Saw a multiply seller's post update yesterday announcing that they're now accepting Paypal payments via Gcash. When I read that, I was a bit skeptical because I received an infotext last week from Globe about this new feature, BUT it was mentioned that the facility is open for Paypal-US registered accounts only.
Upon reading the seller's post, I thought maybe it was just my imagination, that US-Paypal thingie (can't verify since I already deleted the said text), after all, I know that seller (bought from her twice) and she's known for her superb customer service, everything organized, and always up to date.
Of course I got excited about this, coz finally, I can accept Paypal payments too for my online store! I always receive inquiries from prospective buyers if I accept Paypal payments. I would always answer "no" or "not yet" just because I don't know how will I encash it or what are the charges involves.
Another advantage of this news is that if ever I'm out of Gcash fund (I'm a chronic online shopper too just like you! or maybe not hehe), I can easily replenish my Gcash wallet without the need to go to a Globe business center!
Okay, to verify the info, I opened my browser to access https://www.gcashonline.net/.
And here's what greeted me: (click pics to enlarge)
Wow! It's true then!
My curiosity didn't end there though. I had to check, you know! Haha!
I tried sending to my own Gcash number.
Click "checkout by Paypal" and you'll be directed to Paypal login page.
Still excited, my heart's pumping really fast!
Uh-oh! Just what I thought!
What a let down you know! I hope Globe offers this facility to local Paypal users too! Please Globe? You always say that you make great things possible, so please make it possible for us to use this facility too!
Anyway, for those fortunate enough to have a US-based Paypal account, click here for more info about this service. To know more about Gcash, click here.
