How to Transfer Cash from Paymaya to GCash: Paymaya and GCash have both been convenient ways to transfer cash, pay bills, or simply to load your mobile phone. Think of them as reloadable debit cards that you can use to manage your finances. The only downer that the services used to have is that they are from competing networks – GCash is with Globe while Paymaya’s parent firm is Voyager Innovations, which is a part of Smart.
I’m sure that not all of your friends or relatives have the same network as you! This proved to be hassle for users who wish to send money to the competing service. However, over the years GCash and Paymaya have started working together to give their uses a more seamless experience, despite competing networks. Now, you can transfer cash or funds from Paymaya to GCash. Here’s how it works:
