Some stores like Walgreens, 7-Eleven, and Walmart allow you to deposit cash into your Cash App account. When the store cashier scans your unique bar code, you can deposit up to $500 into your Cash App account. Follow these steps to add cash from a retail store to your Cash App account:

  1. Search for the nearest store, allowing people to deposit cash into Cash App. To find one open Cash App, choose “Bank,” then select “Paper Money.” Cash App will access your location (make sure it’s turned on).

You can make a single deposit with each barcode. If you need to add more than $500 in a single sitting, you must generate another barcode and complete your transaction.

Move Cash From Cash App to Your Bank Account

If you need to use some of the money you’ve added to your Cash App outside of the app, you can deposit it (i.e., withdraw) into your bank account using the following easy steps:
