Get your EMV GCash Mastercard!



  1. What is an EMV card?

EMV stands for Europay, MasterCard, and Visa. It is a global standard for credit, debit and prepaid payment cards based on chip based technology. This ensures that your card transactions are more secured against fraud.

Per mandate of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) Circular 936, debit cards and credit cards must be EMV-compliant by June 2018.
