How to Compute GCredit Interest?

For average users who have just unlocked GCredit, GCash initially offers 10,000 pesos credit limit with 5% interest rate but If you pay your bills earlier, you can get lower interest rates.

For the interest computation, it’s the amount borrowed x 5% interest rate x (# of Days Borrowed/ 30 Days).

Illustration:

You borrowed P1500 today and pay it in 10 days. Your interest will only be P25. To settle your credit balance, you’ll have to pay is P1525.

P1500 x 5% x 10/30 = P25 (interest)

Borrowed amount —   P1500

Interest —————-     +   25

                                    P1525

 

If you pay the loan back in 30 days, the total amount to be paid to settle your balance is P1575.

P 1500 x 5% x 30/30 = P75 (interest)

Borrowed amount —   P1500

Interest —————–    +   75

                                    P1575

 

 

How to pay GCredit?

For instance, you have P10000 GCredit. You used P1500 to pay for your meal today. If you paid it back after three days together with the interest then your credit returns to P10000, and you can use your maximum limit again even before your due date.

To pay for your GCredit, you need to have sufficient Gcash balance. Then, select “Manage Credit” tab. Next, tap “Pay for Credit”.

To have enough Gcash balance you can cash-in through e-wallets, banks, over-the-counter and more.

Conclusion:

As GCredit functions like a flexible loan it made borrowing money accessible and easier. They just have to be responsible enough to pay back their bills on or before the due date and maintain their good credit line to be eligible in borrowing again with an increased credit limit.
