When you are at the store, then you need to tell the cashier that you want to load funds to your Cash App by using your barcode. Let’s say that you find them not sure about how to help. If so, you are able to show them the instructions by tapping the “?” on your map.
If the cashier has scanned the barcode in your Cash App, then you have to hand them the money that you want to deposit. It is important for you to note that the funds will be added to your Cash App balance automatically. You need to keep a copy of your receipt from the cashier.
You also need to know that some merchants may ask you to swipe your Cash Card to do the Paper Money deposit. With Cash App, the barcode needs to be scanned to start the deposit transaction.
