Cash App (formerly known as Square Cash) is easy to use. Just follow the prompts, which ask you to enter a dollar amount and basic contact information of the person you’re sending to or requesting from. You can use phone numbers, email addresses, or $Cashtags (branded usernames specific to the Cash App platform).
To use the mobile Cash App platform, simply open the app, enter your dollar amount, and click “Request” or “Pay.” Enter the recipient’s email address, phone number, or $Cashtag. You can leave a brief note detailing what the payment is for. Then, click “Pay” or “Request” again to confirm.
The funds come in from your checking account via your debit card, and the payment goes to the recipient’s debit card or checking account, usually in one to five business days.
