Troubleshooting Cash In Problems

Sometimes, you may encounter cash-in problems in GCash, like delayed posting in your account and delayed sending of one-time-pin.

I cashed a substantial amount once, but my balance hadn’t changed. I checked my BPI account online, and it was already deducted. I almost panicked, but luckily it was updated after a few minutes.

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.

Also, you may contact GCash thru their Customer Care Hotline (2882) or you can also submit a ticket, just in case their Twitter page is not responding.

Other GCash Cash-In Methods

There are other methods to cash in to GCash. You can use these other methods if you don’t have a BPI account. Preferably, online banks are the most convenient as you can do it anywhere as long as you have an internet connection.

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.

However, 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.
