Due to Cash App policy

This issue could happen due to the Cash App policy if you can not send money from Cash App to PayPal. Since you cannot make a direct link between PayPal and Cash App, there are several factors that you have to consider. 

During the time of linking your bank account, if you had provided inaccurate bank account information such as routing number, bank name, account number, or if you had done a suspicious activity, it caused a payment failure. You can face this issue if you have not verified your identity on Cash App or using the outdated Cash App software. 

🔯 How to Fix:

To fix this issue, you should give accurate bank details, and you have to verify your account on the Cash App. Still, if you face this issue, you can transfer Cash using Proxy Bank like ‘Chime’. Using this proxy bank, you can easily send your money here and there without facing any hustle.

Instead of sending the Cash to PayPal first, you send the money to the ‘Chime’ bank. You can easily do that by adding the ‘Chime’ bank to your Cash App. After that, add the ‘Chime’ bank account with your PayPal account.

Then you can access the money you have sent to the ‘Chime’ bank account from the Cash App from the PayPal bank account. If the trick does not work and you still face the issue, it would be better to try contacting customer support for more information. 

The Bottom Lines:

Cash App and PayPal are both very famous money transfer apps throughout the whole world. But sometimes, they ask whether you have a Cash App or PayPal account during payment, especially if you want to buy some products online. In these cases, you need these transfers; hopefully, this article can help you with this problem.
