How To Get and Use Globe GCASH

I've made a blog post about transferring your money from PayPal to your GCASH. Someone asked me how to enable Globe GCASH in her phone. I will try to teach her in this post. And if you also want to know, just keep on reading.

GLOBE GCASH allows any Globe or TM (Touch Mobile) user to send and receive money, buy prepaid load, pay bills, and do a lot of other money-related transactions, anytime, anywhere using SMS.

Globe’s flagship M-Commerce service, was born from a simple goal of transforming a mobile phone into a wallet. With its launch in October 2004, GCASH has effectively given Globe and TM subscribers access to a cashless and cardless method of facilitating money remittance, donations, loan settlement, disbursement of salaries or commissions, and payment of bills, products and services, with just a text message. GCash won the “Best Mobile Messaging Service” in the 2005 GSM Awards.

To register for GCASH, type
REG <4-digit PIN/mother’s maiden name/first name/last name/address> to 2882
Make sure that your First Name and Last Name match the information that appears in any valid ID of yours. This is important for future GCASH transactions.
After you’ve registered, you will need to load your mobile wallet with GCASH. This is done via a cash-in transaction which is the process of converting your cash to GCASH at a Globe Center or at any accredited GCASH partner. (Most 7-Eleven branches are accredited Gcash outlets)
To send GCASH, type
AMOUNT <4-digit PIN> and send to 2882+10 digit cellphone number of the recipient
Sample GCASH confirmation message received by sender:
You have sent 2,950.00 GCASH to Carol Sinel 09178569645 on 7/23/2008 12:31 PM. Your new balance is 2,050.00. Ref. no. 294087757.
Sample GCASH confirmation message received by the?recipient:
You have received 2,950.00 GCASH from Carol Sinel 09178569645. Your new balance is 7,950.00. Ref. No. 294087757.
To buy load using GCASH, type
LOAD <amount> <4-digit PIN> and send to 2882, if you’re loading your self.
If you are loading for someone else, send to 2882+10 digit cellphone number of the recipient.
To pay bills using GCASH, type
BILLPAY <amount> <4-digit PIN> <institution code> <account reference number> and send to 2882
To use GCASH to pay at SM Malls, type
PAY SM <store code cashier> <amount to be paid> and send to 2318.
The store code is unique to each cashier.
To donate to charitable institutions using GCASH, type
DONATE <amount> <4-digit PIN> <institution code> and send to 2882
To check your balance, type
BAL <4-digit PIN> and send to 2882
To check last transaction, type
TXN <4-digit PIN> and send to 2882
To change 4-digit PIN, type
CHG <old 4-digit PIN> <new 4-digit PIN> and send to 2882
To suspend account, type
SUS <4-digit PIN> and send to 2882
To re-activate account, type
ACT <4-digit PIN> and send to 2882
Converting your GCASH to cash is called a cash out transaction. It is done at a Globe Center or at any accredited GCASH partner. GCASH has a maximum transaction limit of P40,000 per day and a maximum transaction limit of P100,000 per month (both for incoming and outgoing transactions). This is to comply with the Anti-Money Laundering Act.


I hope this helps, Ate Ems!  ;)

Is Gcash available also for raoming services? I doubt it but if it does, it would be great.

I've already tried Gcash in one of my ebook purchase, It's so easy only that some attendant of the Globe Center lacks the ability to persuade their client to stay on the line while their service is not yet available,

oh Marie, read it very intently since i wonder if i can create paypal for my father in the Philippines, however, he usually resist any technology, i will share this to my niece though and let her explain to her lolo, if tatay understands or gets it, then, may have to use paypal since the transaction fee for sending money can be very disappointing. however, if he can't, i have no choice, haha. anyway, thanks for this, i know a lot others would find this very helpful too.

I have heard of GCASH when I was still in the Philippines, but it was not widely used back then. I am glad to hear that, many people are now using it to transfer money.
