Times are tough, gas prices are high, and everything is expensive. As much as possible, you want services that are either cheap or free. Thankfully, mobile money transfers from BPI to GCash are free.

With millions of active users and account holders, there’s no denying that GCash and BPI are some of the busiest and most used mobile financial services in the Philippines.
