Convert and Transfer Money from PayPal to GCash

GCash is a virtual wallet in the Philippines that lets you pay for items, send money, buy load and even pay your bills using your phone anytime, anywhere. GCash App is an online service of Globe Telecom, one of the two major telecom companies in the country, and has made financial transactions for over 20 million registered users. One of its major services today is transferring money to GCash from your bank account and even your PayPal account.

PayPal is one of the biggest and most reliable online payment systems in the world. It lets you pay and be paid locally and internationally. Like me, I rely on PayPal to handle payments sent to me abroad. But because Paypal Mastercard is still not available in the Philippines, Filipinos like me still need to find other ways to withdraw funds from PayPal. This is where GCash can come in really handy.

In this article, let me walk you through how you can convert and transfer money from your PayPal account to your GCash App in a few very easy steps.

You don't have a GCash account yet? You can simply click here to register to make the most of all their services whenever and wherever you are in the Philippines and even earn 50php upon registration.
