It’s easy to link your GCash account to your Apple iTunes Account, just like what we can do with Google Play (and with any Google Service in general). This allows you to buy apps, games, music, movies using your GCash account.
The advantage of this is you won’t need to link your GCash Mastercard or AMEX cards to the account, and you can approve any purchase as long as you have funds in your GCash account.
What do I need to start?
You need your IPhone or any Apple device with you to be able to confirm the linking via your MPIN and OTP.
Do I need to have funds in my GCash to pay in iTunes?
Yes, since GCash is considered as a cash/debit transaction, you will need to fund your wallet first before you can pay.
How do I put funds into my GCash account?
Can I use GCredit to pay?
Yes, you can now use GCredit to pay in Apple. However, it’s used as a backup when you don’t have any balance in your GCash wallet. You can enable this option under your GCredit.
How do I link my GCash payment method with Apple?
It’s fairly simple, you can do this with any Apple device. You need the GCash app installed and you need to be logged into your account. If you have an iTunes app on your PC, you can set this up using that. Once your account has been linked, any payment should be able to use your GCash as the primary method.
- From your iTunes app, go to your Account Settings
- From your Account page, click on “Manage Payments”
- Select GCash, then click on the “Log in to GCash” option.
- If your GCash app is installed, there would be an opt-in page you need to fill out
- Once filled out, you would see the successful page and the GCash method would show up under Payment Methods
How do I keep track of my subscriptions in Apple?
Similar to the instructions above, you need to go your Account Settings then go to the Subscriptions section and individually cancel the unessential ones.
