    Hi, I tried paying using Gcash with the Bayad Center outlet options but it won’t push through and keeps on giving me an invalid transaction number error. I checked on the articles and saw that you previously have a mobile payment or multipay option but it’s no longer on the site. Does it mean that you can no longer use GCash as payment option? Thanks!
