Send money through GCash; Here’s how to do it

For many of us, our lives have temporarily come to a grinding halt when the enhanced quarantine was put into effect to control the spread of the COVID-19 virus. This means people cannot go out, and for some, cannot send money to loved ones through traditional remittance methods such as pera padala centers.

Thankfully, you can send money or transfer funds using GCash without going out of your house. Through the Send Money feature, you can use your mobile phones to send money for free to GCash, e-wallet or bank accounts anywhere in the Philippines.

With GCash, you can enjoy hassle free cashless transactions. I have personally used it to pay for in-store purchases, buy prepaid load, and transfer funds to GCash and bank accounts.

You can download the GCash app on Google Play and the Apple App Store. Opening a GCash account is free.
