How To Transfer Money From PayPal To Cash App?

PayPal and Cash App are the most widely used payment platforms today. Some users have accounts on both platforms and have been wondering if it’s possible to send money from PayPal to Cash App. In this article, I will provide a full answer to this question.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to directly transfer money from a PayPal account to a Cash App account or vice versa. However, you can send money through a bank account that’s linked to both platforms or by adding your Cash App card to your PayPal. 

Currently, there is no compatibility or cooperation between PayPal and Cash App, making it impossible to send funds directly from one platform to the other. However, there are ways to work around this limitation and send money from one platform to the other. I will discuss these methods below.

Can I link my Cash App card to PayPal?

Yes, it is now possible to link your Cash App Visa Debit Card to your PayPal account, which was not possible a few years ago. To add your Cash App card to your PayPal account, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your PayPal account through the app or website.
  2. Click on the gear-shaped icon (Settings) in the top right corner of the PayPal home screen.
  3. In the options that appear, select “Bank and Card.” Here, you’ll be able to see all the connected cards.
  4. Click on “Add” or the “+” sign in the top right corner to add a new card.
  5. Select “Add debit card.”
  6. You may be prompted to give your touch ID or enter the security number on your Cash App Visa Debit Card.
  7. Select “Add card manually.”
  8. Enter the 16-digit debit card number and press the “Next” tab.
  9. Enter the CVV number and expiration date of your Cash App Visa Debit Card.
  10. Enter your billing address and hit the “Link card” tab.

Once your card is successfully linked, it will be available as a funding source, and you can start spending from it.

Another way to transfer money between PayPal and Cash App is to link the same bank account to both platforms. If you have the same bank account linked to your PayPal and Cash App, you can send money from PayPal to Cash App through the bank account and vice versa. To transfer money from Cash App to PayPal, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your Cash App account.
  2. Tap the “Balance” tab.
  3. Press “Cash Out”
  4. Enter the amount you wish to transfer to your linked bank account.
  5. Confirm the transfer.
  6. Log in to your PayPal account
  7. Add the transferred funds from your bank account to your PayPal account.

Note: Be aware of any transaction fees your bank may charge for these transfers.

Transfer money from Cash App to your Bank Account

To transfer money from Cash App to your linked bank account, which can then be added to PayPal, follow these steps:

  • Launch the Cash App on your Android or iPhone device.
  • Go to the “My Cash” tab (by tapping the dollar amount) on the home screen.
  • Click on the “Cash Out” button located to the left of your account balance.
  • Choose the amount you want to send to your bank account and select “Cash Out.”
  • On the “Cash Out” menu, you’ll see your total account balance automatically selected for transfer. If you wish to transfer less, input the desired amount here.
  • Choose the type of transfer you want: instant or standard. Keep in mind that the standard transfer option will take 3 days for the funds to reflect in your bank account, while the instant option will transfer the funds almost instantly but comes at a charge of 1.5%.

Your bank account should already be linked to PayPal. If not, log in to PayPal and click on “Profile” then “Account” tab and select “My Money” from the drop-down menu. Click on “Update” and provide your bank information then select the “Add Bank Account” button. You’ll need to confirm your bank account after that.

Note: Be aware of any transaction fees your bank may charge for these transfers.

Transfer Money from Bank to PayPal

After the money you transferred from Cash App has arrived in your linked bank account, you can now send the funds to your PayPal account by following these steps:

  1. Log in to your PayPal account through the app or website.
  2. Navigate to “My Account” which you’ll find right below your PayPal balance.
  3. Choose the “Add Money” option.
  4. Select your desired bank account, if you’ve linked more than one, and enter the amount you want to transfer to your PayPal balance.
  5. Double-check the transaction details to confirm there are no errors and then click “Continue” and “Submit” to initiate the transfer process.
  6. The amount will reflect in your PayPal balance within 3 days.

Note that you don’t have to transfer funds from your bank to your PayPal balance. You can use your bank account as a funding source for PayPal or you can add a PayPal card to your Cash App and start spending from it. Be aware of any transaction fees your bank may charge for these transfers.
