What is GCash?

GCash is a mobile wallet, mobile payments, and branchless banking service in the Philippines.

Mynt (formerly Globe Fintech Innovations) is a joint venture between Ant Group, an affiliate of Alibaba Group and the operator of the world's leading open digital lifestyle platform, Alipay; Ayala Group of Companies, one of the Philippines' largest business conglomerates; and Globe Telecom, one of the Philippines' largest telecommunications companies (GCash is under 917Ventures on Globe's side).

It was launched in 2004.

In the Philippines, it had 20 million active users and over 63,000 partner merchants as of 2019.

These estimates more than doubled in two years, because to the rise of digital payments in the Philippines as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, with 46 million active users and 2.5 million merchants and sellers as of August 2021, making GCash the country's undisputed mobile wallet behemoth.

GCash Account Verification

The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas requires account verification to protect financial institutions and ensure the security of user accounts.

You might be familiar with banks and remittance centers' "Know Your Customer" processes.

GCash is doing the same thing by requesting identification evidence.

This helps to prevent the creation of bogus accounts for money laundering and other illegal activities.

You can still use GCash without an account, but only for offline (over-the-counter) cash-ins, bill payments, load purchases, and QR code payments.

You won't be able to transfer or request money, cash out your GCash balance, make online cash-ins, or do any of the other things listed above.

It's highly advised that you update your account to fully verified status in order to take benefit of all of GCash's services.

Basic (unverified) accounts are similarly limited to a wallet capacity of ₱50,000, however semi-verified and fully verified accounts can have up to ₱100,000.

Unverified accounts have a monthly incoming restriction of ₱50,000 and a daily outbound limit of ₱40,000, but properly verified accounts have monthly and daily incoming limits of ₱100,000.

GCash Verification Levels:

  • Basic level: — This is a new account with a lower wallet and fewer spending limits. The features are limited, and basic users are unable to transfer money or make cash withdrawals.
  • Semi-Verified: — If you don't want to send a copy of your valid ID, you can choose this level. All that is required is a selfie. Your status will only be good for a year.
  • Fully verified: — This level grants you complete access to the GCash app's functionality, including the maximum wallet size and transaction limits.

Account verification is a quick and easy process that takes only a few minutes.
