Purchase of Tugrik Now Available Through GCash

by majidemo on Jul 04, 2019 - 4:47 PM CST

Hello Khanatics,

 

Since GCash is now available on all networks we'd like to re-offer you this payment method again for buying tugirks.

 

What's so great about GCash is you can use multiple methods to cash-in. Because of this convenience we have decided to only accept payment through Paypal and GCash for now since GCash itself accepts payments through Cebuana and Palawan Pawnshop.

 

We understand, like most changes, it is a bit confusing and hard to accept at first. But after a while we hope that this change would give you better convenience.

 

Thank you for understanding.
