SOMETIMES technology just doesn’t do exactly what we need it to, usually when we need it most.
For example, let’s say you see your payment from a friend is pending on Cash App – here’s what we know about why this error occurs and how to fix it.
What does pending on Cash App mean?
Sometimes you may get an error on Cash App that says a payment to or from you is pending.
This doesn’t mean you have to send the money back, unless the app prompts you to.
Instead, it’s more than likely an in-app security measure, requiring you to manually enter and accept a payment from a new friend on the app.
Other times, it may mean that one or both of you have sent or received more than the limit set on Cash App, which starts with a limit of $250 per week.
How can I get rid of the pending error on Cash App?
Unfortunately, there is no single answer to this question, as there can be multiple reasons why your Cash app is sending you a pending notification.
However, their website gives instructions on how best to figure out what’s going on.
You just need to go to the activities section of your Cash app and there should be a section for pending activities.
If you access this section, you should have options on how to settle your pending payment.
These can be simple, like manually accepting funds from your new friend by pressing the green accept button, or they can be a bit more complex, like setting up 2-factor authorization on your phone to set a higher limit.
What if none of these options work?
Like all applications, Cash App can sometimes experience problems.
However, the user’s money is likely to be safe, even if you haven’t accepted it yet.
Users should check the app in your app store to see if it needs to be updated.
If so, a simple update and restarting the phone may be enough.
If not, you should contact Cash App through their platform for further troubleshooting.
