How does CashApp work?
requirements for use
To use the free CashApp, you must first be a verified Facebook or Google+ member. Unfortunately, it does not work without an account with one of these two providers, as no separate registration procedure is offered.
The latest version, 2.55.2, is from August 2019, requires Android 2.3 or higher, and requires 15 MB of free space.
The registration takes place on the provider side with the help of one of the above mentioned accounts and the filling out of all relevant information fields.
However, the future user can only determine which these are in detail when he is already in the registration process …
He then designs his account with the help of a PayPal data for later payouts and goes on app and credit hunt.
To collect credits and exchange them later, the user has several options:
He can download and use game apps,
he can invite friends via a special code and collect credits after signing up, or like
certain apps to recommend and credits.
However, the two main factors are the first two points. With them, the user should earn the most money.
To the appropriate app suggestions, the user comes to the section “$ Offers”, in which he can look around for the latest ideas and offers. In addition to the suggestions, he gets an overview of which level he has to reach for which amount of money.
Alternatively, it is worth inviting friends. However, these must be completely logged in, so you get well-written as recommending user 0.2 euros.
In the section “My income” you can always see how many credits, dollars, you have already taken. These are paid out directly as money via PayPal or can be used as a goods voucher.
How reputable is CashApp?
At first glance, the website of CashApp seems relatively inviting: It is clearly structured and promises first of all important information.
Nonetheless, when you look closely, there are some sticking points that should not be ignored:
There are no details about the manufacturer of the app. A classic imprint with company headquarters and founding date of the company is missing completely.
In addition, contact is only possible via an e-mail address, specific contact persons are not mentioned.
Some areas of the website are only accessible if you are already a registered user. So there is no details about the payout system – too bad.
And the app system is not explained in detail, you will not get a deeper overview of the currently offered proposals. In this way you can not estimate before logging in, whether the app is worth it or not.
Even in the user ratings, the views differ widely, although the majority of users reported to the Google Play store were quite satisfied with the app. However, an approximately achievable amount of money per month remains completely open.
The information provided in the area of data protection is relatively extensive and includes explanations of the personal as well as the server data of the users.
It is important that personal Facebook and Google+ data are read out and used to “improve the system”. But they are not shared – if the user explicitly states (!) – and immediately shut down as soon as he deactivates the CashApp.
References to other companies
Other companies linked to CashApp are also cautioned: First and foremost, that CashApp can not be held responsible for their content and problems that arise.
This is particularly useful when CashApp has suggested an app, the user installs it, but only after de installation finds that it is not running on his system or crashes in the course of use.
Already mentally scheduled credits are eliminated and will not be replaced.
Notes on clearing and payment conditions
Good is the choice between PayPal and a voucher – and also the indication that it can take up to a coupon-sending up to two days, is helpful.
Nevertheless, a reference to the PayPal transaction fees may be helpful – according to the current state of the homepage does not show whether any incurred and how high they may be.
How many users actually have the CashApp remains difficult to say; the Google play store has a bandwidth of 100,000 and 500,000 people who purchased the app through it.
With a good 15,500 reviews, 12,000 users were satisfied with the app, reaching a total of 4.4 out of 5 points.
However, some reported a slow payout system or a depreciation …
Ultimately, every user has to make his own picture – but who prior to the application value to a high degree of transparency, should be rather critical in this app. Despite nice basic idea.
