Globe GCASH

How-To Activate Your GCASH Virtual Wallet

There are four (4) ways to activate your GCASH Virtual Wallet, provided you have a Globe Mobile or TM (Touch Mobile) SIM card (postpaid or prepaid): [1] Unstructured Supplementary Service Data or USSD; [2] GCASH Mobile App (available in Android, BlackBerry, and iOS); [3] SIM Card “Globe” Menu; and [4] good ol’ text and send to 2882.

Choosing any of the methods above will work but why should you, right? To convince you, I provided a brief introduction in this post: What is Globe GCASH.

Welcome back. Below you will find the steps to activate your GCASH Virtual Wallet, choose the method you prefer.

I. Activate the USSD way

  1. Dial *143# using your Globe or TM SIM (postpaid or prepaid)
  2. Once the menu appears, select GCASH
  3. A new menu will show, select Register
  4. You will be asked to key-in your personal information, be sure to provide your real identity (larger limit and over-the-counter cashout, for example, requires a matching valid ID, so make sure the information you submit matches your government ID!)
  5. Wait for the SMS confirmation
  6. Done!

II. Activate by Downloading the GCASH Mobile App

  1. Download the GCASH Mobile App for your mobile OS, simply scan the official QR Code below:
  2. Run the app and select New to GCASH?
  3. Provide your personal information and be sure to type your real identity (larger limit and over-the-counter cashout, for example, requires a matching valid ID)
  4. Wait for the confirmation
  5. Done!

III. SIM Card “Globe” Menu

  1. On your Globe/TM SIM Card, look for the “Globe” Menu (or “SIM Menu” or “SIM Toolkit”; depending on your OS and phone manufacturer terminology)
  2. Tap the GCASH menu option
  3. Tap Register
  4. Just like above, provide your real identity (larger limit and over-the-counter cashout, for example, requires a matching valid ID)
  5. Wait for the SMS confirmation
  6. Done!

IV. The SMS/Text Way

  1. Type in: REG <4-digit PIN/mother’s maiden name/first name/last name/address> — Provide your real information! (larger limit and over-the-counter cashout, for example, requires a matching valid ID)
  2. Send it to 2882
  3. Wait for the confirmation
  4. Done!
