Today I’m going to walk you through how to send and receive money with Cash App. Cash App allows you to send and receive money, invest in stocks or Bitcoin, receive your paycheck, etc. without going through a bank. You’ll want to start by downloading the app. Once you have it opened, you’ll choose a financial account to link. The app will walk you through the process and you’ll have the options of linking one debit card, one credit card, and one bank account.
Once your account or accounts are linked, you’ll be able to see what your cash balance is. You’ll have the option to add cash or cash out. “Cash out” simply means you can retrieve the funds people have sent you through the app.
Here’s how you will send or receive money with Cash App.
In the app, find the Cash App logo or green dollar sign ($) at the bottom middle of the screen.
At this point, you can request to be paid or you can pay someone else.
To pay someone else, first type in the amount of money you want to send. Then you will hit the “Pay” button at the lower right of the screen.
You will be prompted to put in a name, $Cashtag, phone, or email in order to identify who to send the money to.
Once you select the person you’d like to send money to, you can include a note if you’d like.
After that, all that’s left to do is tap the green “Pay” button in the top right corner and you’ll receive a confirmation that your money has sent shortly after.
*Note – the other person MUST accept the payment for the transaction to fully process. The other person can delete the payment if you sent the wrong amount or a change needs to be made.
Cash App also gives each user a $Cashtag or Cash code that looks like a QR code. This code can be sent to other people so they always have your info handy when they need to send you money. To use this option, click on the square icon in the top left of the screen. This will bring up a reader that can scan the Cash code. You can see what your cash code looks like under the square icon.
To request money from someone else, the steps are very similar. First, type in the amount of money you want to receive. Then you will hit the “Request” button at the lower left of the screen.
You will be prompted to put in a name, $Cashtag, phone, or email in order to identify who to request money from.
Hit the “Request” button at the top and you’re done!
To check your activity or history in Cash App, just hit the clock icon in the lower right corner. You should be able to see all pending or completed transactions. If you have any questions about sending or receiving money in Cash App, make sure to leave those in the comments below.
