You can easily transfer money from your PayPal account to your GCash wallet within 24 hours (real-time for most transactions). To do this, you will need to link your PayPal account to your GCash account.
- Your first and last name on PayPal must be identical with your first and last name on your GCash account (e.g. Juan Dela Cruz and Juan De La Cruz will not match). Both accounts must be owned by the same person.
- The PayPal account must be set up in the Philippines.
- The PayPal account must be a personal-type account (non-business account).
- Your GCash account must be fully verified.
To cash-in from PayPal, users must first link their PayPal account to GCash.
Step 1. Log on to the app, and click the menu on the upper left of the screen. Tap on My Linked Accounts.
Step 2. Select PayPal and input the PayPal email account you are linking to GCash.
Step 3. You will be redirected to PayPal’s login page. Input your PayPal account Username and Password to link your GCash wallet to PayPal.
Step 4. Once linking is successful, you will now be able to add funds from your PayPal account to your GCash wallet.
Upon successful linking, you will receive an email to notify that you have successfully signed up for a Preapproved Payments Plan to G-Xchange, inc. with PayPal. This Preapproved Payments Plan gives GCash temporary permission to transfer your Paypal funds to your GCash account.
