How Long Does It Take To Cancel A Payment On Cash App?
Usually the Cash App payment is designed to be instant and these means payments can’t be cancelled, but fortunately the cancel option is made available in some situations especially when payment is still pending then you are given the option to cancel immediately and this usually takes up to 1 – 3 working days before the money can bounce back to your Cash App balance.
How To Cancel Payment On Cash App

- Select the payment in question.
- Tap . . .
- Select Refund.
- Tap OK.
After this, wait for at least 72 hours, that is 3 working days for your money to bounce back into your Cash App balance. However, if the option to cancel payment is not available, you can try reaching out to the person you sent the money to for a refund or try contacting Cash App customer support for their help.
Although there is no guarantee that the person you sent money to will refund you back the money, but you just have to try and hope for the better, but if you want to reach out to Cash App customer support, you can send them a mail using the “Help” button on the app or you can contact them via their customer support page on Twitter @cashappcustomersupport and hope they will reply your message soon
Good thing is, there is a “Disputing A Charge” feature available for Cash App, if the payment was submitted instantly and the “Cancel A Payment” option isn’t available the best thing is to reach out to the person with their cash tag (Username) requesting for a refund of the money you mistakenly sent to them, and if they dismiss your plea / request, then you can use the “Disputing A Charge” button to get your money back.
Although there is no guarantee that this will still get you your money, reason is because first, Cash App may not approve your disputing a charge request, secondly the account you send the money to might be that of a scammer, and once they get money like this, they are more likely to cash out the money to their bank immediately and thereafter abandon the account when they sensed you will use the “disputing a charge” option to get your money back.
And then the third is the money might have gone into an account that has been marked as spam by Cash App, and Cash App restricts such accounts from making transactions, so once your money enters such account they may not be any hope getting your money back except you contact Cash App customer Support services and hopefully they answer you and send you all the necessary help you need.
