This article will teach you how to accept money on the Square Cash app for Android and iPhone. The Cash app makes it possible to send or request money from other users using their unique #Cashtag username. When you receive your first payment on the Cash app, you will be asked to link your bank account or credit card. You can deposit your balance from the Cash app by using the Cash Out features.

The Square Cash app has a green icon with a white "$" sign. The first time you open the app, you will need to log in or register.

You can use someone's contact name, #Cashtag username, or cell phone number. You can also give the Cash app permission to access your contacts, so that you can choose a recipient between your contacts.
Step 5. Type a message
Use the 'Before' line to add a notice to the payment. For example: 'Need money for gas!' or "Money for dinner."

It's the button in the top right corner. Your payment request will now be sent via text message to your recipient's email or mobile phone.
Method 2 of 2: Cash out your balance
Step 1. Accept pending payments
When someone sends you money for the first time through the Cash app, the payment will be pending pending your approval. To accept a current payment, do the following:
