How to Load Gcash Wallet and Where to Cash-in Funds?

It is easy to load a GCash wallet because many options are available, such as over-the-counter and online banking. Know how to load GCash here.

(UPDATED) Adding funds to your GCash wallet has never been easier, thanks to the numerous partner outlets/stores of one of the Philippines' most popular mobile banking apps.

GCash users can load their wallets at partner stores such as Puregold, Robinsons, Gaisano, and SM Group; online banks such as BPI, Unionbank, Metrobank, and RCBC; and global partners such as Paypal, Alipay, Xoom, and bWallet.

Meanwhile, BPI is preferable because there are no fees associated with loading or adding funds to your GCash wallet or account, making it more convenient to use. Users can also visit GCash load stations or over-the-counter locations located throughout the country.

Once you have funds in your GCash, you can begin using Gcash's unique features, such as buying load, paying bills, and making online payments.
