With the Enhanced Community Quarantine already on its third week, people are really feeling the pinch in their pockets and in the food supplies. Going to the bank to be able to send money to your loved ones increases your risk of getting infected plus the added burden of not having public transportation access to get to the bank easily. Luckily, there is an option available to everyone via GCash.

Powered by InstaPay, GCash has followed the initiative of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) that enables users to electronically send money through mobile wallets and internet banking facilities. With this, consumers can now enjoy GCash to bank and bank to GCash transactions.

As convenient as promised, all you need to have is internet connectivity, account name, and the account number of your receiver.

To avail of this feature, make sure that your GCash app is updated to the latest version. Then, simply login to the app and choose Send Money. After this, select Send Money to a Bank Account.

Once you find your preferred bank, you can now enter the amount of money you wish to send together with the bank account holder’s complete details. Meanwhile, before confirming your transaction, make sure that you double-check all the info as GCash will not be liable for the wrong sending of funds due to incorrect information entered by users. Good thing, the app is user-friendly and isn't hard to navigate and understand.

GCash Bank Transfer is really helpful for me. There were times when I needed to send money to my relatives, and GCash enables me to do so. Yup, you can tell me that numbers of banks now have their own apps, allowing users to experience the convenience of mobile banking. However, for me, I prefer this because I can transfer funds for free with GCash. Moreover, with the app, I no longer have to mind whether I and the receiver have the same bank or not, as it has no convenience fee.

In this age where smartphones are very powerful, make the most out of it. GCash is one of the apps that you can have to make your lifestyle more innovative. Aside from giving off cashless transactions, the app also saves you from time-eating services. True enough, it’s easy as 1-2-3!

GCash is available to Globe, TM, Smart, Sun, and Talk & Text networks. You can download the app on the Google Play Store and App Store. If you do not have GCash yet, visit to open an account and enjoy Php70 worth of freebies.
