I just discovered something awesome and I couldn't wait to share it with you guys!
Normally when you think of transferring money PayPal, Moneygram, or Western Union come to mind, right? Well I have something that will completely change the way you share money - Square Cash!
Square Cash is an app that allows anyone the ability to send money to friends and family or get paid for a business quickly and easily! There's no "cashing out" required - the money deposits directly into your bank account, it's easy, and it's free! Yes, it's FREE! All you have to do is download the Square Cash app, link your debit card, and start sending or requesting money. It's just that simple!
When you create your Square Cash account, it will look like this. You can add a profile photo, your card information, phone number, and even create a "$Cashtag," which is a sort of screen name in which people can find you in the database, if you don't want your real name out there.
See the screen below? This is where you will go to type out how much money you want to send or request. The icon in the upper left-hand corner is where you go to access your profile (as shown above). The icon in the upper right-hand corner is where you will go to look at your past activity (as shown in the very last picture of this post).
You have the option to allow the transaction to function automatically or, to make things extra secure, pick the option to type in your CVV each time before - this goes to show how secure Square Cash is!
Once the transaction is complete, you will receive a notification letting you know that you have either successfully sent money, received money, or have gotten your referral benefits, as shown below. And that's another thing - you even get rewarded for referrals on Square Cash! Every time you refer someone to the app and they complete a transaction, both you and your friend get five bucks! How awesome is that?
The thing I like about this app is that it is so basic! You don't have to fill out a bunch of information, show any identification, or even leave your house! Everything is done quickly and easily from your phone! Speedy, simple, and secure - what a better way to describe it!
If you would like to investigate further, go check out Square Cash on Facebook or Twitter! But if you're convinced and interested, head on over and download the app right now!
