How to Add Cash in Cash App: Step-by-step Guide with Pictures

As the world moves closer and closer to a cashless society, it seems both fitting and ironic that one of the most salient contenders in the mobile e-wallet space is called Cash app. Users love it for its utter simplicity — add cash, spend cash. Rinse-wash-repeat — though hopefully with some discretion.

But in that simplicity, it can be confusing, with some users left staring at a green balance screen that looks a little too much like the dial pad of a phone. Below we’ll show you have to add cash in Cash App so you’re never out of cash (or, so that you can transcend the need for cash, rather)

Alternatively, you can scroll down to Link Bank Account and tap on it to bring up the debit card interface directly and fill out your details from there.
