Troubleshooting Cash In Problems

In some cases, you may encounter cash in problems in GCash. One time I cashed in a substantial amount but my balance hadn't changed. I checked my BPI account online and it was already deducted.

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.

Other GCash Cash In Methods

There are other methods to cash in on GCash. These are some that you can use 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. 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.
