Subscriptions are very useful when you use them, but they instantly become your biggest worry when you continuously have to pay for a service you don’t use. If a subscription service doesn’t seem useful to you anymore, the most logical thing to do is to remove it from your Cash App card.
In addition to regular subscriptions to services that require you to make ongoing payments for continued access, Cash App also makes it possible to set up recurring payments in a subscription format, which you may use to pay a friend or family member. You may also be looking to disable that.
In this article, I’ll show you how to remove a subscription from your Cash App card. First, you’ll learn how you can cancel a subscription right from Cash App before getting answers to some of the most crucial questions you may have about removing subscriptions from your card.
Can I Cancel a Subscription Through Cash App?
Generally, it’s not possible to cancel subscriptions you made using your Cash Card through Cash App. To do that, you have to visit the individual websites or portals for the subscriptions and cancel them from there since Cash App doesn’t have any control over how they charge you.
If you’re finding it difficult to cancel the subscription, you may want to disable your Cash Card to effect it easily. You can head over to the cards tab on the Cash App dashboard and turn off the toggle for the card to turn it off and prevent existing subscriptions from renewing automatically.
It’s crucial to note, however, that the subscription will only fail to renew as long as you keep the card disabled. Also, disabling the card will make it impossible to use the card for regular transactions like paying at point-of-sale transactions and making online purchases.
How Long Does It Take to Cancel a Payment on Cash App?
There are many different kinds of payments possible through Cash App, which makes it somewhat tasking to answer this question correctly. There are regular cash transfers, autopay payments, regular scheduled automatic payments, and subscriptions, to mention a few. Specifying what kind of payment you want to cancel will make it easier to tell you how long it takes.
If you’re talking about the regular cash transfers, I highly doubt you’ll be able to cancel the payment after making it. Cash App is an instant payment app that processes transfers instantly without the option of return. It was designed to not be able to cancel payments after they’re made.
How Do I Remove Subscriptions from My Cash App Card?
There are two possible ways to remove subscriptions from the Cash App card: one is disabling the card entirely, and the other involves canceling it from the merchant’s website. As you’d expect, I can’t help you with the latter, as it depends on who the merchant is.
As for the former, however, you can head over to the cards tab on your Cash App interface to do that. On the toggle that controls the availability of your card, choose to disable the card and every existing subscription will stop working.
Can You Set Up Recurring Payments with Cash App?
One of the Cash App features that aren’t well known to users is the ability to set up recurring payments on the app. When you set it up, you’ll automatically pay money to a certain Cash App account at set intervals without needing any confirmation or verification from you.
Of course, the ability to set up recurring payments is a crucial Cash App feature that you can use if it can be advantageous to you. If you’re an employer that has to pay their employees a fixed wage, for example, you don’t have to head over to Cash App to make the transfer each time.
One disadvantage of the recurring payment feature that you may want to take note of is the fact that it won’t stop working until you turn it off. If you terminate the contract of one of your employees, for instance, they’ll continue to receive their periodic payments until you specifically turn it off.
To turn off a recurring payment from Cash App, you’ll have to head over to the app’s activity tab to find the transaction. Using the options that appear when you press on the menu icon, you can cancel the transaction to avoid incurring the continued cost of a recurring Cash App transaction.
If you don’t know where the app’s activity tab is located, don’t fret; the following section will show you where you can find it on Cash App to help you cancel recurring subscriptions.
Where is the Activity Tab on Cash App?
If you’ve been following this article carefully, you should already know that you’ll be doing a lot of things from the activity feed on your Cash App interface. The problem that exists with that is simple: where is the activity tab on Cash App exactly?
The activity tab can be accessed by pressing the clock icon at the bottom right corner of your screen. There, you’ll see all of your past Cash App transactions, as well as ongoing ones that have not been fully completed. You can act on any of the transactions by tapping on them.
You can’t delete individual transactions from your Cash App’s activity tab, and the only way to get rid of all the transactions is by deleting your account. Rest assured, you won’t have any reason to do that as all of your transactions recorded there are fully private by default and can’t be made public.
Cash App doesn’t offer a list of your active subscriptions that you can look through to help you remove the ones you no longer need. To remove an active subscription, you need a more workable solution, like the one pictured in this article.
