How to Apply for a GCash Mastercard

In our fast-moving and busy world, convenience is key, especially when it comes to our purchases. Nowadays, many of us prefer to go cashless during our shopping or errand run, where it only takes a quick swipe with a credit card to go through every purchase. However, applying for a credit card can be incredibly tedious and have a lot of strict requirements, something that not everyone can easily accomplish.

The GCash Mastercard is one substitute you can get that you can use just like a credit card, whether it’s for online or in-store purchases. No more rigid guidelines or piles of paperwork. Plus, applying for your GCash Mastercard is as easy as it gets. It only takes an order online or a quick visit to your convenience store, and you can already get your very own GCash Mastercard.

Here are three ways to order and apply for a GCash MasterCard, either from the GCash mobile app, the GCash website, or via different over-the-counter outlets.

Applying for a GCash Mastercard has minimal requirements. You only need to have an active Semi-Verified or Fully Verified GCash account to be able to get a GCash Mastercard and use it for ATM withdrawal. You also need to pay the P150 payment for the Mastercard.
