How to get Gcash
First, you need to download the GCash app from the Google Play Store or the App Store and register with your mobile number. You can use any network, but Globe and TM users get zero-rated access to GCash. You also need to verify your identity by submitting a valid ID and a selfie.
Next, you need to cash in to your GCash wallet. You can do this by linking your online banking account or debit card, or by visiting any of the GCash Padala or Pera outlets in Singapore. You can find the nearest outlet using the GCash app or website.
Once you have funds in your GCash wallet, you can start using it for various transactions. You can send money to other GCash users in the Philippines or Singapore, or transfer money to over 40 banks in the Philippines instantly. You can also pay bills and fees to over 400 billers in the Philippines, including utilities, telecoms, credit cards, loans, government, and travel.
How GCash is Expanding Its Reach
GCash is not only available in the Philippines, but also in other countries where there are many Filipinos living and working. GCash Overseas is a service that allows users in Japan, Australia, Italy, and soon in the US to sign up with the mobile wallet without the need for a Philippine SIM. They can then use GCash to send money to their loved ones in the Philippines, as well as to pay bills and buy load.
GCash is also available in tourist-dense areas and establishments such as Universal Studios Singapore, Duty-Free shops at the airport, and for Comfort Delgro taxis. You can use Gcash at these shops by scanning their QR codes or tapping your GCash Mastercard.
GCash aims to provide convenient and accessible financial services to Filipinos everywhere, as well as to enable cross-border payments and e-commerce. With GCash, you can enjoy fast and easy payments with just your smartphone.
