Fees on Paying Netflix through GCash

There is no fee when paying Netflix using your GCash account.

However, you may see an additional amount deducted from your GCash account when using the AMEX virtual card.

According to GCash, it can either be a small transaction fee or a test charge when using your AMEX virtual card with a new merchant.

If it is a test charge, it will be credited back to you within 7 to 15 days and costs about the peso equivalent of 1 US dollar.

It is always best to send a message to customer support for clarification.

Other Ways to Pay Netflix Online without credit card

If you prefer to pay online using a credit card but are having problems with your current one, you can use your American Express Virtual Pay card from GCash.

While it does not give you a credit line, it is being recognized as a credit card, and you can use it in situations wherein a site or subscription-only allows credit cards as the payment method.

It is better to use AMEX instead of debit cards for added security since it only draws its balance from your available GCash fund.

What cards can I use to pay Netflix?

Netflix accepts credit and debit cards, virtual cards, prepaid cards, gift cards, mobile wallets, and other partners for payments.

You can use your Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and JCB debit, credit, or prepaid cards.

Virtual cards are also accepted but may be declined in certain instances.

Can I pay Netflix using regular load?

Unfortunately, using regular load is no longer an option to avail a Netflix subscription.

This is previously available but is not included anymore in the payment page of Netflix when you try to register to one of their plans.

Why does Netflix not accept my AMEX card for payment?

This may not be the same for all people, but if your payment method is not accepted, you will be prompted to try another one.

If you are entirely in the GCash ecosystem, you can use your physical GCash Mastercard or the GCash account itself as the payment method on the Netflix website.

Can I charge Netflix to my postpaid account?

Yes, you can pay for your Netflix subscription using your postpaid number by choosing it as the payment option or going straight to your postpaid subscription app.

An example of this is the new GlobeOne app that lets you manage your default Postpaid subscription and add-ons and the Lifestyle section that offers Netflix and the like alongside your monthly bill.

Just beware of scammers pretending to give you a free Netflix subscription in exchange for the OTP that will be sent to you by Netflix.

They do this by entering your postpaid number as the payment option and will need the OTP to finish the transaction.

What are the Netflix plans?

Netflix offers different tiers at different prices, including their respective video quality, and device access allowed starting at only PhP 149 a month.

The most affordable is the Mobile plan, with a maximum resolution of 480p, which should not be a problem since you only view it through your phone or tablet.

However, if you are thinking about casting the screen to a TV, such as when using Chromecast, you should opt for the Standard Option with a 1080p viewing resolution at PhP 459 per month.

Don’t forget that you can still watch directly on your computer and TV with a Basic plan costing PhP 369 a month though only having a 480p resolution.

The best viewing quality comes with the Premium plan at PhP 549 monthly with 4K+HDR resolution.


Netflix is indeed a source of quality entertainment for the whole family, offering fantastic shows at a great price.

You can never miss payments to the app by using GCash.
