So you have loaded your Cash App balance with money, and now you probably wonder how to withdraw that money from the Cash App. Cash App is an application you can use to easily transfer funds but also make purchases in a retail store using your phone. Aside from the mobile app, Cash App has a debit card you can order and use as a regular Visa card called Cash Card.

Can You Withdraw Money From Cash App Using Only a Phone?

If you have a bank account at any bank in the country, you probably also have an online banking option, an app, and the option to withdraw money using your phone. Most ATMs nowadays have contactless options for your card and phone, where you can only lean your phone and use it as a card to withdraw money from the ATM.

So, in theory, you can use the Google Pay cash app and try to withdraw money this way. However, it seems that currently, this option is not working for the Cash App. But if you have a card or other similar application that may work, you can always send money to that app and try to withdraw it this way.

Should You Withdraw Money From an ATM Using the Cash App?

As you can see, Cash App has a visa debit card that acts like any other card issued by other banks. And this card can be used for withdrawing money from ATMs. Furthermore, just like any other Visa or Mastercard, you will be able to withdraw money for a fee. You will be charged the fee from your bank and from the bank whose ATM you are using.

The only time you will not be charged a fee is if you use your bank’s ATMs. But withdrawals from your bank’s ATMs also have limitations. So if we compare Cash Card and Cash App with any other debit card, we could say that the only difference is that you can save up money using the bank that has issued that card. But with the Cash App direct deposit discount, you will end up with similar advantages. Either way, neither banks nor apps like when you withdraw money and take cash. That is why you will always pay a certain amount in fees when doing it.
