Sending and receiving money is totally free and fast, and most payments are deposited directly to your bank account in minutes.

Cash App can be used to send and receive money with anyone through their phone number or £Cashtag, even if they are in another country! When you send a payment outside of your country, Cash App will convert the payment based on the mid-market exchange rate at the time the payment is created, and your recipient will receive the funds in their local currency.

  1. Open Cash App
  2. Enter the amount you would like to send

  5. Optionally, enter what the payment is for

Payments are subject to 3DS2, which will prompt you for identity confirmation prior to being sent. This will prompt you to verify information or login to your bank accounts website directly.
