Add Money to Your Cash App Card

You have to have a checking, savings, or credit card account to draw from to use this method for adding cash to your Cash App card. Some credit cards do not allow the transfer of funds to Cash App, although you can use them as a funding source to pay others using Cash App.

  1. To add funds to your Cash App account, open the app and go to the Banking tab, which is the icon that displays your Cash App balance on the bottom, far left. If you have no money available in Cash App, that icon will look like a house or a bank building.

  2. In Banking, tap Add Cash.

  3. On the Add Cash screen, type the amount you want to add to your account and then touch Add.

How the Cash App Card Works

A Cash App Card is a card issued by Cash App that allows you to access any funds available in your Cash App account. This card carries a Visa logo, so it's usable in any store that accepts Visa. The card draws from the funds in your Cash App account. That includes money paid to you by others and money that you add to your Cash App account.

If you don't have a Cash App card, you can request one in Cash App by tapping the card icon in the bottom toolbar. It may take several days for your Cash App card to arrive.

How to Add Cash to Cash App Without a Bank Account

It is possible to add cash to your Cash App card without a bank, but you have to do it through other people. You can give a friend who has Cash App a payment and ask them to send it to you through the app. When you receive it in the app, you can use your Cash App card to access it.
