Zelle and Cash App are two of the most popular apps for person-to-person payments that allow us to send and receive money quickly. It raises the question of whether Zelle works with Cash App so that we can send money between the two platforms.
However, we should consider that no method allows us to transfer money between the two platforms directly. But, in the end, it may be possible to do so by following a procedure we will explain below.
Is it possible to transfer money from Zelle to Cash App?
The short answer is no directly. There is no support between the two companies to allow transfers between them, and therefore we will not be able to transfer money directly. Zelle does not have a digital wallet because all payments are made directly with our bank account.
Cash App, on the other hand, has the features of a digital wallet to have a balance. We can use this balance to make payments and money transfers.
However, there are ways to move money between both applications, linking them directly to the same bank account. If a person wants to send money to us with Zelle, we can receive it in our bank account linked to Cash App and make quick transfers to our Cash App balance.
How to transfer money between the two applications?
As mentioned above, linking the same bank account to both applications is necessary. To do this, we will have to follow these steps:
Add bank account to Zelle
- Log in to our Zelle account.
- Go to the settings section.
- Select the Add Bank option.
- Follow the instructions of the application.
Add Bank Account to Cash App
- Log in to the Cash App.
- Select the Banking Tab option.
- Click on Link Bank.
- Follow the instructions.
Once we have linked the same bank account to both applications, we can start moving funds between them in a simple and fast way.
How to move money from Zelle to Cash App?
The first thing we need to do is to send the money directly to our bank account that is linked to Zelle. Then we will have to move the funds from the bank account to Cash App simply and fast, having the bank account linked.
We can also move money from Cash App directly to our bank by following these steps:
- Log in to Cash App.
- Select the Balance button.
- Click on Cash Out.
- Enter the amount of money we want to withdraw.
- Select the transfer speed, which can be standard, free, and can take 2 to 3 days to process or instant, with a fee of 0.5 to 1.75%.
- Enter our PIN to confirm the transaction.
When we finish following these steps, we will have already managed to make a transfer to our bank account. This way, we will successfully transfer the money from Zelle to Cash App using our bank account.
Can the Cash App Card be used in Zelle?
Cash App allows us to apply for a debit card; however, this card cannot be added to Zelle because it will not work as it is a prepaid card. When we try to add our card to the application, we will encounter the error that will tell us that the card is not eligible.
For this reason, it is impossible to use this way to make payments between both platforms much faster. It is because Zelle requires cards to be issued by a bank and does not accept prepaid cards.
Is it safe to use these platforms?
Both platforms are safe and have strict security measures to protect all online transactions. To this end, they use data encryption, which will protect against fraudulent transactions that may arise. However, it is the users’ responsibility to keep their login details secure.
In addition, these transactions cannot be lost, so they will be very secure when making money transfers. Furthermore, additional we can use verification measures such as two-step verification via text message or email verification.
Is it possible to send money to other payment platforms?
Unfortunately, if we use Zelle or Cash App, we will not be able to make money transfers directly to other platforms such as Venmo or PayPal. The procedure to perform these transactions would be the same as we have seen through our bank account.
Otherwise, there is no other possibility to send money between the two platforms and receive it directly. We will always need an intermediary bank, so we will have to link our bank account to both payment platforms to make this transaction.
