A $Cashtag is a unique name that identifies an individual, professional, or business using Cash App. $Cashtags make it fast and easy to send and receive money.

If you’re using the Cash app, make sure you’re running the latest version for iOS or Android to access this feature. 

Once you’ve created a $Cashtag, you’ll have a personalized webpage where friends, family, customers, and even fans can make payments to you privately and securely. Your page will form a shareable URL at www.cash.me/$yourcashtag.

$Cashtag Requirements

  • $Cashtags can be 20 characters max.
  • You must include at least 1 letter.
  • You may only have 1 active $Cashtag per Cash App account. 
  • You must have an active debit card linked to Cash App to claim a $Cashtag.

Tips for Picking a $Cashtag

  • $Cashtags are not case sensitive, but the casing used when claiming a $Cashtag is how it will display publicly. For example, if you claim $Derek, it will display as $Derek publicly, but it’s the same as $derek.
  • $Cashtags can’t be reserved and are available first-come, first-served.

$Cashtag Unavailable

If you see that your preferred $Cashtag is unavailable or has already been claimed, you’ll need to select a different one.

There are a couple of reasons why a $Cashtag would be unavailable:

  • A $Cashtag can only contain alphanumeric characters (letters A-Z, numbers 0-9), so check to make sure your desired $Cashtag doesn’t contain symbols, dashes, or spaces.
  • Some terms may not be available for use in $Cashtags even if there isn’t an associated Cash.me page. 

Create or Edit a $Cashtag

There are a couple of ways to create and edit a $Cashtag: from your Cash app settings and online at Cash.me.  


  1. Open the Cash app and tap the icon in the top-left corner.
  2. Scroll down and tap Pick Your Unique Cash Name, or tap your existing $Cashtag to make edits. 
  3. Enter a $Cashtag > tap Set.
  4. Toggle Cash.me on to activate and begin getting paid with your $Cashtag.


  1. From a web browser, sign in to Cash.me.
  2. Click Edit Profile.
  3. Add or edit your $Cashtag within the $Cashtag field.
  4. Click Save.
  5. Toggle Cash.me on to activate and begin getting paid with your $Cashtag.

NoteA $Cashtag can only be edited twice. When you edit your $Cashtag, the previous version becomes inactive and can’t be claimed by another Cash App customer. You can switch back to a previous $Cashtag anytime from your app or online settings without it counting as an edit.
