Cash App is a mobile peer-to-peer money transfer service that allows users to easily send and receive money from family and friends.
Once you have a balance on your Cash App account, you can withdraw the money in two ways:
Transfer to your bank
Spend the money using a Cash App Card
The following article will describe the Cash App Card in detail.
What is a Cash App Card?
A Cash App Card is a Visa debit card issued by Cash App, which you can use to access the funds inside your Cash App account. Rather than transferring the money from Cash App to a traditional bank, this card allows you to directly spend your Cash App funds at retailers (online and traditional), and withdraw funds from ATMs.
Your Cash App Card is reloadable so Cash App can also serve as your primary bank. This is a decent option for those with a negative checking account history who have problems qualifying for a checking account at a traditional bank.
How does the Cash App Card Work?
The process is simple so there isn’t much to explain:
Let’s pretend your friend sent you $250 for some concert tickets
Your Cash App balance is now $250
Order your tickets online and pay $220 by entering your Cash App Card numbers just like it was any other debit or credit card.
Your Cash App balance is now $30
