Troubleshooting Cash In Problems

If this happens, the best way to ask for help is thru GCash Twitter page. They are quick to respond and normally the issues are resolved in 4 hours or less based on my experience.

Over the Counter (OTC) and Remittance Partners are the worst as it defeats the purpose of doing it “online” to avoid the hassle of going out and saving your travel time.

Hence, it could be your last resort. In terms of lead time, OTC is way better than remittances. The former is real time while the latter would take hours to make the transaction.
