How to Add Physical Cash to Cash App In-Store

Now that you know WHERE you’re going to add your cash to your Cash App, the next thing to know is HOW to add cash to Cash App once you get there.

Most cashiers SHOULD know this process but if they don’t, it’s good for you to know just in case.

I mean who wants to waste their time being turned away because the cashier doesn’t know how?

I know I don’t.

Here’s how to add physical cash to your Cash App account in-store:

  • Step 1: After you’ve tapped on the location you’re at or planning to go to using Cash App (Remember I showed you how in the section above), it will bring up a window with driving directions as well as details about where in the store you’re supposed to go to make your transaction. This is why I suggest NOT tapping the green “Show Barcode” button in the section above (you’d miss important info).

  • Step 2: Once in the store, tap on the “Show Barcode” button. You don’t want to do this too early because the barcodes do expire after a period of time.
Keep the expiration time in mind
Keep the expiration time in mind
  • Step 3: Go to the designated area found in step 1. Then explain to the cashier that you’re wanting to add cash to your Cash App and ask them to scan the barcode.
  • Step 4: Hand the cashier your cash and they will add that amount to your Cash App account.

That’s it!

Funds should be available immediately in your Cash App (or almost immediately anyway).

It is recommended that you keep the receipt from the cashier just in case there are any issues though.

Don’t forget…

Adding cash to your Cash App like this ISN’T free and will cost you a fee.

Why Can’t I Add Paper Money to Cash App?
