GCash Visa Card vs. GCash Mastercard: How Is It Different?

The GCash Visa card works the same way as the GCash Mastercard card. One of the main differences between the two is their appearance. 

There are important details on the front side of the GCash Mastercard, such as the number and expiration date. In spite of this, the name of the cardholder is not displayed. 

As opposed to that, the GCash Visa card adheres to a more minimalist approach. Cardholder names appear only on the front side of the card. The back of the card contains relevant information, including the card number, the expiration date, CVV code, and the virtual account number. 

It has already been several months since GCash turned off Mastercard card orders. Visa will be the only payment method going forward.
