Check if the service is offline

Since the Cash app relies on an online service, it is possible that the service might be down, affecting connectivity for everyone. For many online services, you can check the status at Descent detectorbut Cash App offers a better option: Cash App has its own status page, which can tell you if specific services like Send and Receive Money, Cash Card, Direct Deposits, and Add Money are working properly. If the service you need is offline, there is nothing you can do but wait for the problem to be resolved.

Check your internet connection

If you’re having trouble logging into the Cash App or making a transaction from your mobile device, chances are you’re experiencing internet connectivity issues. The Cash app must be able to be online, of course, either via Wi-Fi or your phone’s cellular service. Make sure you see a strong Wi-Fi or cellular signal in the status at the top of the phone screen. If you’re not sure if you have reliable service, try using another app that accesses the internet to make sure your connection isn’t the cause of the problem.

Clear Cash app data cache

If nothing has solved your problem so far, there may be a problem with the Cash app’s data cache. If the cache is corrupted, you may need to clear the cache to get the app working again.

Unfortunately, the only way to clear an app’s cache on the iPhone is to delete the app and then reinstall it from the App Store. But you can clear the Cash app cache on your Android device without deleting the app:

1. Start the Settings app and press apps.

2. If necessary, press See all apps then press cash app.

3. Faucet Storage and caching.

4. Faucet Empty the cache.

Ask your bank

The problem may not be due to the app not connecting properly. If you’re having trouble completing a transaction, the problem is more likely to be with your bank. You may need to speak to your bank’s customer service to authorize the Cash app or find out why you’re having trouble with a transaction. If in doubt, call your bank.

If all else fails, contact Cash App customer support. The app maintains excellent customer service, both on the website and in the mobile app.

On the app, tap your account icon at the top of the screen, then, in the Account settings section, choose Support. Faucet Start a conversation to start a live chat. On the website, tap Settings in the navigation pane on the left, then tap Support at the bottom of the page. There is no live web chat, but you can email.
