How to transfer money from your bank to Cash App

 

You can transfer money from your bank account to Cash App by doing the following:

  1. Open Cash App and tap the Money tab.
  2. Tap Add Cash.
  3. Choose the amount you wish to transfer.
  4. Tap Add.

Note that for this to work, you must have a bank account linked to your Cash App first. You can do this when you sign up for Cash App, or at any time after your account is up and running.

If you want to load your Cash App account in-store, Cash App maintains a list of retailers where this is possible. As of the time of writing this article, these include:

  • Walmart (Customer Service Desk or Money Centers)
  • Walgreens

How to load your Cash App at a store

Once you find a location where you can load your Cash App account in-store, here’s what to do when you get there:

  1. Upon arrival, tell a cashier you want to load funds into your Cash App account using your barcode. If they don’t understand, open Cash App > Banking > Paper Money and tap the “?” button to show them the instructions for doing so.
  2. Tap Show Barcode to bring up your barcode.
  3. Show the barcode to your cashier and have them scan it.
  4. Depending on the store or location, you may need to accept a fee from the retailer to deposit funds in-store. It’s usually between $1 to $4 but may vary based on the retailer and location.
  5. Be sure to request a receipt.

Sometimes, a cashier may require you to swipe your Cash Card to perform the paper money deposit. If this happens, politely inform the cashier they have to scan the barcode in the app for the deposit to work, not the card. Your barcode will expire after around 10 minutes, and if you want to perform another deposit after that time, you must do the above steps again.

Some stores may require ID verification before performing the deposit. Be sure to bring your ID to a store before depositing funds in case this is required.

You may deposit up to $1,000 per rolling seven days and $4,000 per rolling 30 days. You must deposit at least $5, and you cannot exceed a deposit of $500 per transaction.
