Wondering what to do with Cash App pending payment statuses?
Whether it’s a Cash App payment pending that you sent yourself or a Cash App direct deposit you’re trying to receive, a pending status can be frustrating.
If you’ve got a Cash App account and process payments often, you’ll most likely run across a Cash App payment pending issue here & there.
We’ll help you get your pending payments resolved.
Why is my Cash App Payment Pending?
Are you wondering…why is my Cash App pending?
If a Cash App payment says “Pending” in your feed, it indicates that your money is frozen somewhere along the line. You must manually accept payments for first-time users under the “Pending” tab. 
Here are the steps to manually accept payments for the first time:
- Log in to your Cash App
- Once logged in, make sure you select the “Pending” tab on top of your screen (see screenshots below)
- Select an amount to accept and hit “Accept Payment.”
- Remember: from here on out; payments will automatically be accepted and received without having to accept them each time manually!
You only have to do it once
What Does a Pending Payment Mean?
Now that we’re all caught up, let’s see why a Cash app payment is pending and what we can do about it, shall we?
Why is my Cash App payment pending again?
This is a common question.
The number one reason payments end up as pending is if the recipient hasn’t accepted them. 
Payments are sent as soon as initiated, so your payment isn’t showing as pending until your recipient accepts it.
As soon as they hit “Accept” on their screen, you’ll be notified of the payment receipt and can see your pending Cash App payment has been accepted.
This typically only happens with payments sent from other users; payments from other sources, such as the initial welcome bonus and other referral credits, are loaded immediately into your account.
The same goes if you’re one of the lucky ones admitted into their Cash App loan program; those payments are also typically immediate.
How Long Does Cash App Pending Take?

The time it takes to complete a payment varies from a few minutes to even days.
There is no set timetable for the completion of payments.
The direct deposit payment will generally be processed in Cash App between 4 and 5 working days after receiving the funds.
Cash App payments are frequently processed instantly. If your payment is listed as pending, you likely need to take some action. If this is the case, follow the instructions in your activity feed to finish the transaction.
How to Accept a Pending Payment?

- Log in to your Cash App account
- Once you’re logged into Cash App, select the “Pending” tab at the top of your screen.

- Hit accept after reviewing the details of your pending payment.
- Note: At this point, you’ll need to know if the money comes from a Cash Me Out transaction or a deposit.
After accepting an incoming payment on Cash App for the first time, future direct deposits are automatically sent to your bank without having to accept them first.
The payment will appear in your Cash App activity feed once it has been submitted to Cash App for processing.
Remember, processing times vary based on the direct deposit method used.
Depending on the time of day that you receive a Cash Out or BTC transfer, it may take up to four business days for the transaction to be processed by Cash App and show up in your bank account.
If you don’t see the money in your bank account after four business days, Cash App hasn’t processed it yet.

Why is My Cash App Direct Deposit Pending?
Where is my Cash App pending deposit?
When Cash App transactions are in ‘Pending’ status, your transaction is caught in between or not accepted by the recipient.
It could also indicate site-wide difficulties and signal a server problem, in which case it is not responding simultaneously.
Cash App Pending Payment Will Deposit Shortly
Cash App payments are almost always instantaneous.
If you see that a payment is pending, this might indicate that you need to take action.
If this is the case, follow the instructions in your activity feed to complete the transaction.
Most often, when you see the message ‘Cash App pending payment will deposit shortly,’ it will provide instructions if you need to take action.
And if there aren’t instructions?
If there aren’t any instructions for specific action, the payment is likely paused between the bank and Cash App’s servers.
This means it should resolve itself and might take a little time.
Cash App Pending Direct Deposit Unemployment
Expecting Cash App unemployment deposits?
You should double-check that you’ve entered the correct routing and account numbers.
If you don’t, you’ll have to deal with Cash App unemployment deposit pending issues.
Furthermore, you must make sure your cash card is working.
And if it’s pending for a while?
On Cash App, if a deposit is pending for an extended period, it usually implies that something has gone wrong.
There may be issues with your bank’s servers not responding to the Cash App; as a result, you cannot make direct cash app transfer.
You can contact Cash App support for more clarification if needed.

How many pending payments can I have at once on Cash App?
You can currently accept up to 10 pending payments on Cash App.
Can I have a Cash Out and a BTC transfer pending simultaneously?
