Now that a lot of businesses sell their goods and services online, ways and means have been innovated to make the lives of sellers and their customers much easier. And we are not just talking about big time businesses here. As we know, there are already thousands (and counting!) of active online sellers sprawling across social media networks most especially in Facebook and Multiply.
From lesser known pre-loved stuff (slightly used/vintage clothing and other re-usable items) sellers to famous multinational brands, they all share same goal now, and that is to capture their target market with their attractive social media presence.
One way to maintain a steady online following is by being flexible enough to accept various modes of payment. These include bank deposits and many types of money transfers. But I noticed that all this time, Globe Telecom’s Gcash, as a mode of transferring cash has become more popular to online sellers and clients. Transfers and even payment of utility bills can be done via a text message from your Globe number fast and easy. With Gcash, your phone becomes a virtual wallet which you can reload anytime at any Globe Business Center or Globe Gcash outlet in the country. It is also available internationally and known as ‘Gcash Remit’ where money can be sent to and from the Philippines. Senders can advise their loved ones to pick up cash from any location in the Philippines; and they also enjoy free text notification.
As an online seller myself, I have been using GCASH for years now, and I can say that it helps me close my transactions fast. Also, it gives me more freedom in managing my cash flow well.
Here are the basic fees for sending and receiving Globe GCash:
TRANSACTION SERVICE FEES
CASH-IN TO SELF – FREE
CASH-IN TO OTHERS – P20 for every P1000 and a fraction thereof
CASH-OUT – P20 for every P1000 and a fraction thereof
SEND MONEY (P2P) – P10 for every P1000 and a fraction thereof
PAY BILLS – FREE
BUY LOAD – FREE

amazing ways to make the payments or transaction be faster and safer..i have heard about this all the time and glad you have share your knowledge a bout this
Gcash sounds like the most convenient mode of payment now considering the fees are quite reasonable.
Gcash is my favorite mode of payment for my online purchases too! It is more convenient than bank deposits since globe outlets are located at mall and operate at mall hours 🙂
This is a very informative post. I haven’t tried this mode of payment before. I need to check it out. Thanks for sharing.
I agree with your observation, since the advent of these payment mode specially Gcash, consumers’ lives become convenient and hassle-free doing purchases.
Good for globe subscribers.
I still don’t quite understand the concept of GCash. I haven’t used one since I don’t live in the Philippines but during our visits back home, it would be nice to carry less cash and pay bills and merchandise using GCash without the fear of getting robbed.
I know it’s similar to Paypal, but the whole transfer of funds to and from the mobile baffles me. Do you put a load in your mobile or GCash also has a card you can use? Hmmmmm…. I need to do further research on this one.
Yes, you can load up your Globe Gcash wallet at Globe branches or at their outlets. They have recently introduced a Gcash Card. Check it here for more info: https://www.gcashonline.net/gcashcard/v3/
I heard about their service but I am a smart user and there was only like a short time that I have used Globe, anyway I don’t also used the Smart service same as the GLobe service. But i didn’t expect as well that it is this easy and affordable too.
My friend also told me about this! I am a globe subscriber too so beneficial talaga to for me 🙂
That’s good to know that you can pay some bills on online.Never use this yet, but I will check for my mom maybe it will be a big help for her.
I have no idea how this works. The last time I have used a Globe network and that was for a Globe tattoo usb was when I last vacationed back home. I often hear my older sister talks about Gcash, maybe it is this thing that she was imparting. I better let her read your post then. Thanks for sharing! 🙂
I have used the service umpteen times in the past for some of my online purchases. It’s smooth-sailing; no long queues unlike when I make the payment through bank deposits.
I’ve been hearing about Gcash but i haven’t tried it yet, maybe if i have to made a purchase online i will try 🙂
nice to know that gcash is getting better, i used them back nung andyan pa kami sa ebay transactions and its so easy and handy. 🙂
isn’t that neat? I really like the idea…so convenient!
It’s good to know that there were several services that you can do for no charge at all. Balance inquiry, for example should be free all the time…this is nice
GCash has been really helpful to many now! 🙂
Even big companies accepts GCash for payments like 2GO and the likes! ^_^
I’m a GCash user myself!
