I just don’t know how true these rumors are, but I’ve gotten reports that GCash has been acting up the past few days. Incidents of delays of anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours have been experienced by GCash payors (one sending the payments) and payees (the recipient of the GCash payment).
There are also rumors of GCash implementing a FEE for those who Cash-in (i.e. put in money into their GCash wallets) even if it’s paid in cold cash over the counter at any Globe Business Center.
Moverover, there are also rumors that this same CASH-IN FEE will, actually, be forwarded to the GCash payor (so that the GCash payor need not pay the 1% CASH-OUT fee anymore).
If these new policies are going to be implemented, then these may be the reasons why the GCash system has been quirky for the past few days. The GCash system may have been undergoing maintenance to incorporate new policy.
This is okay, in my opinion. But what is not okay is the fact that there have been no announcements or updates from GCash about the planned changes in policy. A simple text message update would have sufficed so that all concerned are well-informed.
Again, these are all rumors… as heard thru the grapevine.
If there are any GCash users out there, we’d appreciate your feedback if these rumors are, indeed, true.
