Recent research shows that mobile banking usage skyrocketed by 80% during the last decade. In contrast, traditional banks saw only a 30% rise. The pandemic was one of the aspects that accelerated this metamorphosis.

As a result, now, we have many mobile payment apps offering contactless transactions, and at the top of them is Google Pay.

According to research conducted in 2021, many prefer Google Pay because it offers smooth and easy payments to retailers and other consumers on the Internet using only their phones.

Moreover, Google Pay doesn’t charge any transaction processing fees. Therefore, it makes low-value transactions more cost-effective. However, the questions may occur regarding specific money transactions, like ones from Google Pay to Cash App.

Is it possible to transfer money from Google Pay to Cash App?

Google Pay application is an online transaction app created by Google that you can download from the Google Play Store. While the availability of some features depends on the country, Google Pay is a well-accepted payment method.

Some countries have a Google Pay version that offers a balance feature. It lets you make contactless, in-app, or online payments and money transactions to your linked bank account or debit card directly from Google Pay. According to Google, US, Indian and Singapore users can also send and receive money using Google Pay.

This feature makes it possible to transfer money from Google Pay to Cash App, but not directly.

As for the rest of the world, there is no way to transfer money from Google Pay to a Cash App account because the Google Pay version doesn’t support this feature. Therefore, you can only add your Cash App Card to the Google Wallet app and use the debit card for regular payments.

How can I transfer money from Google Pay to the Cash App?

If you aren’t from the country where this feature is available, there is no way to do it. However, you don’t particularly need it because you don’t have any balance on your Google Wallet or Google Pay account.

On the other hand, US and some other users can transfer funds out of their Google Pay account balance through a bank account and debit card.

One option to transfer money from Google Pay to Cash App is through a bank account. This way, you send money from a Google Pay account to your bank account and then add funds to your Cash App account.

However, a more straightforward way to transfer money from Google Pay to a Cash App account is through a Cash App Card. To do so, first, you need to add a Cash App Card to your Google Wallet.

Steps to add Cash Card to Google Wallet

To add a Cash App Card to Google Pay, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Google Wallet app.
  2. Find + Add to Wallet and click it.
  3. Select Payment Card and then New Credit or debit card.
  4. Enter all required details manually or upload a picture of the cash app card and confirm.
  5. Usually, you get a verification code to confirm the entire payment method.

Also, you can add your card to Google Pay from the Cash App. Here’s how you can do it:

  1. Open your Cash App and tap the Cash Card tab on the home screen.
  2. Choose Add to Google Pay.
  3. Follow further on-screen instructions.

When you finish, open your Google Wallet to check whether you have successfully added the Cash App Card to Google Pay.

Transfer money from a Google Pay account to a Cash App

When a Cash App card is added to Google Wallet, open the Google Pay balance on your account and select Transfer Out. Then, enter the amount, choose a payment method (in this case – Cash App debit card) and, once again, select Transfer Out.

Usually, money transfers from Google Pay to a Cash App Card are instant. However, remember that you’ll need to pay a fee of 1.5%. The minimum fee is $.31.

How do you transfer money from Cash App to Google Pay?

Once again, the answer differs. Users from countries other than the US, India, Singapore and a few others can’t transfer money from the Cash App to Google Pay. While these payment platforms offer services related to money transfers, their features and goals differ.

Therefore, in this situation, your only option to move funds from Cash App is to a bank account or a debit card and then to Google Pay.

In the countries where Google Pay Balance is available, users can easily add money to their Google Pay balance from a verified bank account or card after verifying their identity.

To do so, open the Google Pay app and follow these steps:

  1. Tap the profile icon on the top right corner of the Cash App home screen.
  2. Enter your Google Pay balance and select +Add money.
  3. Enter the amount and tap Next.
  4. Choose Cash App card as your payment method and tap Add.

The transaction should be completed immediately.

Cash App money transfer limit

According to the official Cash App website, you can receive and send up to $1,000 per 30 days. However, the limit can be higher if you have a verified account. To obtain it, you must provide your full name, date of birth, and Social Security Number (SSN).

If you want to check your transfer limit, tap the profile icon. Then, select Limits from the Account & Settings section. You should see how much money you can transfer using Cash App.


Can I transfer money from Google Play balance to Cash App?

Yes, however, only in the countries where Google Pay Balance is available. There, Google Pay offers a balance feature that lets users add and send money to a bank account or a card.

Therefore, if you have a Cash Card added to your Google Wallet, you can transfer money from Google Pay to it. This is the most direct way to transfer money from Google Play balance to Cash App.

Can you send cash with Google Pay?

You can send money using Google Pay only in the US, India, Singapore, and a few other countries. According to Google Pay, you can do it using a QR code or with the recipient’s name, phone number, or email address.

Can I use Google Pay to get cash?

You can get cash using Google Pay, but only on three conditions. First, you need to have a Google Pay payment app. It allows you to make contactless cash withdrawals.

Secondly, you need a phone that supports near-field communication (NFC) payments.

The third element is a cardless ATM. Not every ATM allows Google Pay contactless money withdrawals. Therefore, you should check it before you go to the ATM without your physical card.

What is a Cash Card?

The Cash Card is a free Visa debit card connected to the Cash App balance. You can add a Cash Card to Google Wallet to pay at the store or online from your account balance. However, there is a transaction limit of up to $7,000 per transaction.

What is Google Play balance?

Google Pay and Google Play are not the same. While one is a digital wallet and payment platform, the other is a digital distribution service.

Google Play balance is described as a credit. You can use it when buying games, apps and digital content on the Google Play store.

You can add money to your Google Play balance in various ways, for example, by redeeming Google Play gift cards, digital gift codes, Play Points for Play credits, or a promo code.
