The question is whether there are any dangers in dealing with cash apps.

  2. Cash app end-of-month balances do not earn the interest. Hence, they would not pay you any good too. 
  3. Cash app users receive debit cards. The problem is that using debit cards at an ATM attracts $2.00 and is termed a transaction fee. 
  4. There are transaction limits in the cash App too. An overall limit of $ 1000, along with a maximum of $310 per transaction, is imposed for cash App customers.
  5. The reports from the square cash app are not in digital formats like Excel Spreadsheets or Digital invoices. 
  6. Cash flow information is critical for managing the same. Payment tracking is also vital. None of these features are available in the cash app.
