Perhaps one of the most popular e-wallet apps these days is GCash – that app that literally turns your phone into a wallet because you can purchase items, whether online or at a store, and pay with money from your GCash account.
The GCash app can be downloaded by any type of smartphone. And any mobile number registered in the Philippines can use the app (back in the day, only Globe Telecom subscribers can use GCash). Once registered and properly verified by the GCash system, the user can send and receive money using the app. They can also use it to pay for their purchases (online or otherwise), utility bills, loans, and prepaid mobile load.
The good news is that PSAHelpline.ph also accepts GCash payments for PSA certificate orders made through the website. It is a safe and convenient alternative to going out just to pay for your orders, especially during these uncertain times.
What are the features and benefits of GCash?
- GCash may now be used by all mobile numbers; it is no longer exclusive only to Globe subscribers.
- You may cash-in to GCash account from your bank’s mobile app (if it supports that feature) or at any of their over the counter payment partners such as Ministop, Alfamart, Cebuana, and a whole lot more.
- GCash does not charge you with a convenience fee on top of the actual amount to be paid; such that if you ordered one copy of your PSA birth certificate at the cost of P365, only that amount will be deducted from your GCash wallet after you pay.
