How to Send Money From Venmo to Cash App

The most efficient method is to link your Venmo and Cash App to a single bank so both can access your account balance.

There are 2 ways to transfer funds between Venmo and Cash App. Let’s look at each separately.

1. Add Cash App Card as a Bank Account for Venmo

If you link your Cash App account to your main bank account, it can function as another bank account.

You must first locate your Cash App’s account and routing details to set up a direct deposit. If you already have your Cash Card linked to your Cash App account, this will be a simple task.

Follow these steps to link a bank to your Venmo account:

  • On the Home Page of the Venmo app, look for a button with 3 horizontal lines at the top and click it.
  • The button will cause the Settings window to appear. Tap the “Payment Methods” button in that area. Then, pick “Bank” from the “Add a Bank or Card” menu.
  • Following that, you must authenticate yourself.
  • All you have to do now is enter the data printed on your Cash Card, or scan it with your camera.

Once linked, Venmo will leverage your Cash App account as if it were a bank to move money between them in the same manner that you would send or withdraw money from a traditional bank account.

You may now transfer money from your Venmo account to your Cash App account.

2. Link a Mutual Bank Account to Venmo and Cash App

The most efficient method is to link your Venmo and Cash App to a single bank so both may access your account balance. That way, you can transfer money from Venmo to the Cash App and vice versa.

First, transfer the balance of your Venmo account to your bank account.

Follow these steps to do it correctly:

  • Add the bank account you wish to link with your Cash App mutually.
  • Confirm that bank account using the methods listed.
  • Now, transfer the remaining funds to your bank account. On the Homepage of the Venmo app, look for a button with 3 horizontal lines at the top and click it.
  • Then click the “Transfer Money” or “Transfer to Bank” option.
  • Enter the amount of balance you want to transfer. Then select whether you want it “Instant,” which charges a small fee, or “1-3 Business Days,” which is free.
  • Select whether the transfer will be made using your bank account or a debit card. Make a point of reviewing and then confirming.
  • Once you’ve completed a thorough examination and are confident with the transaction, hit the “Transfer” button to proceed.

All you have to do now is switch to your Cash App and deposit the funds into your Cash App account.

To add the transferred balance to your Cash App from your bank account, follow these steps: 

  • Tap the Balance Tab on the Cash App’s home screen. Then choose Add Cash.
  • Enter the required amount and press the “Add” button to add it to your balance.
