Filipinos traveling to Italy, Japan and Australia can now pay their purchases using the Ayala Group’s mobile wallet, GCAsh, with an international SIM card.
Globe launched Thursday GCash Oveseas, allowing some 10 million Filipinos living abroad to take advantage of the services of the ewallet using international SIMs.
Once they’re fully verified, Filipinos overseas regardless of their SIM card can begin signing up for GCash and support their families back home by sending money for free (GCash-to-GCash), paying for bills on time, and instantly buying them load credits with just a few taps on the app.
The full launch of GCash Overseas is targeted later this year.
GCash has been aggressively expanding overseas through its partnership with global payments platform, Alipay+.
GCash can be used to pay in select merchants in South Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Qatar, United Kingdom, France, Germany, and Italy.
It offers its users a wide variety of accessible financial products and services, such as Send Money, Buy Load, Pay Bills, GSave, GInsure, and GInvest.
