GCash Beats Global App Brands in Rankings

With the COVID-19 pandemic rapidly pushing everyone to adapt digital payments, GCash emerged as the top finance app in the Philippines. In fact, it even ranks higher than other popular apps like Netflix, Twitter, Grab, and TikTok.

Based on data obtained by App Annie, GCash was among the top apps in terms of active users from January to September 2020 for both Android and iOS. Compared to September last year, GCash registered a massive 130% active user growth. Currently, GCash has over 26 million users.

“We saw how Filipinos are in need of services that can enable them to function and do their normal day-to-day activities even when they are staying at home. Other than having the power to conveniently shop at home, people also want to conduct their other errands online–and GCash is here to support those needs,” GCash President and CEO Martha Sazon said.
Aside from offering a multitude of digital services ranging from bills payments to sending money, GCash is an all-encompassing eWallet platform that also lets you save money with GSave, avail of life insurance through GInsure, and have credit with GCredit (for those who meet the requirements).
The fact that GCash overtook major global apps like Netflix, TikTok, and Twitter locally, this is proof that GCash is an essential app for Filipinos in adapting to the new normal lifestyle.

“GCash is providing democratized access to financial technology or FinTech by making it easier for them to navigate the challenges of financial volatility in these trying times,” Sazon added.
