1. How much can I spend in total on FoodPanda?

In the foodpanda app, there is no cap on the quantity of food you may order, however there is one when utilizing the GCredit function of GCash.

Your credit limit ranges from P1,000 to P100,000 depending on your GScore and automatic increments.

2. How much is the interest if I pay using GCredit?

The interest rate for GCredit varies based on the user’s GScore and how quickly they pay their dues. It ranges from 1 to 7 percent, with an average of 4.5 to 5 percent.
