Can I send Money from GCash to GCash without verification?

Yes, you can do this through Pay QR only if you haven’t verified your GCash account. But the downside is that you can only have a wallet limit of ₱50,000. So, if you want to send more than that, you’ll need to verify your GCash.

GCash to GCash Minimum Transfer

GCash to GCash Limit

While there’s no minimum amount you can send from GCash to GCash, there’s a maximum amount.

We’ve mentioned that you can still send money from GCash to GCash even if you’re unverified. But that comes with a limitation. To understand the limits, we’ve prepared this table:

Account TypeGCash to GCash Limit
Fully Verified₱100,000
Fully Verified w/ linked bank account/GSave/GInvest and Enterprise  ₱500,000

The GCash to GCash limit is the wallet size for each account type. This means that every transaction you do counts towards that wallet limit.

For instance, you’ve cashed in ₱30,000, purchased items worth ₱5,000, and you’re a Fully Verified user; you can’t send ₱100,000 anymore. You’ve already exceeded your wallet size for that month.

So, it’s better to get your GCash account verified so you’ll double your wallet size.
