Leading mobile wallet and digital payment solutions provider GCash is extending a new service called GCash Padala.
GCash Padala is a more affordable, faster and easier way for Filipinos without an e-wallet account to receive money instantly – and free of charge – anywhere in the Philippines via the GCash app. It boasts one of the lowest remittance rates, charging up to as low as a 1 percent remittance fee with a minimum send of P500.
But in an effort to extend much needed help to Filipinos amid the Enhanced Community Quarantine, GCash is waiving all Padala fees until August 20, 2021.
“We hope our new service brings more Filipinos the ease and convenience of sending money during this ECQ,” said Winsley Bangit, GCash Chief Customer Officer.
“GCash Padala aims to make everything Pinabilis, Pinamura, at Pinadali for users and recipients alike. Hopefully, this also encourages those who are still reluctant to use financial technology to download the GCash app and experience the convenience and ease it continues to bring many Filipinos here and around the world,” he added.
To claim the transaction, recipients just need to present one valid ID through any of the 2,000 GCash Padala partners located nationwide like Posible, Go VIP Center, Tambunting, Panalo Express, and local authorized “pera outlet” sari-sari stores too.
To access the service, the sender logs into the GCash app, selects “Send Money,” and taps the “GCash Padala” option. A user interface pops up next where the sender will key in the intended recipient’s full name, mobile number, and the amount of money to be sent. Afterwards, the sender has to confirm the transaction and pay for it using existing funds from his GCash account to send the money successfully. A notification with reference number of the transaction, and other detailed information, will be sent via text message to both the sender and the recipient in real-time as soon as the process has been completed.
