(Updated 09/29/2021) If you are sending or transferring money and there are no available money remittance centers near your intended recipient, it is preferable to send it via GCash so that they can receive the funds as soon as possible.

They can cash out the money whenever they want from partner remittance centers once they receive it. A recipient must have a GCash account to do so. They can register using the app, which can be downloaded from the Play Store (for Android devices) or the App Store (for iOS devices) (for iOs devices).

As of this writing, five pawnshops offer this service: Palawan Pawnshop, RD Pawnshop, Tambunting, Villarica, and Jaro Pawnshop.

What is the service fee for transferring or sending money?

According to GCash, sending, transferring, and cashing in money through the pawnshops or over-the-counter outlets mentioned in this article (Palawan, RD Pawnshop, Tambunting, Villarica, and Jaro Pawnshop) is FREE "until you reach a monthly threshold of Php 8,000."

Once you reach this limit, a 2% service fee will be applied to each transaction. The fee will be deducted automatically from the amount you wish to transfer to a GCash account. A service fee of 2% per transaction applies to all GCash-partnered over-the-counter outlets.

For example, if you want to send money worth Php 1,500 but have already transacted Php 7,000 for the month of August, you will be charged an additional Php 500. This is due to the fact that sending Php 1,500 to a GCash account will bring you up to the monthly threshold of Php 8,000.

Only amounts greater than Php 8,000 will be subject to the 2% service fee. As a result, the calculation will be: 500 x 2% = Php 10 service fee.

Where to cash out money from a GCash account?

Your target recipient/beneficiary may cash out the money you sent to their GCash account by going to any partner outlets. To cash out, a recipient must be a verified GCash account holder. They must log in to the app and then look for the "Cash Out" option under fund management.

From there, they can view the partner outlets where they can cash out their money. A recipient may also check the list here for the partner outlets of GCash providing a cash-out service:

Conclusion

Transferring or sending money has never been easier because there are so many options available.

Individuals who want to transfer money from pawnshops like Palawan to GCash must provide the recipient's GCash account and ensure that it is fully verified so that they can receive the desired amount.

Aside from pawnshops, some small retail shops in outlying areas offer GCash services, allowing customers to send money to loved ones via the app. I t bridges the gap for those in remote areas who do not have access to money remittance services.

Nonetheless, everyone should be free to select the services they desire, such as transferring or sending money from a pawnshop to a GCash account. —iTacloban
