Can You Get a Refund on a Cash App?
Of course, yes! You can get a refund on the Cash App. The process of requesting a refund is pretty simple. However, there is no guarantee you will get your money back once submitting a Cash App refund request.
The main reason for this is that Cash App is definitely designed primarily to be a peer-to-peer payment service. It means that the role of the company is only to provide a platform for people to send money to each other. In its terms of service, Cash App commonly does not accept responsibility for problems that are caused by successful transfers.
