How to Unlink GCash to Google: Stop Auto Payments

The Google Play Store allows you to link your preferred payment method for more convenient transactions.

However, there are instances where this is not necessary and even not advisable when your kids can access your phone.

Read more on this article to know how to unlink GCash to Google Play Account.

Why do I need to unlink GCash from Google?

You need to unlink your GCash account from your Google Play Store Account if you do not want to opt to automatic monthly billing from your GCash account.

This feature is helpful if you are usually busy and paying for subscription apps that you regularly use, especially when you have more than 1.

Some apps will require that you use a credit card but having a verified payment method connected to your Google Account will usually do, especially if you do not have a physical card.

But things can go wrong when you do not want to renew your subscription, or your kid has access to your phone and virtually has an all-access pass to in-game purchases.

If you are not regularly using your GCash account for Google Play payments, it is not necessary to link it.

Step 7: Click the Remove button once again.

If you want to use GCash as a payment method in the future, you need to link it again to your Google Play account.

How to remove other automatic GCash payments

To remove any recurring payment from deducting an amount from your GCash balance, you need to unlink it manually from each app.

If you are not sure which apps are trying to charge you, transfer your GCash balance to your GSave account when not using it.

Once you have received an unsuccessful payment notification, check your Google Play account for the apps with subscriptions or check the apps with in-game purchases.

Also, check your email for previous successful purchase receipts.

I have already unlinked GCash, but why am I still being charged?

If you are still receiving successful or unsuccessful payment notifications after unlinking your GCash account from Google Play, it is more likely due to other apps.

You may have connected some of your app accounts directly to your GCash account, so you still need to disconnect them.

If you have used your GCash MasterCard or AMEX virtual card for previous payments, they can also be a source of payment requests since they only draw funds from your GCash account.

Conclusion

It is easy to connect to and unlink your GCash account from your Google Play Account.

Use it only when necessary and keep track of app subscriptions to avoid unexpected charges on your GCash account.
