How to send money from Cash App to Venmo with bank account

If you have a bank account, then you’re halfway through. All you need to do is to follow the steps below:

1. Linking your bank account

The first step in our money transfer odyssey is to ensure your bank account is properly linked to both Cash App and Venmo. This will enable seamless transfers between the two platforms without any hiccups.

a. Open Cash App and Tap on the profile icon

Locate the Cash App icon on your smartphone and tap on it to open the app. Once inside, you’ll find a profile icon usually represented by a circular image or your initials.

b. Tap “Banking” and select “Add a Bank”

Within the profile settings, look for the “Banking” option and tap on it. From the list of options that appear, choose “Add a Bank.”¹ Cash App will guide you through the process of linking your bank account. Follow the prompts and enter the necessary information. You can even link your Cash App to bank withdout card.

c. Repeat the process in Venmo

Now that your bank account is linked to Cash App, repeat the same process within the Venmo app. Open Venmo, access your profile settings, and locate the option to add a bank account. Enter the required information and complete the linking process.²

2. Initiate the transfer

Now that both Cash App and Venmo are synchronized with your bank account, it’s time to initiate the actual money transfer.

Launch Cash App on your smartphone and navigate to the “Balance” tab, typically located at the bottom center of the screen. This is where you’ll find your current Cash App balance and other related options.

However, the minimum transfer fee that you will have to pay on any transfer is $0.25. So, choose the option that best suits your needs.³
