Mobile Money

Mobile money or m-money is a payment service introduced by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) in Valenzuela City, through the Scaling Innovations in Mobile Money (SIMM) Project.

This payment service is done over a cellphone. Money is received and transferred in electronic form in real time. Mobile money is an easy, secure, and economical way to make transactions.

A mobile money account may be opened through BPI Globe BanKO, Globe GCash and Smart Money.

GCash

GCash is a mobile money service that transforms the cellphone into a virtual wallet, allowing customers to buy load, pay bills, send money, donate, and shop online.

At this point, the Globe GCash is the only available payment service for settling government fees and taxes at the City Government of Valenzuela.

Soon taxpayers may pay via other mobile money brands Smart Money and BPI Globe BanKO.

Transactions are posted in the taxpayer’s ledger. A taxpayer can check if the transaction has been posted by sending GCash an inquiry. GCash will respond with a billing statement indicating zero tax due.
