With over 300 million users, Cash App is one of the most popular money transfer services in the UK and the USA. It makes it easy to send and receive money from friends or sell products or services.

Sometimes your app might not work as you expect. So how do you fix it? Here are some reasons why your Cash App is not working and how to fix it.

7 Reasons Why Your Money Is Not Showing on Cash App and How To Fix It

1. Your App Is Out of Date

If your Cash App is not of the latest build, it might be missing some patches to the bug hence the issues. The outdated app might also be incompatible with the device’s operating system.

Updating your Cash App to the latest version can easily solve your problem. You will need to launch your respective app store, Google Play Store or Android OS, and Apple Store for iOS and update your app.

2. Cash App Serves Are Down

Sometimes your app is not working as it should because the Cash App servers are down. This means that the service is experiencing an outage.

If this is the case, there isn’t much you can do but wait for the Cash App team to resolve the problems. However, knowing that the problem is not only on your account can give you peace of mind.

You can use a service like DownDetector to check whether the app is up and running. Once you see that other people are experiencing the same problem, you can wait for Cash App to resolve the problem.

3. Your Internet Connection Is Off, or It Is Down

A loading screen loop is one of the most common problems with Cash App users. Instead of your screen opening as you expect, the app gets stuck on the initial loading screen.

An unsteady internet connection often causes this problem. This means your phone signal might be weak or your Wi-Fi connection is weak. You can perform a speed test, restart your Wi-Fi, and launch your app again.

4. Your App Has Crashed

Clearing your app data can easily solve the problem when your Cash App crashes. You can delete your app and reinstall it to see if it will work.

This process is also a troubleshooting step that you can try once all the above methods do not work. For this step, one ‘Settings’ on your phone. Then select General > iPhone Storage > Cash App.  Then select ‘Delete App.’

Once you delete the app, go to the App Store and reinstall Cash App.

5. Due Security Measures

One of the main security measures on Cash App is your Cash PIN. The Cash PIN prevents unauthorized people from accessing your account. If you enter the wrong pin or have forgotten your pin, you might not be able to access Cash App.

If this is the case changing your PIN might help out. Here are the simple steps to follow:

  • Launch Cash App
  • Touch the profile icon on the top-right corner of the screen
  • Go to ‘Privacy and Security
  • Go to ‘Change Cash PIN’
  • Enter your new PIN

Ensure you have a PIN to easily remember to access your money in Cash App and send and receive money through the app.

6. You Have Trouble with Your Bank

If your money is not showing on your Cash App, you might find that the problem is not that the app is not connecting properly but that you might be having trouble completing a transaction. The issue will likely be with your bank if this is the case.

Once you realize the problem is with your bank, you will need to contact your bank’s customer support to find out why you are having a problem with the transaction. You might need them to authorize your Cash App.

You will need to contact Cash App’s customer support if that fails. The service has maintained responsive customer support on the mobile and website.

Contact the app’s support by tapping your account icon at the top of the screen, followed by ‘Account Settings,’ the chosen support. You can start a live chat, and customer support will help you.

7. No Funds on Your Cash App

Lastly, your money might not be showing up on your Cash App because you simply do not have any. Maybe the person you have been expecting money from has just not sent it to you.

There’s no other way to fix this problem than to have money sent to your account.


If you realize your Cash App is not working as it should, the first thing you can do is restart your app. There are many reasons why your app is not working, but if you realize that none of the troubleshooting is working, you can contact Cash App’s customer support for assistance.
