The application, available for iOS and Android smartphones allows users to send and request funds to others, whether they are a Cash user or not. Not only is the service available through the mobile application, but Square Cash can also send and request money via email, making it practically available for any device capable of sending and receiving emails.
Square Cash works by linking a debit or credit card for sending funds and linking a bank account to receive funds. Users are not required to sign up for Square to utilize the service. However linking a card and bank account is necessary to complete a transaction. The funds transferred are not held in any sort of account balance and are deposited directly into the recipient’s bank account.
Fund requests can also be sent to groups of recipients, with the ability for the sender to check on the amount due from those requested.
