Since the quarantine began, deliveries have been the most convenient way to purchase things. From meals to groceries to your other needs at home, online shopping is now the way to go. And to make it even more convenient, you can pay for your purchases through online banking and other electronic payment methods. This also allows contact-less deliveries to be possible.
Among the most popular online payment services is GCash. GCash is a mobile wallet app that allows you to instantly send money, pay bills, buy load, and more. Through GCash, you can pay your utility bills, credit card bills, and others at the comfort of your home. You can also send and receive money from different banks.
