“In line with our fervent commitment to make our customers’ everyday lives better and more convenient, we want to make sure that they can maximize their GCash account not only locally but wherever they are across the world. We look forward to expanding to other markets abroad soon and to partner with even more merchants in 2023,” GCash president and CEO Martha Sazon said.
Paying for purchases abroad is easy: make sure to look for the Alipay+ logo upon checkout, open your GCash app, and select the QR/PayQR button. From there, you scan the merchant’s QR code or select “Pay Abroad with Alipay+” and make your transaction.
Aside from select countries in Europe, GCash can be used in select merchants in Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, and Qatar thanks to its partnership with AliPay+. You can visit here for more details.
