How to Send Money, Pay Bills, and More with GCash
"""With the introduction of mobile wallets and online payment apps, cashless transactions have gained popularity. GCash, a Globe Telecom service that was a pioneer in the Philippines' electronic payments industry, is one such mobile wallet. You can use your mobile app or e-wallet to pay your bills, send money to another person, buy cellphone data, and make cashless purchases with GCash. ,'_com-box-3','ezslot_4',183,,_('div-gpt-ad-_com-box-3-0');
GCash is superior to real cash for numerous reasons. One is ease of use. You can pay your utility bills, loans, credit card bills, insurance premiums, and even tuition fees with just a few taps on your smartphone! That is unquestionably superior to waiting in line at the cash register to pay your bills.
Security and safety are yet another reason to use GCash. You can use GCash to shop at a few malls, businesses, and other establishments, so you don't have to carry cash. Because your cash is electronically stored in your mobile wallet, there is no chance that a pickpocket will steal it. In addition, the robust security features of GCash make it nearly impossible for unsavory parties to access your account and steal your money. ,'_com-medrectangle-3','ezslot_5',191,,_('div-gpt-ad-_com-medrectangle-3-0');
For people like me who value the convenience and security of cashless transactions, GCash is an extremely useful application. Even so, for some users who are not particularly skilled or accustomed to modern technology, using a smartphone to pay bills and make purchases may appear to be challenging.
To help you understand how the platform works and simplify things for you, we've created this comprehensive GCash tutorial. You should be able to use the GCash app with confidence and a better understanding of the GCash mobile wallet after reading this guide.

The mobile app is the best way to sign up for GCash. Go to this page to continue computer-based account creation for GCash. However, because it is much simpler and quicker, we suggest registering your account with the GCash app.
First, go to the App Store or Google Play and download the GCash app.
When you open the GCash app, it will ask for permission to access your camera, contacts, storage, and device location. Select ""Ok."" On the next few steps, tap ""Allow.""
Select ""REGISTER."" Press ""NEXT"" after entering your mobile phone number.'_com-box-4','ezslot_7',193,,_('div-gpt-ad-_com-box-4-0');

Keep an eye out for the SMS-sent 6-digit authentication code. The authentication code will be detected and entered automatically by the app. Select ""SUBMIT CODE.""
Enter your email address and first and last name, as well as your birthdate. Click ""CONTINUE.""

Check the information you have. Tap ""SUBMIT"" if everything is correct. If not, press the back arrow to make adjustments.
Make your four-character mobile PIN or MPIN. Avoid using a MPIN that is easy to guess, like 1234 or your birthday. To continue, press ""SUBMIT."" 300,250], ""_com-banner-1,"");

Congratulations! Your GCash account is now up and running. You will use your MPIN every time you access your account, so keep it handy.
To sign in to your mobile wallet automatically, tap ""Proceed to Login.""

In order to take full advantage of GCash's features and benefits, the next step is to verify your account.
GCash Account Verification The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas mandates account verification in order to safeguard financial institutions and user accounts. You might be familiar with banks' and remittance centers' ""Know Your Customer"" procedures. GCash is doing the same thing by requesting identification documentation. This assists in preventing the creation of fictitious accounts for the purpose of money laundering and other criminal endeavors.
You will still be able to use GCash without having to verify your account, but you will only be able to use it for offline (over-the-counter) cash-ins, bill payments, buying loads, and QR code payments. You won't be able to make online cash-ins, send or request money, or cash out your GCash balance. Upgrade your account to fully verified status in order to take advantage of all of GCash's features.
The maximum wallet size for basic (unverified) accounts is also 50,000 yen, whereas the maximum wallet size for semi-verified and fully verified accounts is 100,000 yen. Unverified accounts have a monthly limit of 50,000 yen and a daily limit of 40,000 yen, whereas fully verified accounts have a monthly and daily limit of 100,000 yen.
GCash has three levels of verification:
Basic Class This is a fake account with a smaller wallet and lower spending limits. Users at the basic level cannot send money or make cash outs, and features are limited. Semi-Verified. If you don't want to send a copy of your valid ID, you can choose this level. All you need is a selfie. Your status will only be in effect for one year. Completely Valid. You can use every feature of the GCash app at this level, including the maximum wallet size and transaction limits.
For a comprehensive comparison of the three verification levels' features, see the table below:
