(Editor's Note. On Sept. 30, 2020, after this story was published GCash said transfer fees were moved to Nov. 1 instead of Oct. 1 as earlier announced)

(UPDATE) Mobile wallet platform GCash will start charging a convenience fee for bank transfers starting Oct. 1, an in-app advisory said.

Those looking to transfer funds to a bank were greeted with a small disclaimer notifying them of such charges. However, no amount or percentage was specified. GCash told reportr that an advisory was forthcoming on Sept. 28 and that transfers are free until Sept. 28.

UPDATE: GCash Cash In, Cash Out Fees from Nov. 1
