How to Unlock Higher Limits within the GCash app
You can unlock higher limits by doing the procedure below or by becoming a GCash Platinum user. Nonetheless, a higher limit is very useful especially if you are handling higher funds.
Unlocking Higher Account Limits
Once you do so, you will be able to unlock:
- A bigger wallet limit – Php 500,000 maximum
- Higher incoming limits – you will be able to receive up to Php 500,000 in your wallet and daily cash-ins have no limitations
- Higher outgoing limits – withdrawals will have no limitations per month, and you can withdraw up to Php 10,000 per day
You will be receiving an SMS informing you of the increased limits.
Take note that once you’ve unlinked all of your BPI/UnionBank/Payoneer accounts, the limits will revert back to what it was before.
GCash Over-the-Counter Cash-in Limits
For 7-11 cash-ins, there is a 1% fee of the total cash-in amount. For example, if you cash in Php 1000, the fee will be Php 10, and the total amount of Php 990 will be credited or added to your balance. This fee always comes first as it is a 7-11 collected fee.
GCash cash-in for partner outlets is free for the first Php 8000 per month. When the amount goes over the Php 8000 limit, it will incur a 2% fee. This limit refreshes every first day of the month.
For example: Today, you cashed in Php 7000. There is no fee since it is still below the Php 8000 limit. The next day, you cashed in Php 2500. Since you went over the limit, there is a fee included with the cash-in but only for the amount over the limit. The cash-in that has the fee applied is the amount over 8000 this month: Php 8000 - Php 7000 = Php 1000 Then we subtract from the amount you are cashing in: Php 2500 - Php 1000 = Php 1500 The fee is 2% of the amount. Php 1500 * 0.02 = Php 30 So the total cash-in with the fee would be: Php 2500 - Php 30 = Php 2470 Any later cash-ins for this month will have a 2% fee after this.
If you are cashing in 7-11, and you’ve exceeded the Php 8000 limit, the 1% fee goes first (7-11 fee), then the 2% goes after (GCash fee).
For example, if you are cashing in Php 1000 in 7-11 after exceeding the Php 8000 limit, the cash-in fee for 7-11 applies first: Php 1000 - Php 10 (1% of Php 1000) = Php 990 Afterwards, the 2% fee from GCash applies: Php 990 - Php 19.80 (2% of Php 990) = Php 970.20 The net cash-in amount is Php 970.20.
Once you are near the limit, you will receive a notification in your Inbox informing you of the charges once you go past the limit.
Please take note that this is only for manual cash-ins — remittances and bank cash-ins are not included.
If you want to know how to circumvent this fee, you can refer to my fees page to see alternative solutions.
Why do we have these limits?
These are regulations from the BSP as GCash is keen to prevent money laundering.
When do these limits reset?
These limits reset on the first day of every month. So if you hit your limit in the middle of the month, you are out of luck.
