I usually use GCash in making payments whenever I shop online on eBay, Multiply and used it once when I bought a cheap item on Facebook. This was very useful when PayPal was not fully offered to Filipino online shoppers. Though they will slash off a nominal fee for each transaction, the convenience of doing mobile payment compensates it.
Until Globe reaches its target market where most of it are the hippies, ages belonging to under 25 years old. You can have your Globe GCash card now customized – even your whole narcissistic face printed on a plastic card! I can sense that this can be used as a practical identification card since your ID picture will also be printed at the back of the card.
Just go to www.globe.com.ph/gcash and register using your existing GCash account. Just make sure that you have at least 100 pesos in your account.
