Let us be honest, we all wish that we learnt at a younger age how to handle our finances digitally. But lucky for this generation, they can do that before turning into anxious adults, trying to figure out thing by thing in this blundered world. Keeping that in mind, Cash App has announced that anyone of age 13 and above can open a Cash App account. Up until recently, Cash App users had to be adults, meaning they had to be above the age of 18.
They can use this account to send and receive money from peers, friends and family members, among using other features. Moreover, they can also request a Cash App card for kids. However, parental authorization is still necessary for teen accounts, and there are some restrictions still. The reason behind Cash App for teens is merely to involve them in digitalization and to speed up the pace to build a cash-free society. And there is no doubt that carrying cash is not safe for anyone anymore. There is always the risk of the cash getting lost, stolen or even worse, robbed.
Before you can even begin applying for a Cash card for kids, you first need to register for a Cash App account. Now, this might sound complicated but trust us, it's basically child’s play (literally and figuratively). All you have to do is download the Cash App on your device. If you are using an android phone, download it using the Play Store. And if an iOS, then the App Store. After that, register for a free Cash App account.
Once you try to request a Cash app card or strive to make a peer-to-peer transfer, the app will verify your identity. For verification, you will be asked to input your parent’s email, phone number or the $Cashtagb username. Cash App uses this information to contact your legal guardian or parent, for them to consent to or “OK” your account. Proceeding with the verification of your Cash App minor account, you can order a Cash App card.

The card typically arrives within 8-10 business days. There may be a delay in your card arrival if the information is incorrect. You can use this card to make online or in-store payments. Even so, there are still many features not available on Cash App for 13-year-olds.
Eventually, when your Cash App account is approved by a guardian or a parent, you will have access to the features mentioned below.
Contrary to this, here are some features exclusive to Cash App users above 18.
To sum everything up, it is time to rev up your child’s life digitally. Do this by opening a Cash App account for kids. Every person above the age of 13 can apply for a Cash App account. They can use it for payments in digital form as well as in-store purchases. All you need to do is sign up for a free Cash App minor account and get it verified by a gradian or parent. After that, you can also apply for a Cash App card for kids. Teens can also set up a direct deposit. If facing any issues with the App, you can contact the Cash App customer service.
