How to use your Cash Card after you sign up for and activate it in the Cash App


Cash Card on White

  • You can use the Cash App card, called the Cash Card, at retailers in the US that accept Visa, and to withdraw money from your ATM without an additional fee. 
  • Once you order and activate your Cash Card, it will be linked with your Cash App and you’ll be asked to assign a PIN number — then you can use it like you would any other debit card.

Cash App allows you to send money to friends, family, and vendors directly from your iPhone or Android phone. 

The mobile payment platform, owned by Square, launched a Cash Card in 2017. The card lets users spend their Cash App balance at eligible retailers, and withdrawal money from ATMs (without a fee) across the US. 

Basically it works just as you’d expect a debit card to work — purchases made using the Cash Card are taken out of your Cash App balance and cataloged on the Cash App.

Here’s what you need to know to use it.

How to use the Cash App card, called Cash Card

If you haven’t already applied for a Cash Card, you can follow these steps to order your card in the Cash App. 

Once your Cash Card comes in the mail, activate it using the Cash App. You will also be asked to assign a pin number to your Cash Card through the activation process, which you can change at any time. 

After you have activated your Cash Card, you’ll be able to use it at retailers in the US who accept Visa. If you’ve used your Cash Card to buy something and then ended up returning it, refunds can take up to 10 days to reflect back on your balance. 

In the Cash App, you can disable your Cash App card if you have temporarily misplaced it. If suspicious charges appear on your list of transactions, you can dispute them through Cash App support.

You can also add your Cash Card to Apple Pay or Google Pay in case you find yourself without your physical card.  

If you use your Cash Card to withdraw money from an ATM with a fee, Cash App will reimburse the fee, too, but only if your Cash Card receives a direct deposit of $50 or more a month. 

If you would like to keep a record of your Cash App transactions, you can download your statement using a desktop computer by going to > Statements > Export.
