  2. Hi! I really need help in adding money from BDO bank to Gcash. Upon following the steps BDO app> Send money > Transfer to local account > G Xchange is not available option for “Destination account.”

    Where to transfer funds using BDO app? Thanks

    1. Hi, i have the same problem as you encounter.have you already check how can we transfer using bdo online..last may 23 i just transfer and i didnt encounter any problem.but today i just check it was not on the list…

  3. The article may need updating. I ‘ve been Cashing-in through the machines of Mercury and I noticed that unlike before, 2% is now being deducted. It wasn’t like this about 2 weeks ago. Maybe there is now a limit to how much you can load before a fee is implemented. I have been loading the same amount as before so I was surprised.

    1. We’ve already updated the article to show the latest cash-in fees. Thanks for the heads up!

  4. Would you know if there is a problem with Metrobank app – I’ve been trying to transfer funds from my bank to GCash but it does not allow me to transfer. I believe my MBTC app is okay because I tried transferring to another bank and it works okay. But with Gcash – the app keeps crashing.

  5. I received advise from office of Makati Mayot that as a Makatizen Card holder I will receive an amount thru the card and gcash. How do I transfer the amount from my Makatizen card to my GCash wallet?

    1. Just to clarify: Do you want to transfer the money from your Makatizen card to your Gcash account? Because from what we’ve heard, the economic relief can be withdrawn from either Gcash or the Makatizen card. No need to bother with the transfer if your only goal is to get the cash. However, if you insist on transferring it to Gcash, you may do so by enrolling the said card to Gcash. Simply open your Gcash app, click the hamburger icon on the upper left corner, select My Linked Accounts, choose My Bank Cards and then follow the instructions to enroll your card. Afterward, go to Cash In, select your enrolled bank card and then proceed with your cash in transaction.

    1. Can I cash in my gcash aacct on any normal convenience store?
      I mean on a regular store in a barangay?
      Thanks for your response.

      1. No, only through Gcash partner outlets listed on your Gcash app.

      2. Yes only if that normal convenience store also using gcash aswell ,you can ask to transfer/send money from his/her gcash then you can pay it

    1. You mean from Security Bank to GCash? Last time I checked, Security Bank is not one of the cash-in options. However, you can transfer funds (cash-out) from GCash to Security Bank.

      1. How? (Security Bank to GCash Cash-in)

        Because I don’t see that option from Security Bank online.


      2. no! you can not.. there is no security bank option on the cash in page of gcash. there is no gcash option either on the security bank OL app to transfer funds. Gcash is not part of the list of options security bank have when transferring funds to another bank.

    2. Just link your security bank to gcash ,link my card- put the info -..then you can cash in using your link card …
