Lining up is even harder to do in the age of COVID-19 and lockdowns, so it’s great that mobile wallets like GCash allow us to easily pay online with just a few taps. Now GCash can be used for even more online transactions after expanding its network to more than 600 partner billers nationwide.
“With the expansion of our biller network, we are enabling more Filipinos to have access to convenient financial services such as paying for their essentials, utilities, credit cards, insurance, telecoms, transportation, and a lot more. Our goal is to continuously add to the pool of billers, and be able to cover more needs of our users,” said GCash President and CEO Martha Sazon.
Currently, GCash is in partnership with a number of key billers for Filipinos, such as Meralco, Meralco Kuryente Load, Maynilad, and Manila Water. GCash also covers electronic payments for telecommunications billers, such as Globe Postpaid, and government billers, namely, Pag-IBIG, BIR, NBI and SSS-PRN.
With the growing demand, the app has now added to their list of billers for different categories. For loans specifically, GCash includes AppendPay, Billease, Unionbank Quickloans, City Savings Bank, and Malayan Bank. Paying for insurance is also hassle-free with these billers: Singlife, Generali, and Standard Insurance.
The biller network also includes schools, such as International School Manila, STI Education Services Group, Inc, Manuel L. Quezon University, and PHINMA University. For real estate, SMDC is now part of the roster of billers.
More than just billers in the greater metro, GCash has also expanded with new regional billers in its network. For utilities, these include TEI, TARELCO1, Calbayog Water, South Luzon Water, Calumpit Water, Metro Cotabato Water, Bicol One Broadband Services, SAMELCO, Metro Iloilo Water, and Metro Roxas Water District.
GCash has also tapped several education sectors, namely Bataan State University, Bulacan State University, Malayan Colleges Mindanao, University of Mindanao, and Unibersidad de Zamboanga. Cooperatives in the regions are easily accessible on GCash, too, including Benguet Cooperative, Sorosoro Ibaba Development Cooperative, Holy Cross Savings and Credit Cooperative, San Jose Del Monte Savings and Credit Cooperative, and CEBU CFI COOP.
Moreover, some local government units have also joined GCash’s biller network, including the Province of Bataan, Parañaque City, Manila City, Cauayan City, Lapu-Lapu City, Balanga City, and Batangas City.
