FAQ

Cash App Link Vs. Cash App Pay

The major difference between the two payment methods is that Cash App Link is a link to your Cash App $cashtag (e.g cash.app/cashtag) while Cash App Pay uses the Square API integration that connects to your Square account.
Notice that Cash App Pay requires a Square merchant account while Cash App Link requires a Cash App account.

Does this plugin integrate the Cash App Pay integration?

Yes, Checkout with Cash App on Woocommerce integrates the Cash App Pay end-to-end API payment integration since v4.0.

Also there is an extra payment method added that provides a quick and easy way to display to your customers your CashTag and to link them to it.
It only displays your cashtag to the customer and redirects them to it so that the off site Cash App transaction can take place.
Please check screenshots for more details on what is reported.

Do I need a Cash App account or a Square merchant account to use this plugin?

Yes, you need either a Cash App account or a Square merchant account. This plugin comes with 2 payment methods for Cash App. One requires a Square merchant account and the other requires a Cash App account.

What is emailreceipts.io and do I need to integrate it?

emailreceipts.io is a service that allows you to track Cash App link payments and update order statuses automatically.
The integration also helps send automated emails to your customers when their order status changes.
If you do not want to use emailreceipts.io, you will have to manually update the order status in your Woocommerce admin dashboard.
