Many Filipinos have started using electronic wallets (e-wallets) such as GCash and PayMaya to send money, pay bills and go shopping online. It’s probably a good idea to have two or more of these mobile wallets in your phone just in case one feature is not available in the other. You can easily send money from PayMaya to GCash effortlessly and it only takes less than a minute.
You can use your PayMaya wallet to send money to a GCash user, and the latter will usually receive the cash instantly. Thanks to InstaPay, PayMaya to GCash transfers are facilitated and completed in real time. There might be instances where these fund transfers take several hours or even days to complete, but these are few and far between.
I have all the three major e-wallet apps on my phone: GCash, PayMaya and Coins.ph. It’s nice to know that I can easily and instantly transfer my money between these mobile wallets. If I want to buy something from Lazada, I can just transfer money from PayMaya to GCash and then use my GCash wallet to pay for the item. It’s so easy, fast and convenient. At the moment, PayMaya to GCash transfers (and vice versa) are free.
