User Query: Hi, I am James from Los Angeles. I have one question to ask. My brother has gifted me a Vanilla Visa gift card on my birthday. It is loaded with $500. I know there are many ways to redeem this super popular Vanilla Visa gift card but I want to purchase Bitcoin through this gift card. I wonder whether or not I can link my Visa gift card to Cash App and use it as a payment method on Cash App. Kindly clear my doubts about the Cash App gift card.

Square Cash App is one of the most popular money transfer apps available in the US. With Cash App one can not only store money but make fast payment, send and receive payment. In comparison to many other payments apps such as PayPal, Apple Pay, and Google Pay; Cash App is not behind in any term except one thing and that is gift card. There is no gift card on Cash App. That's to say that Cash App does not sell its own gift card. Apart from gift cards, Cash App doesn't have prepaid cards as well. Here below is more information about Cash App Visa gift cards.
If you open a Cash App mobile application or login to your Cash App account on Cash App site, you will not find any way to buy a gift or prepaid card. Though you can use your Cash App card balance to buy gift cards from PayPal, Google Play. Also, if you wish you can buy an Apple gift card as well with ease of mind. To do so, all you need is just visit any Apple Store and choose a gift card and make payment using your Cash App card. Note that a Cash App card is acceptable as a payment method where Visa and Mastercard work.
Can you use a Visa gift card on Cash App? The answer to this question is- No. You can't add a gift card. It further means that you can't transfer money from your Visa gift card to Cash App account. However, this is not the case with prepaid cards. With that being said I mean there are some government-enabled prepaid cards that you can use on Cash App with ease of mind. More specifically, what you can do with such cards is you can transfer money from a government-enabled prepaid card to your Cash App or make a purchase but you can’t send money from your Cash App to any prepaid card.
Adding any unsupported prepaid card on Cash App always leads to an error "Prepaid cards aren't supported by Cash App. Please try linking another debit card". If you have any government-enabled prepaid card that you can add and use as a payment method on Cash App by following the below mentioned steps.
Before you proceed let me clear one important thing and that one can have only one debit and one credit card on Cash App. Hence, in order to add a government enabled prepaid card , first you will be required to delete your already linked debit card.These are the complete stepwise instructions.
