How to Transfer or Convert Load to GCash in 2024

Convert Load to GCash

Your unused prepaid load may be sitting around and gathering dust, so you’re wondering if you can turn it into cash. What is the possibility of transferring or converting prepaid funds to GCash?

It’s not possible to convert the load to GCash using the GCash app. Before 2016, GCash offered Globe prepaid funds that could be converted to GCash. You would enter your phone number and load the amount on a now-defunct website ( GCash has evolved over the past few years and most users now use the mobile app, which lacks the feature to convert or transfer regular load to GCash.

Your load could previously be converted to GCash funds through the mobile app. To convert a prepaid load to GCash, click “Cash In,” select “Prepaid Load to GCash,” and then enter the desired conversion amount. A text message will be sent to you once the prepaid load has been converted.

YouTube videos also claim to instruct you on how to convert your extra load into GCash. Unfortunately, most of these videos teach a method that doesn’t work anymore. Share Treats provides instructions for purchasing a “treat” using your cellphone load, converting it to CLiQQ wallet balance, and then redeeming it for GCash at 7-Eleven convenience stores. Although you can still use your CLiQQ balance at 7-Eleven to purchase products, 7-Eleven no longer allows you to cash into GCash from CLiQQ.

Although the Share Treats/CLiQQ/7-Eleven method requires you to pay a lot of money for the convenience of stopping by 7-Eleven stores, making it unattractive even if it works.

However, all hope is not lost. This article will explain how to convert your unused load to GCash. You won’t get the exact cash equivalent of your prepaid load if you convert your load to GCash through these services.

Method 5: Convert Load to GCash with Load to Cash App

You can convert prepaid loads to GCash using Load to Cash, an Android app. GCash, PayMaya,, and selected banks accept Load to Cash payments, just like Load2Cash.

Currently, users are unable to leave reviews for the app (they can only send private feedback). As a result, we cannot ensure that the Load to Cash app is a legitimate and trustworthy service. This app is not recommended to users who have doubts or apprehensions about it. Due to the lack of reviews, we do not recommend using this app. Don’t use this app without thinking about the consequences!

This application calculates the fees charged by the network operator and the gateway or payment processor. For example, with a $500 load, there is a $60 telco fee plus a $200 gateway fee, which means you need to balance the load to get $300 in cash.

Traders with positive reviews from legitimate customers are much more likely to be trustworthy on Facebook since scammers are everywhere. Don’t trust a trader with your pre-paid load until you’ve read the comments, asked questions, and requested evidence of transactions.

Sell Your Prepaid Load for Cash

The old-fashioned way is another option if dealing with third-party services doesn’t appeal to you. If you wish to sell your prepaid load, you may do so and be paid through GCash by the other person.

It’s disadvantageous because you have to find someone who already has a GCash account, is on the same phone network, and is willing to sell your load. Wouldn’t it be more convenient for them to buy load directly from GCash?

GCash’s prepaid load can be purchased at a much lower price than on your site. As an example, you might be able to sell your ₱100 load for only ₱80. As a result, they will accept your offer since they can save money.

Your offer will be accepted after they accept the load, and they will send the money through GCash after acceptance. Alternatively, you can receive payment first before transferring the load, whichever is more convenient for both of you.

Taking your prepaid load to a Globe or Smart mobile number can be confusing if you don’t know how to do it.
