In conclusion, there are a lot of ways to cash out your GCash balance. You can choose to withdraw through an ATM (via GCash Mastercard or partner banks), over the counter, or even through online banking. You can also use GCash to pay bills or buy a load. With so many options, there’s sure to be a cash-out method that’s right for you.

Some tech startup offers a free service just for the sake of acquiring more users. But when the user base grows, the free service turns into a paid service. I think GCash is starting to adapt to this trend.
