Mobile payment services like Cash App made many lives easier with their contactless payment methods and ease of use.
Using $Cashtags or QR codes, you can now pay people in a few seconds without the need to contact them.
A Cash App QR code makes Cash App payments fast and easy. To scan a QR Code on Cash App, open the app, tap the  icon on the top left corner, select “Scan QR Code,” and point your phone’s camera at the code. The payment will be processed instantly.
Also, there’s a QR code scanner that you can use to scan other people’s codes and send them payments.
But how can you generate your QR code? And how can you send payments using your scanner? Today, we’ll answer all of your questions.
Cash App QR Code
When you create an account on Cash App, you get a QR code that you can use instead of your $Cashtag to receive payments. After generating it, you can send it to your friends who owe you money.
Then, they can scan it and enter the amount they want to send you. And voila!
It’s easier, quicker, and doesn’t involve contact with people.
How to get your QR code from Cash App:
- Launch Cash App
- Click on the $ icon at the bottom of the screen
- Click on your profile icon at the top right corner of the screen
- Click on the QR code icon on the top left corner of the screen
You should now see your code in the middle of the screen. To share it with your friends, take a screenshot and send it to them or go to the top right corner of the screen and click on the sharing button. You can also let your friends scan it directly from the phone if you’re with them.
How to Use Cash App QR Code Scanner
Cash App has a QR code scanner that you can use to activate your Cash Card and pay in specific stores if you don’t carry a debit card.
Also, you can use it to send money to your friends if you don’t have their $Cashtags.
Here’s how to use it to pay or send money:
- Launch Cash App
- Click on your profile icon
- Click on the QR code icon
- Choose Scan instead of My Code from the tab right under your QR Code

To activate it, follow these steps:
- Click on the Cash Card button on your home screen
- Click on your Cash Card’s image
- Select Activate Cash Card
