Steps to Activate your Cash App Debit Card from Mary Babb's blog

In addition to paying for items using Cash App, you can also receive money through the service for Personal Or Buisness purpose. Any money received sits in your Cash App account Balance and can be used when paying for something, with the balance topped up by your assigned debit or credit cards or bank account.

Alternatively, you can transfer or Cashout the money to one of your assigned bank accounts or cards.There can be a fee applied when you receive money to your Cash App account. For example, if you sell an item on eBay.Cash App also charges some fee on Cashout too but it is very less. 

However, the vast majority of uses are completely free to you on a personal basis. It is free to transfer money to friends or family through Cash App accounts, as long as there is no currency conversion required.

There are business Cash App accounts available too, which you can find out more about here. Cash App enables many businesses to accept card payments which they were unable to previously.

Cash App is often associated with eBay as it used to be owned by the online auction house. However, it was spun off as a separate company in 2015.

Why use Cash App?

While there are plenty of online payment systems these days, such as Apple Pay and Google Pay, Cash App offers a few additional benefits that others might not.

To begin with, its age means it is well established and widely accepted, even from smaller etailers. You will find a pay by Cash App option on thousands of websites that do not offer the same for Apple Pay or other digital financial services.

Its buyer protection safeguards will also ensure you get a refund if an item you buy online doesn't arrive or doesn't match a seller's description. This is especially useful when purchasing items on eBay, where you do not usually have shop guarantees.

Those selling items on a personal or business level and are paid through Cash App are also protected. For example, if you can provide proof that you sent an item by post yet the buyer claims not to have received it, you get to keep the full payment.

Another reason to use Cash App is that it offers an additional layer of security to payments. As you do not have to enter your card details or CCV number each time you purchase something, just your Cash App login and password or mobile number and PIN, the online store does not have your details in its database.

Sometimes you can also use OneTouch payments, where Cash App keeps you logged in if you activate the service and you do not have to enter your details each time you purchase something, no matter which store. That's because it is specific to a device and browser. For example, if you enable OneTouch on your PC, it will only work when you use that specific computer and the same browser.

There are dedicated Cash App apps for iPhone and Android devices.

How do I get a Cash App account?

It's easy to sign up for a Cash App account. You head to Cash and click the Sign up button. It'll ask if you want to sign up for a personal or business account and away you go. Don't forget to have your bank, credit or debit card details to hand though.

How to pay with Cash App?

Cash App works online and in stores through a browser or mobile application. There are dedicated apps for Android and iOS.

When paying online, you just need to look for the Cash App symbol and check out by following the simple instructions on screen. The apps do more though.

Thanks to many partnerships with stores and restaurants in your area, you get different options of how to pay for products, food or petrol, even order ahead to beat the queues in some food establishments and coffee shops. The app shows you a list of all the vendors nearby that accept each of the different Cash App options.

You can also add loyalty cards to your Cash App account, in order to gain loyalty points whenever you pay for something using the app. 

What is Cash App Credit?

Last year Cash App started its own credit service, where you can pay for items using Cash App but pay from them later. It's a lot like a credit card although you don't require an actual card.

It currently charges a (variable) purchase interest rate of 17.9 per cent per annum but as an incentive, you get 0 per cent interest on purchases of over 99 Euros for four months. So if you pay it back within that time, it won't cost you more than the original purchase price.

Some stores offer special deals when paying for products using Cash App Credit, with reduced interest rates depending on the retailer.
