GCash and Coins.ph are two of the most popular e-wallet services in the Philippines. But what if you have two of them and you want to move money around? Is it possible? Yes, and we’re here to teach you how.

As you know, GCash is essentially a household name by now, especially during the recent health crisis. Forced to do transactions online, GCash has been the people’s go-to to pay for bills, transfer money, make online purchases, and more.

Over the years, GCash grew rapidly. In fact, other than storing your money and paying for things, the company is now offering insurance services, loans, rewards points, and even helping save the planet by planting trees.

On the other hand, Coins.ph may be less popular, but everyone who is into crypto trading has surely heard of them. As you know, while everyone was stuck at home, crypto buying and selling were on a boom in the past year, and Coins.ph has a fleet of features to cater to the people in that field.

Is there a fee when transfering from GCash to Coins.ph and vice versa?

There’s a Php15 convenience fee when you transfer money from GCash to Coins.ph.

Meanwhile, the fee when transferring money from Coins.ph to GCash depends on the service provider you pick. Choosing PESONet is completely free, but it won’t transfer until the next day. Going with InstaPay instantly sends the money, but comes with a Php10 service charge.

Is there a minimum amount when transferring GCash to Coins.ph and vice versa?

There’s no minimum amount when sending money from GCash to Coins.ph, but be aware of that Php15 service charge.

However, sending money from Coins.ph to GCash has a minimum amount of Php50.

I didn’t receive my money when I transfer from GCash to Coins.ph (or vice versa)

System delays are sometimes normal in services like these. Being reputable brands, you should get a refund if your funds fail to transfer. But if you don’t get one, you can reach GCash’s or Coins.ph’s respective customer service.

I can’t find ‘Bank Transfer’ in GCash

If the Bank Transfer feature is not available on your GCash app, chances are, your account is not fully verified. The process of varying a GCash account is now much easier. Before starting the verification process, make sure you have your valid ID with you. The process also involves taking your picture, so make sure you’re in a well-lit room.

You shall receive a text confirmation that your account is verified. After which, the Bank Transfer and other important features will now be available on your GCash account.

I can’t find ‘Cash Out’ on Coins.ph

Like in GCash, advanced features like cashing out will not be available unless your account is verified. The Coins.ph verification process and requirements are similar to GCash. It will ask for your valid ID and a selfie, and you should be good.

    I have been involve in an online trading platform name Traders Express Profit, a company with experience traders/brokers who will do the trading in your behalf. So far so good but when I tried to withdraw from my profit I was asked to provide a COT code. Is this some sort of scam? What is COT code and where can I get it? And another thing, is paying security and maintenance fee for your account before you can withdraw is a normal procedure in online crypto trading? Thank you!
