There's no way to add a debit card to your Cash app from a PC because you can't log into your account in the browser. You will need to use the mobile version as your account is linked to your phone.


FAQ

Can you have two debit cards on the Cash app?

No, the Cash app does not allow you to register more than one card and bank account at a time. But you can change an expired or non-functional bank card by following the instructions below:

1. Launch the Cash app on your mobile device.

2. From the main menu, tap the bank icon located at the bottom left of your screen.

3. Tap "Linked Accounts". You will see your credit card and bank account linked. To unlink a debit card, look for it in the “Bank Accounts” section.

4. After opening the debit card details, tap on the three dots icon in the corner.

5. Tap "Replace Debit Card". Optionally, tap "Remove debit card" to remove its details.


6. Enter the new card details. When done, tap "Add Card" at the bottom of your screen. Your card is now added to your wallet.

Why can't I add a debit card to the Cash app?

A debit card not linked to the Cash app is a common problem. This happens because your card is not supported by the app. Currently, the Cash app only supports Visa, America Express, Discover, and MasterCard. Trying to register some corporate debit cards and prepaid cards will result in an "Error" message on your screen.


If you don't see the "Error" message, you may need to link your bank account first. Follow the instructions provided below to link a bank account to your Cash app:

1. Log in to your Cash App account from the mobile app.

2. On the main screen, tap the bank icon located at the bottom left of your screen.

3. Tap "Add Bank".

4. You will be asked to enter your bank details. Do that and tap on “Add bank”.

5. On the next screen, tap "Add Credit Card".

6. Enter your card details and tap 'Add card'. Your card should now be linked to your Cash App account.


If your bank account was already linked but you can't add a card, you may already have a card on file. The Cash app currently only supports one card at a time.

Pay easily

Hope our guide helped you add a debit card to your Cash App account. While it might be a hassle that you can't add a second card to the app, it does speed up the login and payment processes. Users would be wise to pay attention to updates as developers may add more supported card types soon.
