How To Easily Send And Receive Money With Friends

iphone-410311_640Recently, I was asked by a friend if there was a different way that they could pay me money that they owed since we live in different states.

We had hung out a couple of weeks earlier and I paid for a large purchase since we were not able to split it. I didn’t mind paying for it, but, of course, I wanted to be reimbursed since the cost was a few hundred dollars altogether for the two of us.

Since we live so far away from each other, cash was not an easy option. I did not want my friend to send me cash in the mail as that would definitely be a disaster. It could either be destroyed or stolen.

They also don’t have any checks on them (it is 2015 after all – I don’t even have a checkbook either so I don’t blame them), but they wanted to pay me ASAP since they had forgotten about it and they felt bad that a few weeks had already passed by.

They also don’t have a personal PayPal account since they only had a business PayPal account. I then told them that I had Square Cash and that they could easily pay me through there. Yes, it’s really that easy and I don’t know why I didn’t think of it sooner.

Money can be a sticky situation to deal with when it comes to friends, but Square Cash makes it much easier and much less of a hassle.

There’s no dealing with checks, cash, or incorrect amounts. You can pay and receive the exact amount that you are supposed to get.

Below are two main questions about Square Cash that my friend asked me about.

Yes, anyone can send money with Square Cash.

You do not have to be a registered Square Cash user if you want to send cash to someone else. The only requirement is that the other person is a registered user. This obviously has to happen or Square Cash wouldn’t know where to send the money to! 🙂

How much does it cost to use Square Cash?

Sending money with Square Cash is very affordable.

With the situation above, there would be no fee since it is just a payment between friends. All friends and family payments that are sent and received are completely free. Yes, free.

There is a small 1.5% fee if you have a Square Cash business account, but if your account is a personal account then you have nothing to worry about.

Would you use Square Cash? Don’t you agree that it’s a much easier way to send and receive money between friends and family?
