GCash is a mobile wallet, mobile payments, and branchless banking service based in the Philippines. It was introduced in 2004 by Mynt (formerly Globe Fintech Innovations), a joint venture between Ant Group, an affiliate of Alibaba Group and the operator of the world's leading open digital lifestyle platform, Alipay; Ayala Group of Companies, one of the Philippines' largest business conglomerates; and Globe Telecom, one of the Philippines' largest telecommunications companies.
They had 20 million active users and over 63,000 retail partners in the Philippines as of 2019.These figures more than doubled in two years because of the rise of digital payments in the Philippines as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. With 46 million active users and 2.5 million merchants and sellers as of August 2021, GCash is truly the undisputed mobile wallet king in the Philippines.
