Filipinos can now access and do GCash app transactions while abroad

GCash continues to expand its reach internationally to serve more Filipinos, whether they are on tour or are working overseas. The country’s leader in finance app and the biggest cashless ecosystem has announced availability in 16 international markets as of this writing.  

GCash Overseas is now accessible in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Spain, Italy, Germany, Qatar, Kuwait, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Australia. Filipinos in those countries can now download the GCash app, register for an account, and use the services even if they are using non-PH SIMs or local mobile phone numbers in any of the mentioned 16 nations (and territories).  

 “We recognize the financial needs of over 13 million Filipinos living abroad,” said GCash International General Manager Paul Albano. “With GCash now available beyond the Philippines, we are responding to the needs of global Filipinos in these cashless digital economies, providing them with a safe, secure, and efficient fintech solution to send money back home.” 

Consequently, essential GCash services can now be accessed by app users in any of the 16 international markets. Those include Send Money, Bank Transfer, Buy Load, Pay Bills, Send Gifts, and GSave.  

 To reach more Overseas Filipino Workers, GCash is teaming up with Ikon Solutions Asia, Inc., a licensed recruitment agency, to ensure OFWs are equipped with much-needed digital financial services through the app.

The Philippine fintech leader has also partnered with global payments platform Alipay+. With Global Pay, GCash is now a viable channel to pay over 3 million Alipay+-enabled merchants in 17 countries and territories around the world, including Japan, South Korea, and Singapore in the Asia-Pacific region; Qatar and United Arab Emirates in the Middle East, Italy, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom in Europe, and in the United States—all with the benefits of low foreign exchange rates and zero service fees. Moreover, the service was recently integrated with the national QRs of Malaysia and South Korea, making scanning to pay even more seamless in these countries.

The company has also partnered with international payments giant Visa, providing GCash users with another cashless payment method outside of the Philippines. The new GCash Visa card offers another payment option anywhere in the world.

“We’ve enabled access to Finance through a service that’s enjoyed currently by 94 million Filipinos, and our international expansion allows us to serve millions more. We’re confident that our innovation and strategic partnerships will allow us to provide seamless financial services to Filipinos anywhere in the world. This is only the first step as we grow our presence internationally,” stated Albano.
