GCash simplifies remittances for Filipinos abroad

Overseas Filipinos can send money directly to the GCash accounts of their loved ones back home through over 70 official remittance partners.

GCash, the Philippines’ leading finance app, has expanded its services to make it easier and more secure for Filipinos abroad to send money back home. Through partnerships with over 70 official remittance providers, including Western Union, Ria, Remitly, and MoneyGram, GCash offers instant and direct transfers to the GCash accounts of their families and loved ones in the Philippines.

“By making GCash accessible to more Filipinos abroad, managing finances is now easier from afar. This helps push our vision of financial inclusion for all Filipinos, wherever they may be in the world,” said Ren-Ren Reyes, president and CEO of GCash mobile wallet operator G-Xchange, Inc.

Expanded Global Reach

Following approval from the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas, GCash has fully expanded its international reach. Filipinos in 16 countries—including the US, Canada, Italy, the UK, Australia, Japan, the UAE, Qatar, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Spain, Germany, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Singapore—can now use international mobile numbers to sign up and use the GCash app.

Enhanced Services

The expanded GCash services offer migrants and overseas Filipinos better control over their finances. In addition to free real-time money transfers, GCash users can pay bills directly on the app, including utilities, taxes, and tuition. The app also allows users to buy load for people back home, facilitating easy communication through messages and international calls.
