What is GCredit?
GCredit is a popular feature in GCash that CIMB Bank Philippines now power.
You can get up to a P30,000 credit line, which you can repay on the same day to avoid incurring any interest.
Even then, the interest rate ranges only from 1% to 7%, depending on your GScore.
GCredit can be used for Pay Bills, Pay Online, Pay QR, GLife, and even Google Playstore or Apple App Store.
How do I use GCredit?
One of the easiest ways to use GCredit is through the Pay QR option when you shop at establishments or convenience stores.
Instead of your GCash balance, you can immediately use GCredit as your payment option.
Inside the GCash app, you can use GCredit for select billers when paying bills and GLife purchases with so many merchants.
For the Play Store and App Store, it is optional to set GCredit as a backup payment method for seamless transactions.
GCash partners also allow payment using GCredit, one of which is Shopee.
Is ShopeePay transfer to a bank account free?
Sending money from your ShopeePay wallet to a bank account is free, which can come in handy when transferring GCredit to cash using the Grab app.
Note that the transfer is not instant and may take 1 to 2 banking days to be successfully processed.
Can I transfer money from the ShopeePay wallet to GCash?
Yes, it is possible to withdraw funds from your ShopeePay wallet to GCash, but you need to be verified.
It is free to transfer funds from ShopeePay to GCash but note that GCash to ShopeePay has a 1% admin fee.
ShopeePay Wallet to GCash transfer after a Shopee refund only makes sense if you have a GCash Mastercard, which you can use to withdraw money at ATMs.
If you have a bank account with a debit or ATM card, use that account to withdraw your money and avoid fees with ATMs of the same servicing bank.
GCredit can be your partner in hassle-free shopping and online spending, especially for large purchases.
Convert your GCredit to cash if you need financing for emergencies by using third-party apps and some creativity.
