PayPal and Cash App are the two go-to banking platforms where we can send and receive money without any delay. Moreover, we can even invest in crypto and stocks via the Cash App. But is there a way in which you link these both accounts up? Can you link PayPal to the Cash App and make fund transfers between these two platforms easier? In this session, we have covered all possible ways on how to transfer money from PayPal to Cash App by linking these two accounts up.
Insufficient funds in your Cash App may lead you to wonder if you can transfer money from your PayPal account to your Cash App. However, you’d be disappointed to know that you can’t do the same.
There’s no direct way by which you can link PayPal to Cash App to make fund transfers between the two easier and hassle-free. As a matter of fact, you can’t even transfer money from PayPal to Cash App as there’s no direct way to do the same. However, you can certainly achieve the feat by two workaround methods that are tried and tested.
Let’s uncover what these ways are so you can enjoy the benefits of both PayPal and Cash App.
Can You Transfer Money From PayPal To Cash App?
You can’t directly transfer money from PayPal to the Cash App as there’s no direct way to do that. However, there are some workaround ways in which you can get the job done.
You can transfer money from PayPal to Cash App in two ways, namely,
1. Link PayPal And Cash App To Same Bank Account
2. Transfer Money From PayPal Cash Card To Cash App Visa Debit Card
You have to make use of lengthy methods like “linking bank accounts or debit cards” to make money transfers between PayPal and Cash App.
As there are no direct ways by which you can transfer money from PayPal to the Cash App, you should keep in mind that these two above-mentioned methods of money transfer do not offer flash results. Transferring money to the Cash App via PayPal through these methods takes time if you choose a “Standard” mode of transfer which usually takes between 1-3 business days (depending upon your bank).
Additionally, if you choose options like the “instant” mode of money transfer, then you should know that some charges are applicable in such cases. You should check the charging fees first before proceeding with this method.
Now that you know this basic information of money transfer via PayPal to Cash App, let’s walk you through the process. Below are the ways in which you can successfully withdraw money from PayPal and deposit it into your Cash App account.
How To Transfer Money From PayPal To Cash App?
To make money transfers between PayPal and Cash App, you can either link both platforms with the same bank account or you can make use of your PayPal or Cash App debit cards. Following both these methods will give you successful results (albeit, they both take time).
Here are ways and steps on how to transfer money from PayPal to Cash App successfully.
1. Link PayPal And Cash App To Same Bank Account
One way by which you can successfully transfer money from PayPal to Cash App is by linking the two banking platforms with the same bank account. If you add a bank account in your PayPal and make a transfer through your PayPal balance to that bank account, then the same amount will be reflected in your Cash App as it will be linked to the same account.
Here’s how you can do that.
Step 1: Log in to your PayPal account and link a bank account in the settings menu from the top left of your PayPal home screen.
Step 2: Log in to your Cash App and then link a new bank account by tapping on the “bank icon” from the bottom left corner.
Step 3: Now, open your PayPal app and then transfer money from your PayPal wallet to your linked bank account.
Once you have successfully added the same account in both your PayPal and your Cash App, make a fund transfer to the same bank from your PayPal account. This fund transfer might take time depending on the kind of method you chose (Instant or Standard money transfer).
After the fund transfer is successful, “Cash in” the same amount into your Cash App from the same linked bank account.
This was the indirect way in which you can transfer funds from PayPal to Cash App. If you don’t want to link bank accounts, then don’t worry! There’s another way that doesn’t require linking bank accounts (if you’re skeptical of doing that).
2. Transfer Money From PayPal Wallet To Cash App Visa Debit Card
Another and the most successful way to transfer PayPal money to Cash App is by doing it through a Cash App card. By adding a Cash App card to your PayPal bank account, you can directly transfer your PayPal wallet money into the Cash App.
Here’s how you can do that.
1. Link Cash App Debit Card To Your PayPal Account First
Step 1: Log in to your PayPal account in the PayPal app and click on “Settings or gear icon” on the top right from your PayPal home screen.
Step 2: Scroll down in your PayPal settings and tap on the “Banks and Cards” tab.
Step 3: “Link a new card” by hitting on the “+” icon on the top right.
Step 4: “Add Cash App debit card” by clicking on the “Debit or Credit card” option below the Bank Account option.
Step 5: Verify your PayPal account by Touch Id or by entering your password to proceed further.
Step 6: Add your Cash App debit card by tapping on the “Debit or Credit card” option under the “Link a card manually” tab.
Step 7: Enter your Cash card details like the Cash App card number, security code, expiration date, etc.
Step 8: Add the billing address (the same one you have set in your Cash card).
Step 9: Hit on the “Link Card” option to complete the process.
Once you have successfully linked the Cash card debit card to your PayPal account, transfer funds to this card like you usually do. Here’s how you can do that.
2. Transfer PayPal Funds To Your Cash App Debit Card
Step 1: In your PayPal account and click on your PayPal balance.
Step 2: Tap on the “Transfer” option below your PayPal balance.
Step 3: Click on “Transfer Money” from the prompt.
Step 4: Verify your PayPal account.
Step 5: Choose from the standard or Instant money transfer options.
Step 6: Choose the Cash App card to transfer money and enter the amount you want to transfer.
Step 7: Click on “Transfer” once you’re done with all the steps.
The same amount that you transferred will be reflected in your Cash App. The method might take 1-3 days depending on the kind of transfer you choose. If you have chosen the standard (free) transfer, then it will take time to process your transfer. However, if you choose Instant (with charges) then the transfer from PayPal will be reflected into your Cash App sooner.
Transferring funds from PayPal is super easy and the same goes for transferring PayPal wallet money to the Cash App too. Although no direct method is available by which you can send PayPal money to Cash App, you can certainly find other indirect methods to get the job done.
By linking the same bank account to your PayPal account and in your Cash App, you can share the funds between the two platforms (albeit, indirectly). You can also successfully transfer PayPal money to Cash App by linking the Cash App card to your PayPal account.
Any transactions done through these linked cards or banks from your PayPal account will be reflected in your Cash App too.
