Can You Transfer Money from Cash App to NetSpend? [Answered!]

Can you transfer money from Cash App to NetSpend? You are not alone in wondering if these two popular financial tools can be linked to make sending, receiving, and spending money on the go easy.

Indirectly though, there are workarounds that make NetSpend to Cash App transactions possible.

This post directs you on how to transfer Cash App money to your NetSpend card through third-party money transfer services.

Can You Transfer Money from Cash App to NetSpend?

Though you can’t move money directly from Cash App to Netspend, there are workarounds that make NetSpend to Cash App transactions possible.

This is made possible through the similar functionalities between the two services.

While there is no way of linking the two, both allow users to link digital wallets to a personal bank account.

All you need is to link your accounts to a shared bank account to move funds between your NetSpend account and Cash App account.

Cash App Vs. Netspend

Cash App is not a bank account but rather a mobile payment app that is linked to your bank account.

You can send and receive money from the bank account, and send the same to friends or pay for goods and services using just an email, phone number, or a unique username ($cashtag).

On the other hand, NetSpend is a service that provides users with a prepaid debit card.

The service allows the linking of different financial accounts from both banks and digital wallets like PayPal for ease of transfer of funds.

Similar to Netspend, Cash App provides routing numbers for direct deposit services. Both tools also provide users with debit cards that can be used online and at participating merchants.

While the Cash app uses cashtag, Netspend uses FlashPay ID to send and receive money from the bank account, send the same to friends, or pay for goods and services.

What is FlashPay On Netspend?

FlashPay is an e-purse application used to provide NetSpend Cardholders with unique usernames and the framework necessary for sending and receiving money through the NetSpend prepaid card.

Known as NetSpend FlashPay, the service provides you with a FlashPay ID that you can share, together with your name, for family, friends, and other depositors to add money to your NetSpend account.

FlashPay ID is free. You get it after signing up for a NetSpend account and ordering your NetSpend prepaid debit card. Once approved, log in to your Online Account Center to get the ID.

Do I Need FlashPay ID to Transfer Money to Cash App?

No, FlashPay ID does not work with Cash App.

FlashPay is the equivalent of $cashtag on Cash App, just like a Cash App Cash Card serves a similar purpose to a NetSpend Debit Card.

To send money on Cash App, you need a cashtag which can be an alphanumeric code or name that starts with a “$”, of not more than 20 characters. However, a FlashPay ID is a 10-digit number.

How to Transfer Money from NetSpend to Cash App?

Since there is nothing like a FlashPay ID Cash App feature, your only option is to use your PayPal account to move funds from your NetSpend to a bank account that’s linked to your Cash App.

NetSpend and PayPal can be linked, which makes the transfer of funds between the two tools seamless.

How to Send Money from NetSpend to Cash App?

  • Launch PayPal and log in to your account.
  • Click Add Money Online.
  • Select NetSpend account when prompted for source of funds.
  • Key in the amount and other required details to complete the transfer.

ADDITIONAL THOUGHT: You can as well make an ATM withdrawal using your NetSpend card and then use the funds to make a physical money Cash App deposit.

Can You Transfer Money from Cash App to Netspend Card?

You can’t transfer money from Cash App to Netspend Card, however, you can indirectly move money from your Cash App to a NetSpend Prepaid card.

Currently, Cash App is not supporting prepaid cards except for some government-enabled prepaid cards that are typically not linked to any bank account.

This calls for a workaround involving transferring money from Cash App to your linked bank account, then transfer the funds from the bank account to your NetSpend account.

For this method to work, the bank account has to be shared between your NetSpend and CashApp.

You can also add an extra step, involving PayPal when making the transfer:

Cash App >> Linked Bank Account >> PayPal (3rd Party Wallet) >> NetSpend.

NetSpend FlashPay limits transactions and amounts in line with federal regulations. Both purchase transactions and over-the-counter withdrawals are capped at $4,999.99 every 24 hours.

Transfers between PayPal and NetSpend cannot exceed $300 per day and $2,000 per 30 days (rolling).
