by March 19, 2024

GCash, the leading mobile wallet in the Philippines has made its app available to overseas Filipinos in 16 countries across Asia, Europe, and North America.

The service, now known as GCash Overseas, enables Filipinos in those 16 new countries to download and utilise the GCash app, regardless of having Philippine SIMs or SIM cards from those nations. GCash Overseas is available in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Spain, Italy, Germany, Qatar, Kuwait, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Australia. This expansion is in response to the growing demand for financial services among the Filipino diaspora, which numbers over 10 million worldwide.

This development aims to address the financial needs of the global Filipino community, providing them with a secure and convenient way to manage their finances.

GCash Overseas users can enjoy various services, including sending money to the Philippines, paying bills, and purchasing mobile loads, among other features.

In addition to its core services, GCash has partnered with Ikon Solutions Asia, Inc., to further support Filipinos who are working abroad with digital financial solutions tailored to their needs.
