What is a Cash App Card?

Just like a debit card from your bank, a Cash card is a physical card that is linked to your Cash App account. Payment processing for the card is provided by VISA and allows you to pay for goods and services online and in physical stores all over the U.S.

Any seller that accepts VISA cards will accept your Cash App card. You can also use your Cash App card to withdraw cash from any ATM

How Does a Cash App Card Work?

The Cash App card is a free VISA card that you can use to buy goods and services online and in stores. 

The Cash App card is available free of charge to anyone with a verified Cash App account. As soon as you verify your account, you will be able to order a card. 

Cash App Card Features

You can customize your card in different ways to give it a unique look. You can specify the color and signature on the card, and choose emojis to be printed on it.

You can also use your Cash card as soon as you order it, even before you receive the physical card. You can use your Cash card details to make online purchases. Simply follow the steps below:

  1. Select the Cash Card tab on your Cash App home screen
  2. Tap the image of your Cash Card
  3. Select “Add to Google Pay” or “Add to Apple Pay”
  4. Follow the respective prompts after that.

You can also use the card details given in the Cash Card tab to make online payments.

The Cash App card offers cash withdrawals at any ATM for a $2 fee per withdrawal. The ATM operator may also charge a fee. However, if you use your Cash App account to receive $300 or more in direct deposits per month, Cash App will instantly reimburse you for some ATM operator fees. Cash App only reimburses up to $7 in fees per withdrawal and only for 3 withdrawals in 31 days.

You can avoid ATM fees by using your Cash App card to get cashback in a store that supports this service. You will not have to pay any additional fees, but keep in mind the cashback amount will count towards your withdrawal limits for security purposes.
