How To Enable Direct Deposit On Cash App
Cash App Direct Deposit
You need an activated Cash Card to enable direct deposits. When you activate your Cash Card, you will immediately see your new account and routing numbers.
A lot of people don’t have or are unable to acquire a bank account, and Cash App offers a quick way for them to access deposits (physical stimulus checks are supposed to take longer to arrive).
You will need to sign up for a Cash Card to set up a routing and account number. Once you do that, you will need to submit your banking information to the IRS. If you happened to file a federal income tax return in 2018 or 2019 or you don’t normally file a tax return, but would still like the money to go to Cash App, the company says the IRS is releasing a tool on April 17th to update your direct deposit info with a new account.
As we are talking about the direct check withdrawal service, it is worth noting that you will require finding out & sharing some details like Cash App routing number, bank name and account number. Only then you can activate direct deposit. These are steps to follow:
Sign in to the Cash App on your phone.
Now press the "My Cash" or "Banking" button (available at the far bottom-left corner).
Scroll down to find the "Deposit & Transfers" tab.
Now tap on the cash button.
Keep scrolling down till the end of the screen. At last you will find the "Direct Deposit" option. Select it.
The next screen will show you your cashapp routing number and your linked bank account number.
Next step is to tap the "Get account" number option and proceed with checking out the box of terms & conditions.
Finally, if everything looks fine, press the "Enable Direct Deposit Account" button and Cash App account number will come to your view.
Copy the details and share them online, employer, or check issuer.

Why did my direct deposit fail on the Cash App?
Some people sign up for direct deposit to their Cash App account rather than directly to their bank account. Again, when this works the way it’s supposed to, it works like a charm. And when it doesn’t? Well, people aren’t happy. If your direct deposit has failed within the Cash App, it could be due to a number of issues (which we found by poking around the Cash App Support Twitter account and the app’s help site).
