GCash's vision is to make cashless transactions for just about everything, even for micro businesses.

It’s the generation to go cashless.

Imagine walking inside a store and finding the perfect bag that you like – only, you don’t have enough cash along with you. So you go home and wallow in despair over the bag that’s possibly purchased by someone else by then. But you can turn this scenario the other way around, only if you know your options.

Living in the digital world has made millennials smarter with their choices. With the rise of eCommerce, more and more people are switching to online transactions. Travel ticket sales? Limited edition top from your favorite brand? Restaurant GCs to treat your family? All available in the internet. It’s as easy as one click and it’s yours. Only, some of these require a credit card, and not everyone can afford to get one.

It’s not always the case, though! Here’s a heaven-sent thing called “mobile wallet” – yes, a virtual holder of your precious cash that’s convenient to bring anywhere you go. So even if you leave your house with just your phone in your pocket, you can freely shop ‘til you drop! One example of this is GCash, and if you’re hesitant to try it out, here are some of the benefits you can get if you go cashless with GCash – we assure it’s a better alternative for you!

  1. Spending will reap you rewards. Ever heard of rebates? With GCash, a purchase isn’t really a guilt trip. Buying load (available for all networks) gets you a 5% return, so you save more for bigger spend!
  2. It’s easy to send money. Your little bro won’t need to worry if he forgot his wallet at home, as you can choose to just send him money via mobile. Easy!
  3. Hassle-free shopping. You have more than one options when you’re out for your retail therapy -- pay by scanning QR codes in participating merchants or simply use GCash American Express Virtual Pay (virtual card) or GCash Mastercard (physical card) for online and offline sprees. And oh, you can also book cinemas seats minus the long lines, too!
  4. Effortless bills payment. Pay for utilities, telcos, credit cards, and government fees, and many more!
  5. You can withdraw cold, hard cash. In times you’re badly in need of some cash, just look for an ATM and withdraw money with GCash Mastercard. Your day – saved!
  6. You obtain what you put in. The ratio value of money and GCash is 1:1. So no matter how much your stash is with GCash, it’s also the amount you have virtually, safe and secure!
