What is a GCash Card?

The GCash Card is like a friend for the GCash app. It helps you buy things online and in stores. You can also take out cash from ATMs using your GCash account.

The new card is special because it works with Visa, a big company for cards all around the world. That means your card will show the Visa logo.

Think of the GCash Card like a debit card. You can put money on it before using it, and the money you have on the card is the same as what’s in your GCash account.

What are the GCash Card Features?

Your GCash Visa card has some cool things:

  • It has an EMV chip to keep it safe.
  • It comes with a 16-digit card number and a three-digit CVV to make sure your transactions are secure.
  • There’s also a virtual account number, which is a 12-digit code.
  • You can take out up to ₱40,000 every day, but when you use an ATM, you can take out a maximum of ₱20,000 at once.

Advantages of a GCash Card

The new card has lots of cool things you’ll like. Let’s check out some of the best stuff you can enjoy with the GCash Visa Card:

Withdraw Your Funds Whenever You Need Them

Sometimes you need cash, right? Well, your card can help with that! Just use your card at ATMs that work with BancNet or GCash, and you can take out money easily.

Pay for Your Purchases Without Shelling Out Cash
