GCash, the mobile wallet of Globe Telecom Inc. has expanded its reach to overseas Filipino workers (OFW) to be able to directly pay bills and transfer cash instantly for free for their family in the Philippines.
“GCash continues to aim to make life easier and more convenient for Filipinos wherever they are,” Winsley Bangit, chief customer officer for GCash said.
“We recognize how many families in the Philippines rely on the remittances OFWs send them. With GCash, sending money and paying for household expenses is easier for everyone, anywhere in the world, with just a press of a button,” he added.
Filipino citizens abroad, with an active Philippines roaming mobile number can start by downloading the GCash app from the Play Store or App Store. Then, they will need to create an account and have it verified—needing only a valid Philippines ID and providing their address in the Philippines.
Funding their GCash wallet abroad has never been easier through international partners across the globe.
Users may cash in directly to their own wallets through the following partners, AlipayHK (Hong Kong), Remitly (USA, Canada), Singtel Dash (Singapore), SABB (KSA), SBI Remit (Japan), Skrill (UK), PayIt (UAE), Wirebarley (S. Korea), Western Union (Worldwide), MoneyGram (Worldwide) and more.
Users will then be able to access GCash’s marketplace of products and services – all from their smartphone. Mynt online infrastructure assures users utmost security in their transactions.
There are an estimated 10 million Filipinos abroad globally, with 2.2 million of them being OFWs, all seeking to provide their families with better lives through foreign salaries, netting over ₱1.5 trillion in remittances to the Philippines in 2020.
