GCash, Globe’s own micropayment service, gives its reloadable prepaid card a needed upgrade. Their magnetic stripe only cards now have a built-in EMV chip technology for better security.
The new GCash MasterCard with EMV also comes with Beep for compatibility with Metro Manila’s unified ticketing on major transportation systems. EMV stands for Europay, MasterCard, and Visa, the trio that created the standard but it’s now managed and used by more major payment companies.
The GCash MasterCard with EMV is available for Php150 while the added Beep feature will cost Php210. These new cards are already available through Globe stores with GCash booths. You may check out the listing here 23.
