One of the main points of using a service like Cash App is the ability to load money onto it easily. That way, you can take care of the little transfers without going through the hassle of visiting a bank branch. But is it even possible to add money to your Cash App card at 7-Eleven?
As it stands, it’s currently possible to load money to your Cash App at most 7-Eleven stores. When you do that, the funds technically go into your Cash App account, an account you can access using your associated Cash App card, which is loading money to your Cash App card by implication.
In this article, I’ll show you how to add money to Cash App card at 7-Eleven. Then, you’ll learn about the options you have for funding your card, before learning which of those many methods is the most convenient for the average Cash App user.
Can You Add Money to Cash App Card at 7-Eleven?
Before wasting your time reading tens of paragraphs, isn’t it fair for me to first answer if what I’m promising is even possible? Can you walk into a random 7-Eleven store and ask them to add money to your Cash App account for use with your Cash Card?
It’s technically possible, and that’s one of the best ways to add money to your Cash App. It’s certainly not the best chance out there, especially because you’ll be charged a couple of cents for choosing that specific mode of loading your Cash App card.
If you’re around a 7-Eleven store and you’re okay with the store taking a relatively humongous charge for doing something you can do easily from the comfort of your home, you can head over to 7-Eleven to load your card. Since that seems to be what you want, subsequent sections will teach you how to do it.
How to Add Money to Cash App Card at 7-Eleven
Stores like 7-Eleven can help you add money to your Cash App account, which will make that money available for spending on the associated Cash App card. There are several ways to add money to a Cash App card at a 7-Eleven store, but the most common is having them scan your barcode; here’s how it works.
So, you can generate a barcode from your Cash App account, which you can show to the cashier at a store like 7-Eleven or Walgreens. The cashier can then proceed to scan the money to load your Cash App card so you can pay them in cash.
Another option is walking into the store with your phone and your Cash App card, and then asking the attendant at the service desk to add money to your Cash Card. For a little fee, they’ll take control of the entire process, and you’ll walk out with more money on your Cash App card than you walked in with.
With that said, here’s the step-by-step process required to add money to your Cash App card at a 7-Eleven.
- Ensure you have a verified account
One of the requirements for loading money to your Cash App at a store like 7-Eleven is having a verified account. If you haven’t verified your account, you’ll have an inconvenient limit to how much you can receive and the option to load your account using paper money won’t be available in the first place.
- Visit the nearest 7-Eleven and ask to load your account
After confirming that your account is indeed verified, you can head over to the nearest 7-Eleven store, walk over to the service desk, and ask them to load your Cash App account. You’ll have to pay them in cash, and they’ll load the equivalent of the amount you paid minus the service charge.
- Show them the barcode generated from your Cash App
There’s a way to generate a barcode that will allow the cashier at the service desk to load money onto your Cash App account. To complete the process, you’ll have to generate and show them the barcode to allow them to load money onto your card. The next section details how to generate the code to load money into your Cash App account.
- Confirm receipt of the funds
After showing them the barcode, the money should appear in your Cash App account immediately. You can confirm if the transaction was successful by checking your Cash App balance. If it has increased by the expected amount, the transaction is complete.
You should note, however, that 7-Eleven has a charge for loading Cash App cards. Thus, you shouldn’t be surprised if you didn’t get the equivalent of the amount you paid as Cash App funds. The cashier should tell you about the charges before proceeding with the transaction anyway.
How to Get the Barcode to Load Money to Cash App at 7-Eleven
As explained in the preceding section, you’ll often be asked to provide a barcode when you try to load money at a 7-Eleven store. You can generate the barcode from inside your Cash App account easily as long as you have a verified account.
To generate the code, simply head over to the Banking tab from your Cash App home screen and select the “Paper Money” option. From there, find and select the Produce Code option and show the generated barcode to the cashier at the service desk.
