What is a £Cashtag?

A £Cashtag is a username and unique identifier for individuals and businesses using Cash App.

Choosing a £Cashtag

£Cashtags are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Your £Cashtag must include at least 1 letter and be no longer than 20 characters.

To claim a £Cashtag, you must also have an active debit card linked to your Cash App.

The casing used when choosing a £Cashtag is how it will display publicly. However, £Cashtags are not case sensitive. For example, £Derek will display as £Derek, but it’s the same as £derek.

If the £Cashtag you prefer has already been claimed, you’ll need to choose another. A £Cashtag could also be unavailable because it contains symbols, dashes, or spaces.

Choosing a £Cashtag automatically creates a shareable URL (£yourcashtag) where friends, family, and customers can make payments to you privately and securely.

Editing Your £Cashtag

You can edit your £Cashtag at any time for a maximum of two times, but you can switch back to a previous £Cashtag once you have hit this limit.

To edit your £Cashtag in Cash App:

  1. Tap your profile icon
  2. Select Personal
  3. Tap on your £Cashtag
  4. Enter your desired £Cashtag and tap Set
Remember, you can only edit your £Cashtag twice. Once a £Cashtag is claimed, even if it becomes inactive, it can’t be claimed by another customer – it’s reserved for you. You can switch back to a previous £Cashtag anytime. This limit is to prevent one customer from claiming too many £Cashtags.

If you are having trouble switching your £Cashtag, please contact Support through your app and give us three options that you would like your new one to be, in order of most to least desired. If any of them are available we can change it for you.
