Bill payment is right at the tip of your fingertips using the GCash and GCredit.

Good news, Iloilo City! MORE Iloilo Power subscribers can now pay their bill via GCash. Last August 21, 2021, the official Facebook Page of MORE Power Iloilo has announced that the public power utility company partnered with GCash for a more convenient way to pay monthly electric bills.
GCash is now the country’s largest mobile e-wallet service. The application is processing around P300 billion in monthly transactions as more Filipinos turn to cashless options. This e-wallet service provides financial access to Filipinos, especially the unbanked and underbanked segments.
Majority of the subscribers find this payment option a great addition. Facebook user Robert Alonday commended this additional payment gateway and encouraged other utility companies to provide the same service. Also, Clarissa May Beatingo, Boogz Sweyne Avelino and Rhea Leuterio Celestino are few people in the comment section who are grateful that GCash is finally accepting MORE Power payments.
For Clint T. Henarios, using GCash may not be the best option for him because there is a P10.00 transaction fee. He is planning to pay via Metrobank or Security Bank so he will not incur any fees. Michael De La Peña, counters that for unbanked users, paying P10.00 as service fee for GCash is way more practical because they can cut the money for commute or gasoline, skip the lines and simply use their smartphones to complete the payment. Clementyn Nardo agrees that the fee is reasonable because subscribers are using the application.
