Like GCash, CliQQ Wallet is an e-wallet despite some limitations or fewer features.
Previously, you could somehow transfer your CliQQ Wallet balance to GCash, but it’s now limited to purchasing items from 7-Eleven stores
If you want to know how to transfer the CliQQ wallet to GCash through alternative means, check out all the details in this article.
What is the CliQQ Wallet?
The CliQQ wallet is an e-wallet that can be accessed through the official app of the PSC or Philippine Seven Corporation.
It allows you to store value in your account, conveniently used for paying purchases at 7-Eleven convenience stores.
It will make sense to have an e-wallet if you are a frequent customer at 7-Eleven to avoid handling cash and coins only to sanitize your hands again before eating food.
Previously, it could be used as an e-payment for GCash cash-in instead of paying for cash, but it is no longer allowed by 7-Eleven.
How can I transfer my CliQQ Wallet to GCash?
If you want to cash in to your GCash wallet, but you have an existing balance in your CliQQ wallet account, you can follow these steps:
Step 1: Open the Facebook app or browser on your device or smartphone.
Step 2: Search for the keyword CliQQ wallet to GCash trade or something similar.
Step 3: Check for legitimate deals by checking proofs of transactions and comments from other customers.
Step 4: Chat with the page or individual account.
Step 5: Proceed with the transaction by following instructions such as redeeming some codes through the CliQQ app and providing your GCash mobile number.
Take note that you are dealing with third parties by doing the above instruction, so you should proceed at your own risk. You should also never share your OTP.
How can I know if I am being scammed?
One of the tell-tale signs that you are dealing with a scammer is if they have a relatively new Facebook account.
There are some comments on their posts with complaints from other customers, but you are unlikely to see them because they can be blocked or deleted.
If you receive an OTP from GCash, never provide this to anyone as it may lead to your account being hacked.
Can I send my CliQQ wallet balance to other CliQQ users?
No, you cannot transfer the balance of your CliQQ wallet to other CliQQ users.
The only thing that you can directly transfer to other CliQQ users is your rewards points.
Only you can spend the money in your CliQQ wallet by going to 7-Eleven convenience stores.
Can I cash out my CliQQ Pay balance?
You cannot cash out your CliQQ Pay wallet balance by withdrawing it or transferring it to other e-wallets.
The value loaded on your account can only be spent on 7-Eleven items at 7-Eleven stores, as it is intended.
7-Eleven may try to compete with other e-wallets by enabling the cash-out function, but until then, you are supposed to enjoy your e-wallet in 7-Eleven stores.
Do I need to buy a CliQQ Rewards Card to open a CliQQ account?
It is not mandatory to have a CliQQ Rewards Card to have a CliQQ account, although you can use it for registration.
You can easily download the CliQQ app from the CliQQ by 7-Eleven app on the Google Play Store and Huawei App Gallery or the CliQQ Every Day! Rewards app on the Apple App Store.
Having a CliQQ Rewards Card allows you to earn points still even though you do not have your phone with you when buying items, as long as it is connected to your account.
It could be helpful in locations with a weak internet connection or when you do not have mobile data.
Alternatively, you can sign up for a CLiQQ account through Facebook Messenger.
Can I link more than one Rewards Card to my CliQQ account?
Yes, you can have more than one physical card linked to your CliQQ account.
You can link up to five cards per account linked to a mobile number.
This means you can ask your friends to use your CliQQ card if they do not have one and are not claiming points from their purchases.
Can kids register for a CliQQ account?
Unlike most e-wallets, CliQQ allows users as young as 13 years old to sign up for an account.
Before registering, they can buy the CliQQ Rewards Card or download the app.
How can I earn rewards points with CliQQ?
You need to spend P50 at 7-Eleven stores or CliQQgrocery.com on your mobile phone.
Take note that you earn double the points when using the CliQQ Wallet since a P25 purchase already earns one point.
Does CliQQ wallet have a KYC process?
Yes, having a CLiQQ wallet or a CLiQQ account, in general, may require you to undergo the Know Your Customer process.
Having multiple accounts, dummy accounts, and suspicious transactions can get your account frozen, wherein you cannot spend the balance.
If your account is blocked due to not being able to complete a required KYC process, even though you have not committed fraud, it can never be reactivated again.
How can I get my money back if my CliQQ account is blocked?
Based on the Terms and Conditions of CliQQ, there is no mention of how you can get your funds if your account is blocked.
However, if the Philippine Seven Corporation is found to be liable to you in any way, there is a limit of P2,000 to their liability.
It means you might be able to get your money back, but only up to P2,000.
Is it worth it to buy at 7-Eleven?
You can buy everyday items at 7-Eleven, and while some may argue that they are overpriced, 7-Eleven sometimes sells them for a considerable discount.
People love other items at 7-Eleven, such as ready-to-eat meals and store-brand sandwiches.
Sometimes 7-Eleven is the closest thing to a mini restaurant that you can find at specific locations, and they are always airconditioned any time of the day.
Transferring your funds from the CliQQ wallet to GCash requires some creativity.
Look for trusted third parties, or look for the best deals on 7-Eleven stores.
