Do you want to watch Netflix movies but you don’t have a credit or debit card? What if I tell you that you can pay Netflix using GCash? That’s right, you can use your GCash wallet to pay for your Netflix subscription and watch all the movies and TV shows that you want.
Netflix is arguably the best form of home entertainment around. Where else can you find thousands of Hollywood movies, TV shows, soap operas and original documentaries in one place? You can watch any movie, anytime, as long as you have a decent Internet or mobile data connection. Netflix is pretty affordable, too. The lowest priced plan only costs ₱149 per month, which translates to ₱5 per day. You’ll probably spend more on cellphone load than Netflix.
To gain access to Netflix content, you will have to pay for a subscription using a credit or debit card, or charge it to your postpaid mobile bill. The problem is that many of us don’t have a credit or debit card, and are not postpaid mobile subscribers either. Fortunately, there is a way to pay for Netflix using GCash and I will teach you how to do it.
For this to work, you will need a verified GCash account and you have already activated the GCash American Express Virtual Pay card. This virtual card is free to all GCash users and you don’t need a maintaining balance to use it. You can read this article to learn how to get your GCash American Express Virtual Pay card.
Take note that you must have a verified GCash account in order to get the American Express Virtual Pay card. Read this article to learn how to verify your GCash account. If you don’t have a GCash account yet, sign up here and get free ₱50 after verification.
By the way, you can also use your GCash MasterCard debit card to pay for your Netflix subscription. But for this article, we’ll use the American Express Virtual Pay card because it’s free and you can get it immediately without any hassles.
How to Pay for Netflix via GCash
Sign in to Netflix (on your browser or mobile app) and choose your plan by clicking “See the Plans.”
Select the plan that you are interested in. If you will only be watching Netflix on your mobile phone, you may choose the Mobile plan. For families and barkadas, the Premium plan is the better choice because it supports up to four screens or viewers at a time and has 4K+HDR resolution.
