Transfer Failed is a common error message confronting many Cash App Users. It means that whatever action you’ve attempted in Cash App, whether it’s adding to your Cash Balance or making a payment, was unsuccessful and will not go through.
How to Fix Transfer Failed on Cash App
The Transfer Failed error message can show up for a number of reasons. Down below we’ll walk you through the first steps you should take to troubleshoot your Transfer Failed message, figure out what went wrong, and make sure it doesn’t happen again.
#1: Wait and Try Again
If you’re trying to add to your cash balance for the first time and have only just set up your Cash App, your bank’s information might still be updating. Give it a few minutes before trying to add to your cash balance again.
#2: Contact Your Bank
If it’s been more than a few minutes and you haven’t been able to add to your Cash Balance, it’s possible that your bank is blocking the transfer as part of a fraud protection mechanism. Reach out to your bank’s customer support, let them know you’re trying to make a transfer, and they should unblock Cash App.
#3: Check Your Cash Balance
If you’re having trouble making a payment, double-check that you have the funds necessary. It’s easy to lose track while making payments of how much you have in the Cash Balance — if your remaining funds are insufficient, you’ll be presented with the Transfer Failed error message.
