What Can You Do With GCash?

GCash takes convenience to an entirely different level.

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 its achievement comes a much deeper significance to the country.

In 2018, 66 percent of Filipinos were known to have no bank accounts because of bank inaccessibility and lack of documents. Nine out of 10 locals were also found to have no access to credit cards, credit lines or credit scores. The silver lining in this situation, however, is that in a country 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.
