any risk of loss.

The best way to keep your GCash safe is to make sure you keep MPIN secure and never disclose it to anyone. You should be the only one who knows your PIN. MPIN is also the same PIN that you will use if you will withdraw using the GCash MasterCard.

How Much Can I Withdraw From GCash?

The maximum amount that you can transfer is ₱50,000 per transaction. A convenience fee of ₱15 pesos will be deducted in your GCash account per transaction. So, make sure you have extra funds to do this transaction.
