You will need to link your bank account to the Cash App on iPhone or Android before you start.
To send a request to receive money:
- Open Cash App on your device.
- For requesting money, click the dollar sign “$” tab located at the bottom of the screen.
- In the bottom-left corner, click “Request” after entering an amount.
- Request money from a person (or persons) using the suggested people or manually entering their email, phone number, or $cashtag. It is also possible to add a note, if you would like, to remind them what it is for.
- Click the green “Request” button at the top right of your screen.
What happens if someone doesn’t accept your cash app payment?
Upon requesting money from someone, that person has 14 days to accept or decline the request. The request will expire automatically after 14 days if they do not respond.
Your balance will be credited instantly when you receive a Cash App payment. After that, you can either Cash Out on your linked debit card or send the money to friends or family.

How to receive money on Cash App by accepting a payment?
Cash App also allows people to pay you without requesting you first. Payment from this person will automatically be added to your account if you have already received money from them before.
It is necessary to manually accept the payment if this is the first time this person has paid you through Cash App.
To accept a payment:
- Select the “Activity” tab by tapping the clock icon at the bottom of the screen.
- At the top of the screen, you’ll find a “Pending” section that lets you know if others haven’t finished requests you’ve made. Payments that are pending may also appear with a green “Accept” button. New users will make these payments for the first time. Just tap “Accept” when they send money.
- Upon hitting accept, a pop-up on your screen will ask you to confirm that you would like to be paid by this individual. Then tap “Done.” “Confirm” is at the bottom of the screen.
You will not have to confirm or take any action if this person sends you money in the future – it will automatically be deposited into your Cash App account.
