Here’s a quick note: Before you proceed with this process, see to it that you’re connected to an internet connection or that your mobile data is turned on.
STEP 1: Download the GCash App
You can download the GCash (Gcash – Buy Load, Pay Bills, Send Money) mobile app on either Google Play or App Store. You can easily install this app for free with a working internet connection. Already got the app on your phone? Great! Then jump to STEP 3 right away.
STEP 2: Create a GCash Account
Get started and create your GCash account. There’s no required fee to go about this step. The app will guide you throughout the entire process until you get to fully set up your account. However, do make sure that you have an internet connection or at least mobile data to proceed. There should be enough “Available Balance” on your account before you can do any payment.
If you already have an existing GCash account, and assuming that you already have enough “Available Balance” on your account, simply enter your GCash mobile number, type in the authentication code sent to you via an SMS, and enter your PIN. Then you’re good to hop on to the next step.
STEP 3: Tap “Pay Bills”
Welcome to your GCash dashboard, assuming that you’re done with the first two steps. There will be different icons on the upper part of your screen, just below your “Available Balance.” Tap the icon for the “Pay Bills” and you will be directed to the “Pay Bills” page within the app.
STEP 4: Choose a Biller Category
There are a total of fifteen (15) Biller Categories to choose from, as of the moment, within GCash. Select the ”Electric Utilities” category by tapping on its icon.
STEP 5: Select BENECO
Under the “Electric Utilities” category are the alphabetically arranged list of GCash partner electric utility companies/organizations that accept bill payments. You may scroll up and down until you find the name you’re looking for or use the “Search” feature located at the uppermost part of your screen. Once found, tap on BENECO.
STEP 6: Fill in the Necessary Details
Enter your essential details such as your BENECO Account Number, BENECO Account Name, and the amount of payment. Also read the small text below, near the “Next” icon before you click. The text states “REMINDER: Your payment will be processed and you will be charged a convenience fee of PHP 5.00.”
STEP 7: Tap Next
Go over once again the details you’ve provided. Once everything looks good, tap “Next.”
STEP 8: See the Receipt
This marks the success of the transaction. You can also save a photo of your receipt or take a screenshot in case you need to. Posting period for BENECO payments made via Gcash will be the next business day.
