MANILA, PHILIPPINES — To give young Filipinos a safe and secure cashless payment channel and a fun digital experience, GCash, the country’s leading mobile wallet, introduces GCash Jr., the newest e-wallet in the GCash app for minors age seven to 17 years old.
With the GCash Jr., young users can access a host of digital financial services along with exciting offers such as exclusive fandom deals, gaming vouchers, discounts, premium access to their favorite shows, music, and so much more in a trendy user interface made just for them.
The new GCash Jr. lets youngsters learn how to be financially aware and responsible at an early age while still pursuing their passion and doing what they love, whether it’s gaming, music, shopping, and more.
Kick-starting their digital financial journey, GCash Jr. has designed an easy dashboard to access GCash’s convenient features such as online payments and Pay QR for their K-Pop merchandise, buying load for their gaming credits and skins, and GLife for food deals and the latest fashion trends.
GCash Jr. allows younger users to properly manage their finances with an e-wallet size of up to PHP 50,000 and a PHP 10,000 limit for daily incoming and outgoing transactions.
Safety and security remain top priorities. Similar to regular GCash accounts, GCash Jr. follows a stringent KYC (Know-your-customer) process. All you need to do is to download the GCash app and minors aged 7 to 17 years old will just need to submit a photo of any of the following IDs: student ID, passport, or national ID. Their parents will also be required to input their fully verified GCash account for reference and will be asked to take a selfie with the ID submitted by their child. GCash Jr. users are also required to submit a photo of their birth certificate.
Upon submission of all the requirements, users will receive SMS confirmation as fully verified GCash Jr. users. Getting GCash Jr. opens up users to a whole lot of exclusive offers and deals. On top of that, GCash has gone all out with GCash Jr.’s hit song and music video featuring actress and top Tiktok content creator Andrea Brillantes, one of the country’s most phenomenal P-Pop bands and Billboard chart-topper SB19, and 2021 Mobile Legends World Champions, Blacklist.
