Cash App For business Vs. Personal account
Cash App is largely used as a personal peer-to-peer money transfer application. Cash App is super popular among family and friends as it is quite a fast, safe, and reliable payment app. But, in recent years due to the increasing trend of cashless payments, more and more merchants are accepting Cash Apps to charge their customers. So, the million-dollar question is how a business account is different from a personal account on Cash App? Here below is the quick comparative rundown:
- Receiving money from contacts for personal account holders is free but the same is chargeable for business accounts on Cash App. Currently, Cash App charges a 2.75% fee for each payment received by merchants from their customers.
- Cash App helps merchants to fill and submit tax reporting to the IRS. Business account holders on Cash App get a 1099-K form, and merchants who invest money in Bitcoin get the 1099-B form.
- Merchants can create an exclusive and personal payment link which is generally known as Cash.me link. Users can create cash.me payment link and share it on blogs, SMS, email, website, whatsapp messages and can receive money from Non-Cash App users as well.
Cash App business account fee (common fee structure explained)
Interestingly, Cash App personal and business accounts have more similarities than differences. Both are free to download and set up. In addition to that, there are a few more similarities as mentioned below:
- Standard bank transfer is free for both personal and business account holders. And the instant bank transfer fee is 1.5% for both.
- Making any payment using a linked credit card on a Cash App business account is 3% which is the same for personal as well.
- Withdrawal of cash money using a Cash App card is also chargeable on both types of accounts. At this time, the cash-out ATM fee is $2.
- There is no difference in features of Cash App direct deposit and Cash App card. These two features are free to enable and activate respectively.
How to change Cash App for business account to personal account?
Cash App aim is to simplify money management at the ground level. If you think a personal Cash App account is better than the business one then you can always change your account from business to personal. On the contrary, if you think a business account is good then you can change your Cash App from personal to business with ease of mind. These are the steps to change Cash App business to personal or vice-versa.
- The first step to changing your account type on Cash App, press your profile icon.
- Now navigate downwards a little and tap personal.
- After that, get all the way down to find and select "Change Account Type".
- To enable and save the changes, scan your touch id or enter your PIN.
Cash App for business account limits
With a verified Cash App business account merchants can send $7500 per week and receive unlimited money. In terms of direct deposit, business account holders can receive a maximum of $50000 in a day. However, each Cash App direct deposit payment must be less than $25000. The same is applicable for personal account holders on Cash App. On the other hand, if your business account is not verified, you will be allowed to send only $250 per week. And the receiving limit will be up to $1000 per week.
Is Cash App best for big businesses?
Frankly speaking, Cash App business could not be described as the best payment app for well-established businesses. In comparison to other business payment apps, Cash App lacks some major features. For example, the Cash App business does not offer any feature to take or accept orders, track inventory, and manage employees. Invoice and spreadsheet features are also missing. It receives and sends money in only US dollars.
So, keeping in mind all these shortcomings, we can't say that Cash App is best for big or medium-sized businesses. But, as it is a simple payment app and super popular among people, therefore, it can be a good idea to use a Cash App to receive just small payments.
Is there a clearance fee on Cash App for business accounts?
No, there is no clearance fee on the Cash App business account. Note that the clearance fee is nothing but just a cooked-up trick to fool people who use the Cash App. You will never find such a fee on the Cash App mobile application because Square Cash App does not charge before or while sending or receiving the money to and from contacts. So, ignore those who say you need to pay a clearance fee to receive the pending money. You can complain to those people to Cash App customer service.
