GCash now offers free remittance services
GCash, an E-Wallet service company, is now offering free remittance services to their users, though with some limitations.
A free end-to-end remittance experience is now available, however, the free withdrawal services can only be used twice a month. This can be done by launching the GCash app, through the @gcashofficial Messenger official account, or by dialing *143# on Globe or TM SIMs.
