Learn how to transfer your PayPal balance to your GCash account in four easy steps.

A Convenient Option

Getting your earnings via PayPal can be both fun and frustrating at the same time. It always feels very fulfilling to receive revenue over the platform, but sometimes it can be difficult to make use of these earnings—especially for those of us in the Philippines, where the use of PayPal can be somewhat limited. Thankfully, there is now a mobile app called GCash that we can use to withdraw our earnings from PayPal and use them to make purchases, pay bills, and send money to others.

In this article, we will go over what GCash is and how to transfer your PayPal balance into your mobile wallet so you can use your money.

What Is GCash?

To give you a brief idea, GCash is a service by Globe (one of the leading telecommunication networks in the Philippines) that eventually evolved into an app. It's basically a digital wallet through which you can transfer funds to peers, pay bills, and buy prepaid loads.

The good thing about using GCash as a way to withdraw your PayPal balance is that they don't charge anything. Also, there is currently no minimum amount required to make a transfer. I find this very useful because I used to have to wait for my PayPal balance to reach P7,000 just so I could avoid the P50 bank-transfer fee. With GCash, I can do the transfer immediately for free.

Another thing I noticed is that the transfer happens in real time. Typically, when withdrawing via a bank, it takes me a total of five to seven days to receive my transfer from PayPal. With the GCash app, the earnings get transferred immediately.

4 Easy Steps to Transfer Your PayPal Balance to Your GCash Wallet

To ensure a smooth understanding of these procedures, I've provided a general outline of the process below, followed by a more detailed explanation of each step in the sections that follow. If you happen to already be familiar with any of the steps, feel free to skip over them and move on to the sections that are relevant to your specific situation.

  1. Create a GCash account.
  2. Link your PayPal account to your GCash wallet and authorize transfers.
  3. Transfer PayPal funds to your GCash wallet.
  4. Use your GCash wallet to pay for your needs.

1. Create a GCash Account

The first and most vital step is for you to create a GCash account. If you don’t have one already, you can download the app on your phone and register from there. Note that you can only register via your mobile phone since you will be redirected automatically to either the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store. The registration steps are very easy to follow. You just need to provide basic information like your name, occupation, and address.

Once you have set up your account, the next step is to authorize GCash to transact with PayPal on your behalf. There is a built-in feature in the app that allows you to do this. All you need to do is to click on My Account and then select PayPal.

The app will then ask you to input your PayPal email address. Upon selecting Proceed, you will be redirected to the PayPal website within the app, where you'll input your PayPal password. Click on the Authorize button to confirm.

After this, you’ll receive an email from PayPal letting you know that you've successfully authorized transactions with GCash. You are now almost ready to transfer your PayPal balance to your GCash wallet. If you are having any difficulty following this procedure, check out the images above to assist you in this step. Tap on the thumbnails to toggle between the images.

3. Transfer Paypal Funds to Your GCash Wallet

We're almost there!

The next step is to select Cash In and then PayPal to GCash. Here, you'll enter the amount you want to transfer. PayPal will then instantly transfer it to your GCash wallet. Again, feel free to navigate through the photos above to assist you in transferring your PayPal balance to your GCash wallet.

It's important to note that as of May 2019, only PHP balances can be transferred from Paypal to GCash. Hence, if your PayPal balance is not already listed in terms of PHP, you may need to use the balance converter within PayPal before cashing in. This also explains why you won't see non-PHP balances when you use the in-app feature of GCash.

4. Use Your GCash Wallet to Pay for Your Needs

Since the crediting is done instantly, you can immediately use the funds to pay your bills, transfer money, and more. To pay a bill, select the Pay Bills icon on the home screen, then choose from the list of merchants with whom you transact.

Normally, you will find a few credit card companies and utility companies (such as Meralco). There are also a handful of stores and restaurants within the country that now accept payment via GCash, so you can use your balance at those as well.

Questions & Answers

Question: Why is GCash not letting me cash-in via my PayPal? I reached out to Paypal, and they told me that my account is in good status.

Answer: When did you try cashing in? I did one just recently, and it was successful. Is your GCash verified? Maybe that can be the reason. Though I do believe this facility is available even prior to verification.

Question: I was able to cash-in my Gcash from Paypal. I saw the transaction history confirming this transfer. However, when I checked, my Gcash balance did not reflect the transfer. What should I do?

Answer: First, you might want to refresh the app. Gcash system often goes into maintenance, so there can be glitches.

If that still doesn't work, you can check whether your Paypal got deducted. If it did, you can take screenshots as well as the transaction history and send these to Customer Service.

These are the only solutions I can think of regarding this matter.

Question: I can't link my Paypal to GCash. What do I need to do?

Answer: You may try to apply any of these solutions:

-Remove any existing permissions/autherization of Gxchange in your Paypal. Then, try to redo the whole process.

-Ensure that the name matches for your GCash and Paypal.

Hope this fixes the problem.

Question: How much is the maximum amount I can cash into GCash from Paypal?

Answer: I haven't read anything about limits for this, but the general limit of P50,000 maximum cash in per day may apply and maximum P100,000 total cash in for the month.

Question: Can I cash out a physical money after transferring my money from Paypal to Gcash?

Answer: Yes, you can. There are partner remittance centers where you can do the exchange.

Question: "Oops, you don't have enough balance in your Paypal account". This is what it keeps saying. I don't know why GCash can't recognize my Paypal balance. Did I make a mistake?

Answer: You need to check whether your Paypal balance is in PHP. GCash no longer supports non-PHP balances.

Question: Why is my USD Paypal balance not reflected in my GCash account?

Answer: GCash just changed its policy, and shall only be allowing PHP balance to be cashed-in via the app. This was implemented to have a more "seamless transaction". They advised that we convert our USD balance to PHP within Paypal itself before cashing-in to GCash.

Question: Can I cash-in from Paypal to GCash even if I'm not yet verified? If not, how to be verified? I don't have bank account. Can I use other bank account not in my name?

Answer: I did a quick check, and it seems like verified Paypal account is not a "requirement", but rather "recommended". Regarding your last question on using a different account not in your name, I believe it's not possible. They'll match it with the name of the Paypal user.

Question: I already verified my PayPal account which should have increase my withdrawal limit. However, when I linked my GCash to my PayPal, there's still a note telling me that the limit of cash-in is P500 or 10USD. Why is that?

Answer: This limit is a "minimum", which means you can only withdraw amounts P500 or higher from your Paypal to GCash. Hence, if your Paypal balance is less than this, you won't be able to withdraw/transfer that amount.

Question: What If the amount that I want to transfer from Paypal to GCash is in USD? Can I still have it transferred?

Answer: Following the updates made by GCash in May 2019, we can no longer transfer non-PHP balances from Paypal to GCash. Hence, you'll need to convert it first in Paypal using Balance Converter, and then do the transfer to GCash once the amounts are in PHP.

Question: I can’t cash-in using PayPal. I followed your instructions but still could’t proceed with my cash-in request. What should I do to complete my PayPal transaction?

Answer: Based on observation, the Paypal could only be linked and successfully processed if the name matched with that of your GCash. You may also want to check whether your app is the latest version. Lastly, make sure to delete all preapproved payments related to GCash in Paypal before re-starting the registration.

Question: Can I transfer or send my money to my Paypal account?

Answer: Upon checking the current features, there is no facility that will allow us to do this. You may, on the other hand, link the GCash Virtual Card to Paypal.

Question: My GCash has been authorized, and I Already had a transaction last year. why can't I transfer now?

Answer: There might have been updates implemented by either/both sides, which is why you may need to re-authenticate PayPal transfer.

Question: Can I send money from my PayPal to someone's GCash that's not mine?

Answer: No, you can't do this directly. The way to go about it is to send it to your GCash first, and then transfer to another person via the app itself.

Question: I just cashed-in my Paypal to my verified GCash account but it got refunded after a day, what might be the problem?

Answer: I've personally experienced the same thing, and I contacted GCash customer service just to get more idea about it. They explained to me that this is an issue on their end wherein the transfer made via Paypal fails to synchronize with the wallet. Their current standard procedure is to refund back the amount transfer, and that we initiate a new cash-in.

Thankfully when I did it the second time, the money was credited instantly, the way it was intended to be. Hence, to summarize, this is an issue between Paypal and GCash, and the current solution is just to re-do the cash-in.

Question: Can I send money from GCash to Paypal?

Answer: Currently, GCash do not have this function.

Question: Is it possible to transfer money from PayPal to GCash If I don't have PayPal account?

Answer: Unfortunately, this is not possible. You need to authorize the transfer from your account. Hence, having an account is necessary to do this transfer to GCash.

Question: Can I transfer money from Taiwan to the Philippines using GCash?

Answer: It is possible but only if you have a GCash account which requires a Globe mobile number for registration. Once you have a GCash account you can forward the money you'll withdraw from Paypal.

Question: How many days will it take to get my money from GCash to my bank account?

Answer: It should be instantaneous. The moment you transfer using the in-app function, the transfer should be reflected a few seconds after.

Question: When I transferred the money from PayPal to Gcash, can I withdraw the money using Gcash prepaid credit card (Mastercard)?

Answer: GCash MasterCard functions as a regular ATM card or debit card, which you may use to withdraw from any other bank's ATM. Currently, the service fee is at P20 per withdrawal.

Question: Do I have to use same email in PayPal and GCash?

Answer: No. It does not have any impact which email you used for registration. However, what needs to match are the names registered for Paypal and GCash.

Question: Can you transfer money using a credit card from Paypal to GCash without having any balance at all in Paypal?

Answer: Unfortunately no. This is not possible. The cash-in feature is only applicable to Paypal balance.

Question: When transferring money from Paypal to my GCash wallet, in my case is currently in dollar currency. Would it be fine to send it anyway? Even if money in my Paypal account is in dollars?

Answer: GCash is highly encouraging its users to convert the amount first within Paypal, and transfer money in PHP. Plus, there are some users citing that foreign currencies no longer appear in the Paypal cash-in function of GCash. Hence, it might really be more convenient to convert it first.

Question: My phone was stolen the other day. Can I have a new GCash number and authorize my Paypal to this new GCash number?

Answer: Upon checking with GCash, this is possible. You just need to message GCash Care to report your lost SIM card or phone. Afterward, they will temporarily suspend your GCash to prevent any unauthorized transactions. Once you get your new number, you can message GCash Care again, so they can relink back your GCash account to that new number. From there, you may also use Paypal cash-in just like before.

Question: Can I directly use GCash to get money from China without using Paypal anymore?

Answer: This is possible, but only if the sender uses Western Union to give money to you. Other than this, you'll be needing Paypal as a way to do the transfer.

Question: Is it possible to transfer money from one person to the next in another country to my GCash account?

Answer: It's possible, but may become inconvenient. GCash requires verification via OTP from time to time, and if that person in another country won't have access of his OTP, then he won't be able to use his GCash account to send money to you. The work around is for them to send money via Paypal, and you'll cash it in via GCash app.

@adrian Unlinking can be done in Paypal, but if you redo the linking process within GCash app, it will automatically relink it.

adrian on September 01, 2020:

how can I unlink my paypal account to my gcash and have it relinked again? should it be done using gcash app or paypal itself?

Renz Kristofer Cheng (author) from Manila on August 28, 2020:

@Kazu, is this the first time you are transferring? If not, it might be due to system glitch. If this persists, I suggest you redo the process of giving approval to Paypal.

Kazu on August 28, 2020:

Hello, I have 5k in my paypal balance. The currency is on php but whenever I try to cash in from paypal to gcash, Why does it says that 'my available balance' is php 0.00??

Renz Kristofer Cheng (author) from Manila on July 25, 2020:

@Venus B. Yes. That's very much possible. The funds will be stored in your virtual wallet, and from there you can transfer to your bank account.

Venus B. on July 25, 2020:

Hello, can I transfer Paypal funds to my Gcash without a mastercard?

Mona Sabalones Gonzalez from Philippines on July 25, 2020:

Thank you for this article. I would rather transfer money to my bank, which means I'll be reading your next article, haha. However, being an oldie, I still think there may come a time that I will use GCash but for now, the bank is what I know, and I don't understand GCash as of now as a currency.

Renz Kristofer Cheng (author) from Manila on July 24, 2020:

@Christian. Yes. Thank you for sharing. I'll add it up in the article, so that everyone will be more guided.

Christian on July 24, 2020:

Hello. Just to clarify. There is a minimum amount in transferring money from paypal to Gcash which is 500php. Hope this helps.

@Drew Agravante You're welcome!

Drew Agravante from Philippines on July 15, 2020:

Thanks for the article. A big help!

Renz Kristofer Cheng (author) from Manila on July 03, 2020:

@Grace A Fully Verified GCash user has a monthly cumulative cash-in limit of P100K, and this may explain why it's not pushing through. Fortunately, GCash recently increased this limit to P500K once you link a bank account to your GCash.

If you already have upgraded your GCash account and it's still not working, try breaking the amount into smaller tranches.

Grace on July 03, 2020:

Hello i need help. I was able to transfer like 57k last may 2020 from my paypal to my gcash acct. Now im trying to transfer like 100k. But itsnot going through. Please help me thank u

Renz Kristofer Cheng (author) from Manila on July 02, 2020:

@Bryan sun You can only do this when you get a physical Mastercard that is connected to your GCash balance. Then link that card to your Paypal, so that you can transact in Paypal using GCash funds.

Bryan sun on July 02, 2020:

Sir, how can I pay paypal using only just the gcash app? Or if I make a PayPal account or use the PayPal app, can I use gcash app as payment method to pay paypal? Thanks.

Renz Kristofer Cheng (author) from Manila on June 25, 2020:

@Rogelio Unfortunately, the minimum cash in amount is P500. This explains why it says 'insufficient balance'

Rogelio on June 25, 2020:

I can’t cash in may paypal balance to my gcash it say’s that insuficient balance. But i do have 299php in my paypal

Renz Kristofer Cheng (author) from Manila on May 02, 2020:

@Miko Minimum amount for the transfer to work is P500. However, that error message seems like due to the maintenance activity they conducted.

Renz Kristofer Cheng (author) from Manila on March 31, 2020:

@Joy Adilein I'm glad you found this helpful. Yes, GCash uses Instapay network which makes the transfer instantaneous. However, there are rare cases when transfer becomes unsuccessful due to system error, and the money won't be transferred. Worse part is, you need to wait 1-2 days for it to be credited back to your GCash account. Don't worry, this happens in 1 out of 10 cases.

Joy Adilein on March 31, 2020:

Hi, I was able to transfer my money from my paypal to Gcash successfully and right away. Thanks for you help. But I have question, if I’m going to transfer the money from Gcash to BDO, how long will it take? Is it right away? Cause I only tried transferring money from Gcash to security bank and fhe money is instant. Was hoping it’s the same with BDO? Do you happen to know? I would appreciate if you reply. Thanks!

Renz Kristofer Cheng (author) from Manila on March 28, 2020:

@Jenny Names should match, so the quick answer is no. What I suggest is that you make your own Paypal account and ask the sender from USA to send the money to your own Paypal account. Then, you may use GCash's feature to cash-in the money.

Jenny on March 28, 2020:

Can send money using Paypal in Gcash but different owner? The owner of PAYPAL is from USA ang GCASH is from Philippines?

Renz Kristofer Cheng (author) from Manila on December 24, 2019:

@Jardine You can only create an account in GCash using Philippine-based mobile numbers. Hence, you won't be able to make use of this feature of transferring from Paypal to GCash.

Jardine on December 24, 2019:

Can I transfer money from paypal to my gcash even if I am not using my ph number?

Renz Kristofer Cheng (author) from Manila on December 13, 2019:

@Kirk it may take a while for changes to reflect, which may explain why the system still sees the names as unmatched. Also, if ever you are not yet verified in either GCash or Paypal (or both), you may want to do so. It may solve the linking issue.

Kirk on December 13, 2019:

Hi Renz Kristofer Cheng, I cannot link my gcash to my paypal account. It says "Please make sure your first and last name in Gcash and Paypal accounts are exactly the same". I tried to change my name in both accounts but they didn't do anything. Still I can't link them together. Please help me what to do. Thank you in advance.

For assistance, please visit or email" Why was that?

Renz Kristofer Cheng (author) from Manila on November 19, 2019:

@Grace mendoza This does not apply to GCash, although the minimum cash transfer is P500.

Currently (as of December 2019), there's still no charge transferring from GCash to BPI.

Grace mendoza on November 19, 2019:

Paypal charges about 250php for withrawal below 7000 php on BPI .Does this APPLY TO GCASH ? What if from paypal to gcash to BPI? What are the charges? Thanks

@Melissa what's the currency of your available funds? GCash only accept PHP-denominated transfers.

Melissa Cabasis on October 30, 2019:

Hi,i have funds in my paypal,but why i cant transfer funds using my gcash

Renz Kristofer Cheng (author) from Manila on August 19, 2019:

Only PHP Paypal Balance can be transferred to GCash. This may explain why you cannot transfer.

I hope this helps.

@Nadz if your Paypal Balance is not denominated in PHP, it will no longer appear in GCash. This is in relation to their advisory issued on the 3rd week of May 2019.

Nadz on May 22, 2019:

Why my Paypal Balance is not reflecting on my GCash account.. I'm now transfrerring / CASH in via PAYPAL to my Gcash account.

Renz Kristofer Cheng (author) from Manila on May 13, 2019:

@Albert You may want to check your Paypal account, and remove anything connected with GCash first, just so we can start anew. Then, re-start the process via the GCash app. Also, make sure that you are linking a Paypal account that matches with your name registered in GCash. I hope this helps.

@Jam You can cash out your GCash balance in plenty ways. First, you can go to remittance centers like Cebuana or MLhuillier, and cash out from there. You may also cash out via bank transfer using built-in function within the app.

Jay on May 07, 2019:

I think today paypal do not want to withdraw money through gcash anynore. Because there are some disputes that their money is gone when they tried to cash in via paypal. So the message always shows:

"Sorry, we are unable to proceed with your cash-in request.Please ensure that your PayPal account has been activated or that there are no security restrictions on your account.You may contact PayPal Support for more info."

jp on April 11, 2019:

Renz Kristofer Cheng (author) from Manila on December 07, 2018:

@Hasmin there were updates and changes with the Paypal feature, so it really requires to remove the old, and relink it back. Now if this happen still afterwards, then you may want to ensure you have the latest GCash app version. If this stil doesn’t work, the only thing I can think of is GCash customer care.

hasmin on December 07, 2018:

everytime i cash in using my paypal why it keep saying to relinked my paypal account?

Kyle on September 24, 2018:

I cant Connect my gcash to my paypal. It would lead me to preapprove payments but when i looked at the box of preapprive payment wherein i have to confirm.theres none.

Renz Kristofer Cheng (author) from Manila on September 23, 2018:

@YKN That's true. Paypal implicitly gets its revenues by lowering conversion rates. Although the same rate applies when you opt to have the USD balance deposited to a PHP deposit account.

Still, it's good to let people know of this. Thank you for bringing it up.

Renz Kristofer Cheng (author) from Manila on September 23, 2018:

@Rowenna I believe I was wrong. They might need the accounts to have names that match.

Renz Kristofer Cheng (author) from Manila on September 22, 2018:

@Rowena I believe this is possible, since you'll be getting his "permission" by authorizing GCash to get balance from your dad's Paypal.

If this technique doesn't work (which I don't think will be the case), you may need to open a GCash account for your dad.
