Dreaming of traveling without the constant jingle of coins or the hassle of swiping your credit card? This may sound like a daring leap into the unknown, but mobile payments service app GCash has made it all possible.
GCash invites everyone, especially globetrotters, to the era of limitless travel unburdened by bulky wallets. Its Global Pay feature, powered by Alipay and supervised by the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas, offers not just the convenience of leaving coins and bills behind but also wrapping you up in an extra layer of security.
How to Use GCash Global Pay
To pay, simply open your GCash app and tap the QR option on the bottom navigation bar. Choose Pay abroad with Alipay+ to generate your QR or barcode, and then you can show it to the cashier for a quick scan. It's that simple!
You may also view, download, or share your receipt that shows the total amount paid, real-time exchange rate, and reference number.
Participating Countries and Merchants
Whether you're on a shopping spree, indulging in delightful cuisines, or taking care of transportation and daily essentials, Global Pay has got you covered — just keep an eye out for the Alipay+ sign.
Alipay+ is your passport to seamless payments in Japan, Singapore (must be a Filipino GCash user), South Korea, and Europe.
Worried about the exchange rate? Fret not! GCash ensures you get the lowest rates without any extra service fee, letting you save more while you enjoy your #travelgoals. And the good news keeps rolling — GCash Global Pay is accepted at various hotspots like 7-Eleven, Changi Airport, Coach, Daiso, Family Mart, Jumbo Group, and Lawson, to name a few.
