No need to bring and exchange cash when abroad?

Building on the successful Pay via QR launch in Japan in 2021 in collaboration with Alipay+, GCash first introduced GCash Global Pay in early 2023 at its Futurecast event. It was also expanded to new markets, including South Korea, Singapore, and Malaysia, as well as European destinations like France, Italy, and the United Kingdom.

With the holidays approaching, we're anticipating many Filipino travelers will soon be planning their vacations with their family and friends. With GCash Global Pay, we aim to make the travel experiences for Filipinos more enjoyable and stress-free. We're excited to continue our partnership with Alipay+ and expand the capabilities of GCash to more destinations in Asia and beyond, said Paul Albano, VP General Manager for GCash International.

GCash Global Pay offers a seamless and secure payment experience across various merchants through Scan to Pay. It also eliminates the inconveniences of high exchange rates, carrying too much cash, or withdrawing at ATMs with additional charges.

Through this service, budget-conscious travelers can also gain better control over their finances and allow them to stay on top of their expenses throughout their trip with features like low forex and no service fees.

Aside from this, GCash Global Pay gives access to a broader network of international merchants who offer exclusive deals and promotions when using GCash to pay through its partnership with Alipay+.

Whether you’re on your shopping spree at Japan's Don Quijote and Mitsui Shopping Park, trying out local delights from 7-Eleven or Lawson, exploring local transportation, or buying everyday essentials at various department stores, just look for the Alipay+ sign to know if you can use Global Pay with GCash, the company said.

To Scan to Pay with GCash abroad, simply look for the Alipay+ and GCash logo at the checkout counter. Open your GCash app, tap Pay Abroad with Alipay+, and let the merchant scan your unique QR or you can scan the merchant’s QR code. Verify the amount and click "Pay" to receive your receipt.

GCash is also set to introduce this month a range of new features to enhance GCash Global Pay, providing them with user-friendly access to real-time conversion rates to the local currency of their current location. The app will also display converted balances within their GCash wallets, ultimately helping users track their budgets better.
