I just watched Gio's Blog and he was talking about using GCash but did not say much about it. Do any of you use it and what would be any caveats. Do I have to wait until I get to the Philippines on November 4th so I can get a Philippine phone number with Globe in order for it to work. I have never used a cash wallet before,

Thanks, Milford

Gcash is very useful here. You should have a local number and do the verification. Sometimes until 30 days. After that you can add Gcash card and use it as ATM card for cash. Also with Gcash you can pay bills and transfer money easily. I use it sometimes as a payment method in stores of gasoline stations.

I had to educate myself on GCash.

From token research, it seems reasonably safe and standard. Based on sources that I trust, GCash is a mature and legitimate payment system.

GCash seems as safe as Zelle (in the US) with similar benefits, issues, and cautions. It's not on the same scale as PayPal, Apple-Pay, or Samsung-Pay, but it looks like a great regional choice for the Phlippines.

I'd be curious if anyone has any personal cautions or horror stories.
