Supported Cards with Square Cash

Square Cash supports standard, U.S.-issued AMEX, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover credit and debit cards. We don’t currently support ATM, PayPal, or prepaid bank cards.

Once you’ve linked a debit card to the app, you’ll have the option to link a credit card as well. If you have a credit and debit card linked, you’ll be prompted to select a card each time you send cash.

It’s important to note that payments sent from a credit card incur a 3% fee which is added to the payment total (i.e. if you send $50.00 from a credit card, you’ll see a $51.50 charge to your card). 

To link your card, you’ll need to provide:

  • The full card number
  • Expiration date
  • CVV (3-digit number located on the back of the card, or 4-digit number on the front if it’s AMEX)
  • Billing ZIP code

If you have any trouble linking or updating your card, our Support Center has helpful tips. Once you’ve linked an account, you can begin sending and receiving Cash.
