How long does Cash App take to refund money? This is a common question among all the Cash App users. People who have been using Cash App as their personal payment app know very well that Cash App might take between 5-10 working days. Frankly speaking, the issue is not in the Cash App refund time. Almost all other payment apps also take the same time. The actual problem lies in the Cash App refund policy. More specifically, whether you have been scammed or sent money to the wrong person, you might not get the refund from Cash App. Why? Because Cash App is not FDIC insured. It further means that one can't legally force the Cash App to process the refund. But, it doesn't mean that you can't get a refund from the Cash App. There are two simple ways that you can try and get a refund from the Cash App. Both simple ways I have explained right here in this post. So, let's get started.
