Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a new virus.
The disease causes respiratory illness (like the flu) with symptoms such as a cough, fever, and in more severe cases, difficulty breathing. This virus triggered countries including the Philippines to do Enhanced Community Quarantines or lockdowns almost everywhere.

Because of the lockdown and the guidelines in place, we are encouraged to #StayAtHome and practice social distancing which prompted businesses to close down until the situation is better. A few of these establishments are remittance and pera padala centers which have been traditionally used by Filipinos to send money to their loved ones.

This is crucial to those who regularly use these services to provide for their families in faraway places and especially during this crisis. Everyone who knows me knows that I've been trying to live a Cashless life since I've started using GCash.

GCash started as a mobile money remittance solution back in 2004 and has since been updated to offer more services and are available now to everyone with a mobile phone regardless of the service provider(Smart/Globe/Sun/TM/etc).


One of the features that solve the issues involving the need for money remittances or sending money to your loved ones during these trying times is GCASH SEND MONEY.


Let's talk about how you can practice social distancing and being able to #StayAtHome while helping your loved ones with this particular GCash Feature.

There are 2 Ways you can send money through the GCash App.

How Does It Work?

GCash users get to have a digital wallet which they can fund directly or receive money from others. To send money to your friends and family's GCash Wallets:


  1. Open and Login to Your GCash App and Select SEND MONEY

  4. You can leave a note as well and then tap CONFIRM 
  5.  See the confirmation message and also you will receive a text confirmation about this transaction. 


To Transfer from your GCash Wallet to Another Bank Account(also to send money to another GCash Account):

1. Login to your GCash App and tap on Send Money

2.) Select Send To Bank

3. Choose the bank of the account you're gonna send money to

4. Enter necessary details like amount, Account Name and Account Number then click NEXT

5. Wait for the transaction request screen to be shown.
6. Wait for the text message confirmation that the transaction is successful.
7. You now have sent money from your GCash to a bank account!


Do you even use this feature?

Personally, I've been using this ever since it saved me when I had an ATM Card Issue which you can read here. It has been my go-to service whenever I find myself without any cash and have to pay someone or send money to my family for bills, groceries, etc.
It is so fast and convenient that I pretty much recommend it to everyone I know and some have actually been using it today! 

Real-time transfers, no hidden fees or charges unlike other financial apps and best of all, it saves you the time to go out and go to the banks and help you #StayAtHome, practice social distancing and prevent the spread of COVID-19.

How can I use this awesome service?

Most people think that GCash is only for Globe users. It used to be, but now it is open to all NETWORKS! Signing up is easy!
