Globe Gcash Mastercard is one of those prepaid card and virtual wallet combo account that you can easily have without any maintaining balance. This card can be used online or offline (on selected malls) to pay for your expenses.
Mastercard virtual/physical cards
GCash have recently announced that they will be charging customers with NO TRANSACTIONS in 6 months for P50 per month. All inactive cards with Zero balance will be closed. This move will clean up unused reserved card numbers (virtual/physical) and return them to the allocation pool. This is a bold move but will potentially bring interest back to GCash which was left behind a lot by the Launch SmartMoney’s PayMaya.
Globe have released it’s own version of a Beep Chip embedded prepaid credit/debit card for dual use in the internet and for riding MRT and LRT lines. This card was released a day or two ahead of the PayMaya rival from Smart e-Money which was a Visa card and it packs it’s own advantage over it’s rival.
