How GCredit Works

I’d like to live a cashless life. Seriously, I mentioned to my husband last month that I will only use GCASH or PayPal for any transactions or my UnionBank EON (this is not a sponsored post, btw). But seriously! I hate bringing cash, and I think we will be able to live our lives without cash. I want to challenge myself and I think I will be able to survive a week without cash. I will start tomorrow and I hope you can follow my journey starting tomorrow! I will document it via my Facebook (http://fb.com/mommyginger) and Instagram stories (http://instagram.com/gingerarboleda)

Today though, I’ll be sharing with you this new feature of GCASH (again, this isn’t a sponsored post). Just found cool that they have this!

As you may know, GCASH is a produce under a company called Mynt. Aside from GCASH, Fuse lending (a micro-lending company) is under Mynt. So these two basically combined forces to launch GCredit.Β GCredit is a credit limit available on the GCASH app which may be used for your payments and purchases. Example, after scanningΒ  the QR codes of your favorite merchant, the app will ask you if you will pay via your GCASH money or GCredit.

You will need to activate your GCredit first and this “activation” is available when you use your GCASH app frequently for purchasing, loading and paying bills.

Now, how do you compute for interest. It’s very straight forward: [amount borrowed x 5% interest rate x (# of days borrowed / 30 days)].

You’re credit limit can be increased based on frequency and amount of transactions that you make. Credit limit starts at Php 1000 and can increase to Php 30,000.

Check out this feature and let me know your thoughts on this! πŸ™‚

      Hi Chay! I guess if he allows you to use it. “Credit” will be under the account holder. πŸ™‚

    How many GScore do you need to activate GCredit?
    I currently have 509, but it’s still saying not available.
    Please advise.

    • August 23, 2018 / 4:16 pm

      Hi Anvil! πŸ™‚ I checked with them and right now, since GCredit is still on beta phase. Only selected users have access to the product. Beta phase means that the company is still testing out the product across different kinds of users from specific areas. Don’t worry though! They mentioned that soon more and more users will be having access once the product is off beta. Just keep on using GCash to increase your GScore and be eligible for GCredit! πŸ™‚

    pwede bang Icash out ang GCredit limit parang credit card cash advance?

    • October 15, 2018 / 9:38 am

      Hi Rosemarie! I think diretsyo lang sya to purchase something πŸ™‚ Can’t be withdrawn as cash πŸ™‚

      • Jofil Aller
        February 22, 2019 / 6:09 pm

        You may withdraw if you buy the GCash Mastercard (P350) though.

          No because your Gcash Card withdraws from your Gcash wallet, not your Gcredit wallet which is essentially separate

          June 30, 2019 / 12:56 am

          Is this true?

          • July 13, 2019 / 12:57 pm

            Hi Laidi! If you’e question is “is this reliable?”, i’ve only used it once, so maybe the others here can jump in and share their experiences, too. But with my initial use of GCredit, it worked πŸ™‚

    pwede b ko mag grocery s supermarkets using gcredit? kng pwede ppano?

    • October 15, 2018 / 4:55 pm

      Pwede basta they accept GCash as payment πŸ™‚ so when you scan the QR code, the app will ask how would you like to pay. You can choose GCredit πŸ™‚

    Hi! This is very helpful as I was just approved for GCredit!
    If magbayad ako ng mas maaga, babalik ba agad ‘yung limit ko?
    Thanks!

    • Tj
      October 22, 2018 / 6:18 pm

      Yes. Babalik siya agad.

    • J
      October 30, 2018 / 11:17 am

      Yes, kaka-try ko lang. Bumalik siya agad kahit hindi pa tapos billing period. So bale interest na lang babayaran mo sa due date.

        December 18, 2018 / 3:50 pm

        Once I purchase today Dec 12. Then tomorrow, interest rate will already apply. Is my understanding correct? Thanks!

        • December 24, 2018 / 9:14 am

          Yes, it’s 5% for 30 days πŸ™‚ so automatically (i think) you have 5% na interest rate πŸ™‚

      • June 22, 2019 / 10:29 am

        Hi Shey! You have to cash in sa GCASH so that you can pay via GCASH credits. You can go to 7/11 to cash in or add to your GCASH Credits. πŸ™‚

    • December 24, 2018 / 9:12 am

      I haven’t tried it for load πŸ™‚ I’ve tried it lang for payments in stores because it presents the option once you scan the QR code of the merchant πŸ™‚

    Paano po ang matrix ng gcredit kase i have 490 gscore yet i have only 1000 gcredit? Im always paying bills like electric,internet, and credit card thru gcash including load worth 5k monthly. But u have 3000limit with 525gscore? A bit unfair.

    • May 26, 2019 / 11:59 am

      Hi! πŸ™‚ You can’t cash out the GCREDIT amount po. This is what you can use to purchase items na may GCASH QR code. It works like a credit card πŸ™‚ you need to pay it later on with interest πŸ™‚

  26. Bryan

    Hi there! I have a concern though, what if I don’t want to use Gcredit anymore? I have tried it once, and already paid for the whole amount before the due date. But this time, I don’t want to continue using it, so what should I do. Thank you, looking forward to your response.

    • June 16, 2019 / 10:45 am

      No need to worry or do anything. Just leave it like that πŸ™‚

    Can i withdraw cash from gcredit now? Like cash advance? Kc when i tried to withdraw using my gcash mastercard there were 3 options… sa atm machine.. gcash, gsave or savings, then gcredit. Gusto ko sana i try kaso baka magkaproblema.

    • June 24, 2019 / 6:13 pm

      Hi CZ! There is no cash advance for GCredit kasi πŸ™‚ You can only use it for paying merchants na partner ng GCASH πŸ™‚

  30. June 25, 2019 / 2:16 am

    I had already pay my Gcredit balance early on or before the due date of the transaction but why is it that my Gscore were decreased by -5 a day from 482 pts. become 477?

  31. Cyril
    June 25, 2019 / 11:18 am

    Ginagamit ko palagi gcredit ko. Binabayaran ko agad after a week or 2 weeks pero Wala namang interest. Ganun ba Yun kapag magbayad agad? Ginagamit ko siya for months now. Once lang ako nakapagbayad ng me interest, Yung umabot ng 3 weeks bago ko babayaran Yung credit mo. Thank u sa sasagot.

    Hi. Pano po ba gamitin ang Gcredit to pay loan?

    • July 13, 2019 / 12:55 pm

      Hi Ivy! You can’t use GCredit to pay a loan. GCredit is also a loan (used like a credit card).

    July 9, 2019 / 1:23 pm

    hello!nag apply po ako ng gcredit,at na approve sya, paanu po kung di ko sya ginamit, pwedi bang e apply sya ulit in near future para mas lumaki????or kilangan ko talagang e use muna bago ulit mag apply???
    salamat po sa sagot

    • July 13, 2019 / 12:52 pm

      Hi Charmie! The frequency of use kasi and paying it off after increases your credit score. So if you want the credit limit to increase, use it often then pay it off. Tataas sya if you show that you are a good payor πŸ™‚
