Cash App sending limit - how to increase it

How much you can send and receive differs depending on whether your Cash App account is verified or not. If you verify your account, your Cash App limit will increase.¹

Although there’s no Cash App daily limit, with an unverified account you’re limited to receiving $1,000/month. You’re also restricted to a Cash App weekly sending limit of $250.²

To verify your account, all you have to do is:

  1. Open the app
  2. Try to send a payment of more than $250
  3. Cash App will automatically prompt you to verify your account, so follow the steps
  4. Provide your full name, date of birth and the last four digits of your social security number
  5. Complete the remaining steps and submit the verification form¹

If Cash App is happy with the information you provided, then they’ll verify your account. This will allow you to increase your Cash App sending limit from $250/week to $7,500/week and your receiving limit will become unlimited.²

Here are the Cash App limits for verified versus unverified accounts, as well as a comparison with Wise’s sending limits.

Here are the Cash App ATM limits as well as the limits for Wise, so you can see which is best for you.

It’s worth noting that with Wise the basic limit can originally be lower than what’s in the table above. But you can easily change that by going to the “Account Limits” section in the Wise app.

If you’re looking to withdraw large amounts of cash, then switching to Wise might be a smart option.

Cash App spending limit

When it comes to Cash App’s unique “Cash card”, there are also some spending limits you should be aware of. Again, the Cash App spending limit - just like the Cash App withdrawal limit - cannot be increased.

Here are the Cash App daily, weekly and monthly spending limits for its Cash card, as well as those of Wise's card.

Clearly, as you can see, there are quite a few Cash App limits when it comes to sending, spending and withdrawals.

If you’re a frequent user of Cash App, it’s a good idea to verify your account so you can at least increase your sending limit.

Alternatively, if you’re looking to send more money, with minimal fees, then using Wise is a great option. With Wise you can send, spend and withdraw larger amounts of money.
