Are you working cities away and don’t know how to send money to your family? Wondering what remittance services to use that you can trust with zero cost?
Good news! Filipinos can now transfer and remit money anywhere and anytime within the Philippines without any cost. Yes, you heard that right! No cost at all! Yay!
Here in the Philippines, remittance plays a big part in many Filipino families and because of this, money transfer services were made available to many. But most of these service providers have fees (some are higher) for each transfer transaction. This is now about to change because of the GCash app.
GCash app is the largest mobile wallet here in the Philippines which is operated by Mynt. Sending and receiving money within the country is made more accessible, faster, convenient, and free! That’s why I love to use my GCash app on a daily basis. I use GCash not only to send and receive money but also in paying bills, shopping for groceries for our daily needs, and purchasing online. It is really convenient! And reloading my account is so easy!
In a few taps on your mobile phone, you can enjoy the free remittance service from GCash. The steps are simple like A-B-C and 1-2-3. How? Here are the steps:
- Create an account through the GCash app or your Facebook Messenger.
- Fund your GCash wallet at any of their GCash Partner Outlets nationwide. For me, I often use 7Eleven and any Globe center here in my city. You can also transfer funds from a bank or Paypal account to your GCash wallet.
- Tap on the “Send Money” icon on your app, key in the desired amount and mobile number then tap “Next”. You can also transfer money through Facebook Messenger at zero cost for both sender and
- Check all the details and if it’s all set, tap “Confirm”.
The money will instantly be sent to the receiver in real-time through the GCash App (or Facebook Messenger). Receivers may choose to remit it anytime at any Bancnet ATM using their GCash Mastercard or over-the-counter during business hours in any GCash Partner Outlets near them.
The goal of this free remittance service from GCash aims to improve the standard of the Filipinos who don’t have a bank account. It is really amazing that they provide the Filipinos with a convenient and accessible way to send and receive money.
