If you’re using a computer/laptop, you can also contact GCash Suppport using their website.

Just go here: https://help.gcash.com/hc/en-us. Here are the steps in doing so:

1. Go to the GCash Help Center website using the link above.

4. Provide your details: Name, email, phone number and message.

5. Click “Start Chat”

6. Then, you may need to wait a few minutes before an agent can contact you.

I like to use the live chat in their website because I can see the number of people waiting in line in real-time as opposed to the app.

3. Submit a Ticket in the GCash App

If you don’t have time to wait for the live chat, you can just submit a ticket now via the GCash app or through their website.

Here are the steps to do so in the GCash app.

7. Tap Submit! You just need to wait for 24-48 hours for their reply.

4. Call the GCash Hotline (2882)

If you’re truly in a hurry or you have a problem that involves immediate help, you can just contact the GCash Help Center Hotline – 2882.

Here, you’ll talk to a real GCash representative so you can resolve your concern.

This is better than live chat if you are more inclined to talking instead of chatting.

But take note that you may need to wait in line before you can talk to a representative too.

5. Send an email to GCash Help Center

If you prefer to, you can also send a request for help through the GCash Help Center email.

Simply email support@gcash.com with your concern. Be sure to include your GCash-registered name and number.

You also need to explain in detail your concern for the representative to help you easily.

But take note that you must never give out your GCash login details even to GCash representatives!

5 Tips to make your GCash-related problems go smoother

In my 3 years of using GCash, I’ve encountered some problems that have always been resolved.

That’s because I took some necessary precautions as I used GCash.

So, to help you, I’ve included these important tips so you may never experience major problems using GCash.

1. Always take screenshots

In the world of technology, one of your only evidences are screenshots.

I always make it a hobby to take a screenshot whenever I do any money-related transactions in GCash.

Doing so will help you greatly when you encounter any problems at all.

This is because if you will contact GCash Help Center, they will usually ask for any screenshots of the problems you experienced.

This will help them understand the problem more.

Also, it helps you as a user because you have more evidence to support your claims.

But as always, never take a screenshot of your personal details such as your login info.

2. Never give out personal info to just anyone

If you didn’t know, there are a lot of posers in different social media sites claiming that they’re GCash representatives.

You should never entertain any person or page that isn’t verified as GCash.

This also goes even to real GCash representatives.

They would never ask for your GCash login details or OTP.

So, if someone asks you this, never reply and block them as it’s most likely a scam.

Lastly, be careful of emails and websites posing as GCash.

As I’m extra cautious, I never click on any links on emails I receive unless I can verify that it’s the real thing.

3. If it’s urgent, don’t hesitate to try all the methods above

If you lost money or you’ve been scammed, try your best to use all the methods above if possible.

Doing so will increase the chances that your problem will immediately be resolved.

However, there isn’t any guarantee to this as this still all depend on GCash.

4. If it’s not, try to find a solution first in the help center

If it’s not too urgent or if you just have a question, why not try to find a solution in the GCash Help center for self-support first?

Just open your GCash app > tap the hamburger icon on the upper-left > Select “Help” > then view the common questions below.

There are a lot of articles that answer the most common questions asked by users there!

Try to browse through it so you can find the answer to your question immediately.

5. Don’t leave a large balance in your GCash

Lastly, don’t leave a large balance in your GCash app as much as possible.

Think about it, how can you get scammed if you don’t have money in your GCash, right?

Although there are still ways that you can get scammed, doing this will reduce those chances.

But what if you need large amounts in your GCash balance? How can you safely store it? The answer is to just create a GSave account.

If you didn’t know, GCash partnered up with CIMB which is a digital savings bank.

What I do is I would cash in money to GCash, then deposit it instantly in my GSave account through the GCash app.

Then, you can instantly withdraw it the same way you deposited it!

Doing so has the following benefits:

  • Depositing and withdrawing through your GSave account doesn’t have any fees!
  • There’s no minimum amount you need to withdraw and deposit.
  • GSave deposits and withdraws money in real-time.
  • You can easily create a GSave account for free in the GCash app.
