GCash activation

Upon your account's activation with us, please expect around 5 business days for your account to be activated for GCash transactions. Test transactions can still be made.

Before you begin

Available payment methods

  • Cards: Visa and Mastercard
  • E-wallet: GCash
  • In the works: GrabPay

Supported currency
Your Shopify store must be set in Philippine peso (PHP) to use PayMongo. It will not work for other currencies.

Installing multiple payment methods
The cards and GCash methods have to be installed separately. Make sure to follow step #4 which can be found below.

If you have a Shopify store, you can integrate with PayMongo with no coding at all! All you'll need is an activated PayMongo account.

  • If you don't have a PayMongo account, you can sign up here
  • If you have an account but haven't activated yet, activate your account here
