Why can't I use a credit card on cash App?

Square Cash App does offer the feature of adding a credit card and let the user make payment using a credit card. But, what many people don't know is that Cash App doesn’t support those credit cards which apply the additional charges. For example, a few days ago, David Clark from Texas shared his experience. 

He informed the representative that he was not able to link his credit card to his Square wallet. Upon a short investigation, experts found out the customer was using the CitiBank credit card. After a bit more research, we came to know that Citi Bank applies the additional fees over making any transaction through Cash App. That's why Cash App was automatically not accepting the card in advance.

Therefore, it is relevant to say that Cash App does not support all those bank's credit cards which charge additional fees for withdrawing money through any application. However, till the time when we posted this blog, we were still in search to find out the name of other banks whose credit card is not supported by the Cash App because of additional charges other than EMI, Interest and processing fees.

Why does Cash app keep saying my card is invalid?

As you know that Cash App lets the users link bank accounts as well. More specifically if we say, users can link the bank account with the help of the valid and activated debit card only. Adding a debit card is not only beneficial but also mandatory before adding the credit card. I mean, you will not get the option of adding the credit card to the Cash App unless you link the debit card to your Square Cash App first. Find below a few more possible reasons for being not able to add a credit card.

  • Temporarily hold or ban credit cards.
  • Entering wrong card details like incorrect card number, CVV and expiration date.
  • Using a deactivated and expired card could also be a reason.
  • Cash App does not support any card which is not supported by the USA bank.
  • You can use and link only the USA bank's cards.
